We stopped here on the way to Sea World since my 3 year old son asks if he can go there every time we pass it & I always tell him that we'll try it next time. So, this time we actually stopped & gave it a try. It was good for a stop on the way to something else,... More

Dinosaur world was a nice way to spend a day outside. The dinosaurs were huge in relation to size. It was hot but they have a lot of shade. I think it is cool that you can have birthday parties there. They have two different playgrounds at the park, one for small kids one for bigger kids. Make sure you... More

While here you feel like you're really back in time. The natural environment is fitting for these dinosaurs. There is plenty to see while you walk under shaded trees. Not crowed or overpriced. They could use more fans, especially on hot days like today. My four grand children loved it. They are ages 6, 7, 8 and 15..

Our family of four decided to check out Dinosaur World last weekend. We were pleasantly surprised, the park was very clean and had quite a bit to look at. Our oldest son is three and he had a blast. He was able to walk the entire park with out taking a break. The parks walking paths are paved and great... More

We had a great time. The boys loved it here. We ate lunch and made a day of it here. It's a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather. The boys want to come again

Park grounds are well kept and stick to the theme--No need for other. One can take great pictures and learn some historical dino facts but If you expect hi-tech talking robots then this ain't the park for you. Yet; if you are a wanna-be paleontologist and love to learn then this park serves you well. My son-4 yrs old--loved it... More

Having driven pass this on the I4 a couple of times, finally decided to take trip to visit the park. With two boys aged 2 and 5 they both thoroughly enjoyed themselves, just be aware of how hot it gets in the sun and you have drinks

First visit - after living in Florida for 14+ years I'm sorry it took us so long to visit. We went for a kids birthday party and had the best time. We were very surprised to find the park well maintained - parking lot recently paved and lots of parking. The entry area holds a huge gift shop which is... More
