Dinosaur World lets modern-day adventurers see what the world was like when dinosaurs ruled the earth. More than 150 life-size dinosaurs peer imposingly from the hillsides, crane their necks up through native trees, and stomp through prairie fields at the theme parks that stretch out over 20-plus acres of land in Texas, Florida, and Kentucky. The fiberglass, steel, and concrete dinosaurs reach up to 80 feet in length, and are built according to the latest scientific discoveries about what dinosaurs looked like.

Starting November 8, visitors will see 20 dinos come to life at the new animatronic dinosaur exhibit.

Visitors who want to experience what it's like to be a paleontologist can dig for fossils at the Fossil Dig and uncover a life-size stegosaurus skeleton from under the sand in the Boneyard. The Dino Gem Excavation lets explorers uncover something entirely different?real minerals and gems?and a geode cracker lets them split geodes to reveal their beautiful crystals. Before leaving, visitors can play on the dinosaur-themed playground and check out the Prehistoric Museum to see a variety of cast and real fossils.

With a veritable banquet of indoor and outdoor amusements, Putt-Putt Fun Center beckons fun-seekers to its three area locations. Challenging miniature-golf courses and variable-speed batting cages put competitors to the test while pixel professionals tackle the latest games inside raucous arcades. Friendly staff members handle all the details of birthday-party packages, laying out ice-cream cups, cutting cakes, and personally pre-opening all of the presents.

The Hurst location, the largest of the three, fields many additional games and rides. Go-karts zoom around dual tracks, bumper boats bob and ricochet in their pool, and rides such as teacups and planes teach youngsters important lessons about centrifugal force.:

At Rockwood Gokart Track, drivers 4'8" and taller buckle up and burn rubber around the outdoor course's tight twists and serpentine turns. There's 12 colorful, single-seat go-karts to choose from, and parents can ferry their little ones (3'4" or taller) alongside them in one of four double-seat mini speed machines. Serious go-karters can also purchase parts or whole new go-karts at Rockwood Gokart Track, or get their current one running again with repairs and promises of oil sandwiches.

Consider activities that take about an hour to complete: a trip to the grocery store, a relaxing massage, watching a favorite television show. Rarely, if ever, do haunted houses fall into this category?unless you're talking about Cutting Edge Haunted House in Fort Worth. In 2009, the attraction?s length caught the attention of Guinness World Records, which deemed Cutting Edge the longest walk-through haunted house in the world.

Looming in a section of the city dubbed ?Hell?s Half Acre,? Cutting Edge populates an abandoned meatpacking plant that was originally built in the late 1920s. The plant?s equipment is still fully operational, and still resides inside?only today, it processes humans. To escape such a grisly fate, guests must grope through a multi-storied labyrinth replete with unthinkable horrors such as live monsters, realistic special effects, and salsas made in New York City. Cutting Edge is so terrifying, in fact, that it even earned the top spot on HauntedHouseRatings.com's list of the best haunted attractions in 2013.

The bright blue sky and the puffy clouds in the air might fool less-observant patrons, but Celebrations Indoor Adventure's 5,400-square-foot playground is all indoors. Inside, kids leap around in the bounce house and scoot down slides. In the main-street playset, they cruise in kid-sized cars, searching for a place where they don't have to parallel park. Games such as foosball and air hockey let older kids enjoy some friendly competition, while other toys entertain tykes as young as toddlers.

The smooth, pastel-tone corridors of Mountasia Family Fun Park?s two 18-hole miniature golf courses encircle the rising crags of a central waterfall that cascades past greens of orb-rolling entertainment. Putt-putt parties of all ages can choose from two different courses, navigating around obstacles that include burbling rapids and caves. The turn-filled go-kart course provides tandem go-karts so youngsters can join the four-wheel fun, and inside batting cages patrons flail away using a trusty bat. Elsewhere onsite, water enthusiasts are invited to enjoy bumper boats, Mountasia's 30-foot rock wall beckons to altitude-immune adventurers, virtual thrills reside in the video arcade, and guests take aim at each other in a post-apocalyptic laser tag area.
