“Go in the Spring”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Very interesting and my kids loved it. It was however the most stifling heat I've ever experienced! Pathway is cut out of Cedar brush and there was absolutely no wind at all. Go early in the morning or not at all if during the summer. Exhibits were very well placed and informative.

“Beautiful Scenic Walk ! Don't Buy THE TOYS IN THE GIFT SHOP!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

I'm glad I took my son at the age of 3. Because if he'd been much oldr he might have been bored! The Koi Pond and Statues are amazing! But, the museum and fossil dig fall very, very flat! Also the bulk of the gift shop are little action figure and dinosaur combos. We paid 15$ for a toy that literally came apart in 5 mins and would not stay together when we reassembled time and time again! Majorly disappointing! The koi pond by far was the most entertaing for my family! by lots of fish food they are big and hungry!

“Awesome!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Kids loved it! Nice and clean. We arrived right when it opened on a Saturday and was not busy at all. Picnic areas are nice and can bring own food in since that is not available. There are drink machines and can purchase water in the gift shop. Nice selection of dinosaurs and things for kids to do. Daughter had her science project on dinosaurs, so it's cool to see what they learned and can apply to the tour. Playground good for kids under 6. Fossil dig was cool and there was also a "bone yard" where they can uncover a large fossil. Will definately be back!

“Nice Outing for Kids”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Dinosaur World was very nice. It's a bit pricey but if you get a dollar off coupon then it softens that blow. They have an interactive fossil dig activity for the kids which I thought was great as well as a playground for the kids. They also have about 100 different dinosaurs on display within the park. Also they have a museum. Halfway along the trail there is a koi pond where you can feed the fish. The staffers were nice and professional as well.
