Really touristy. They do have some interesting fossils for sale (pricey) and to look at. They have an outside area you can purchase admission to for the kids to dig, play, etc... Nice if you have kids that need to do something while in Glen...More

This is a wonderful adventure park for youngsters. It had both great indoor and outdoor exhibits, easy walking path, very nice gift store and pet friendly. The kids have a chance to "dig" for artifacts. There is no snack bar but there is bottled water...More

You got to see all different models of dinosaurs and a fissile dig. Pay extra for gem dig. Over all good but kinda expensive.

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.

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.

The dinosaurs are statues in a natural setting, similar to what you might see in a museum. The fact they did not move didn't detract from my 5 year old grand twins enjoyment!

2 to 3 hours. Check the fossil dig times (4 or 5 times a day as I recall) and you may want to schedule accordingly.
