More than a tourist trap.

Visited recently with a toddler. To be honest we didn't expect much more than a roadside tourist attraction, and that is part of it. However if you have young children I would... read more

My son enjoyed the dinosaur world, fossil dig was a good experience, indoor museum was cool, we saw the dinosaur fossils, animatronics was an added special children love. Overall, we had a good time.

Visited recently with a toddler. To be honest we didn't expect much more than a roadside tourist attraction, and that is part of it. However if you have young children I would recommend. The quantity of dinosaur statues was surprising, many more than expected. Our daughter enjoyed feeding the fish and turtles in the pond. And the large playground at... More

Prices seem spendy to go into Dinosaur World. Younger children might have a great time doing the fossil dig but my teenager didn't seem interested in going in so we passed. We looked around the large gift shop & took some nice pics outside the front of the shop.

Took the grandkids, 7 and 4, they had a great time. The park was well maintained and exceptionally clean. The mining for the gems and excavation were highlights for the boys. The playground equipment was well maintained. Love the fact that you are able to bring your own food/water/snacks onto the property.

Fun place. Great for kids 9 and younger. Anyone older has outgrown it. Favorite part was mining for gems. Wish I sprang for the emerald bag upgrade but still lots of fun

This is our grandkids' 3rd visit to a dinosaur park and this one is by far the best. The dinosaurs were displayed as if in the wild, many of them in a 'family' or 'group' setting. Also loved the display around the waterhole. The best though were the dinosaurs in the indoor section - the attention to detail was amazing.... More

We arrived later than we wanted to. But the enjoyed all three hours we were able to spend there! My son was in heaven as he is dino-obssessed. My daughter who is 10 also had a lot of fun. They wore themselves out on the walk and wanted to stay longer were very upset when we had to leave. I... More

Unique experience. The kids loved the fossil dig and the gem mining. Those were the best highlights. This became their souvenirs. Spent about 2 hours. Do it once
