With an outdoor museum that evokes the ancient beasts’ natural habitat, Dinosaur World transports kids and adults to a prehistoric kingdom ruled by more than 100 life-size dinosaur statues. Families of triceratops, boy bands of spike-tailed stegosaurs, and herds of brachiosaurs reside among the grasses and trees at the side of the park’s pathways. Made from fiberglass, steel, and concrete, the statues measure up to 80 feet in length and reflect the latest scientific discoveries in colorful, lifelike detail. Guests can venture to the fossil dig site and sift through sand to uncover authentic fossils such as shark’s teeth, trilobites, and ammonites (free for children ages 3–12; $2 for adults and children younger than 3). After unearthing up to three fossils, paleontologists can take their prizes home and re-bury them for millions more years deep in the living-room sofa. Elsewhere, the indoor museum displays everything from dinosaur eggs to velociraptor claws, and the gift shop stocks dinosaur-related books and fossils.

Because it may take up to four geological epochs to tour the entire Dinosaur World park, a shaded picnic area encourages guests to bring lunches. As with children under 3 years old, friendly pets may enter the park for free, as long as they remain on their leashes at all times and resist chewing on the tyrannosaur’s toe bones.

Dinosaur World

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.

Loved it. Took two boys, 8 and 5, and got to bring my dog since they are pet friendly. Great time.
