Cute place for young kids. Not a lot to do but the kids loved looking at the different dinosaur statues, taking pics with them and learning about them. And they really enjoyed the fossil dig.

I took my 11 year old granddaughter to Dinosaur World. She had a good time and liked the exhibits. Did the gem mining where she had a ball. I felt it was way overpriced for what it offered which was nothing more than walking along a path looking at big statutes of dinosaurs.

My kids, my father and I stopped here on a cross country road trip to let the kids have some fun along the way. We all loved it. The kids had an awesome time panning for gemstones and on the fossil dig. It was informative but mostly a great way for the kids to have fun and run around. The... More

Dinosaur World is a fun family activity. If your kids like dinosaurs, this is the place to go. Situated throughout a path of trees, life size replicas of dinosaurs abound. It's a really educational and fun way to learn about dinosaurs. They have a great gift shop, as well. My family has been twice and we thoroughly loved it both... More

My wife and I love to travel and enjoy silly attractions. There is no way to people in their 40's should be there, especially with no children, but we were. The price is pretty appropriate especially with the 2 dollar coupon on the flyer. The park was very clean, the dinos were in good shape, some looked slightly more realistic... More

Sucked. Tourist trap. The statues on the outside are the same as the inside. Save your time and money, unless your 4 yr. Old is nuts over bad statues.

Because my kids love dinosaurs and we were passing this place on our way to Florida we decided to stop here. Ticket prices were okay but the park was not much to see. Once you do the dinosaur walk you're basically out of things to do. When my kids were toddlers this would have been more exciting.

My husband and I took our children (11, 8 ,and 2) for the day. The dinosaurs were fairly average, could be a bit more realistic. They enjoyed gem mining, didnt care much for the fossil digging, and it was too hot for the playground. The equip has no shade, so the slides/rails were extremely hot to the touch. I liked... More

My family of 8 (6 children ages 5-15) spent about an hour here in between a Mammoth Cave tour and an Onyx Cave tour. Dinosaur World seemed a bit "touristy" from the street and upon approaching the entrance, but hubby and I figured it couldn't hurt to put our brains in a jar and give it a try. We were... More

All three of my kids (3, 7, 8 yo) had a great time checking out all the dinosaurs. The signs had fun facts about each dinosaur which the 8 yo liked to read. My husband and I enjoyed the path; it was a nice, shaded walk. We spent about 1.5 hours, but could have spent a bit more time.,
