Our daughter and 8 year old grandson accompanied us and our grandson British but us resident and at school here loved it so much it was hard to drag him away especially from the dinosaur walk and I have plenty of photographic evdence to that effect. In criticism I would only say that the merchandise in the shop was rather... More

Dinosaur World was a wonderful stop on a weekend away. My two-year-old couldn't get enough of the life size dinosaurs that were scattered all over the place. Their museum has animatronic dinosaurs and their gift shop is huge with an abundance of fossils and geodes to take home. I thought it was a little pricey and the exhibits are fairly... More

This is great for those kiddos and younger (or young at heart) family members. The kids really enjoyed the hike around the dinosaur trail. Be wary, though, if you have a super young one, BRING A STROLLER, otherwise you will be carrying them for what seems like eternity. The live action dinos in the museum are a lot of fun... More

Not a great place, very expensive and really not much to do once in the park unless you like your kiddos to place on a large playground.

Plan on three hours at the most and older children will be bored by then. There is a walking path that shows the different types of dinosaurs (life-size) and explains them. There is a fossil dig, bone dig area, museum, play area and gift shop. You can take in coolers for the picnic area.

We had a great time here. The dinosaurs are awesome and my granddaughter loved it! The feeding of the fish was like a fish frenzy! The animated dinosaurs were fun and like like.

Walk through the park and encounter life sized replicas of what dinosaurs might have looked like. Along the way kids can dig for dino fossils and later anyone can dig for real fossils that can be taken home with them.

Worth the drive to go see if you love dinosaurs. Was very busy the day we went but we still enjoyed it. Lots of statues to see and a big gift shop. My son loved the animatronic dinosaurs the best.

This place was so much fun. My 6 year old is obsessed with dinosaurs so he was in heaven. I have to admit I enjoyed it as much as he did. We started off by doing a gem hunt like the gold prospectors used to do. There was a fossil dig that allowed my son to bring home 3 bones.... More
