We went we our 3 yr old. The animatronics scared him a little, but he really enjoyed the sculptures, excavation, playground, and mining for gems. It's a super clean place with a really neat store. Just wish they had snacks available.

Easy to see entrance. Big souvenir store. Clean. Plenty of paved parking. Friendly staff. Paved walking path. Some benches along path. Life size dinosaur statues, w/plaques telling about that dinosaur. Most dinosaurs are "keep off." Playground for kids to play. Small museum. Fossil and rock dig for kids. Vending machines available. Fish to feed. Neat place to see for all... More

We are 2 adults but we enjoyed Dinosaur World. My daughter is a big dinosaur fan so we had to visit. Long trail with life size dinosaur along the trail, kids area, museum with moving dinosaurs and a nice gift shop.

My wife and I stopped in to check this out. They have a really good store and souvenir area. For a fee they have an activity area for the whole family to enjoy. It is located just outside the State Park entrance- so be sure not to get them confused.

There's plenty to do here and it's easy to spend several hours while exploring all it has to offer. The animated museum is not large, but it's very well done.

I thought this place would be something of a sham but no!! There must have been 50 or so life-size dinos!! All were stages very nicely throughout a 1/2 mil stroll through the facility and included names and information on each one. The toys in the shop were very reasonable.

We visited with our two kids, ages 6 and 3 and my in-laws and we all had a great time. The outdoor trail has shady spots and benches throughout. There were some fun opportunities where the kids could climb into a dinosaur mouth and dinosaur egg - made for fun photos. Even the trash cans here are fun. They have... More

We were traveling through and tried to beat the storm, but were unable to visit the outdoor portion. They had lots of great buys in the gift shop. We will make the drive back out one day to walk the exhibit.

Great place for kids especially owe that love dinosaurs. Most of the exhibits are outside so in the summer it's good to go early when it opens. Definitely pay the extra to do the mining. We just bought it for the kids and helped them. Nice play area and picnic tables to bring your own picnic. We live in Glen... More
