Went with the adult son and 7 year old g-son. Website built up the fossil dig (included in admission price) but the lady who gave us our tickets told us they only do the fossil dig four times/day. The tour was a self-guided walk through. I recommend bringing water as we saw no fountains and although shaded, it was hot and humid. I was glad that we applied insect repellant as I could hear bugs flying about my head. The new Mammoth section had only 2 or 3 big mammoths and some 'babies'. It was in full sun but there is a bench just before this part that is partially shaded if you need a rest. The path is pretty much shaded and cleared--all paved. Some of the animals had obvious places where the paint had come off, spider webs all over the place and one even had a birds next in its mouth. Some of the signage about the animals were very difficult to read either due to aging or the sun's reflection. The movie theatre was enclosed with bench seats for viewing (not airconditioned, but cooler than its exterior as it was a little open around the entrance/exit). The movie was good but we couldn't get our grandson to take interest as he wanted to get his pic taken inside the dinosaur head (like in the brochures). And he was excited to go to the fossil dig, and to play on the play ground. Of all the attractions we did in Cave City and Bowling Green, this definitely seemed way overpriced (even with our coupons).
