A lot of life size replicas. A place where the kids can dig for fossils, and dig for life size dinosaur bones. We went in the winter, so it was very pleasant to walk through. Only negative is they seem to believe in evolution.

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...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...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....More

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.
