  • Our son's friend went to Dinosaur World a few months ago and he had been asking to go ever since so we planned our fall break trip around the park. I wasn't expecting much based on the Website but it ...  more »

  • A wonderful place to stop with children while traveling but be sure and allow enough time to truly enjoy the dinosaurs. We stopped in with our 2-1/2 year old and our 5 year old while traveling. There was so much to see that we should have allowed more time because the kids were mesmerized with the dinosaurs and could have easily stayed much longer. We were happy enough with this stop that we want to plan a trip back when we can truly relax and really let the kids just enjoy all that there is to see.
  • We passed by this place and thought of check the place on quick break from drive ended up spending more then 2hrs. Pretty good information along with life size figure in jungle like setup in real woods. We loved this place definitely recommend for kids. Entry price is very reasonable. Gift shop is very reasonable too and not at all over priced like in other amusement or touristing places.
  • So, I love a good roadside attraction, but this one was really great! We are two adults who travel around with our four dogs and this place not only allowed our dogs, but excitedly welcomed them in! That alone would be enough to earn a five star rating from me, but the park itself was actually pretty amazing. Like I said, we are two adults and it kept our interest and provided great photo opportunities. It was also extremely clean and had a nice nature park like atmosphere, which was great for the dogs after a long day in the van. We had a great time and I would recommend this to anyone in the Cave City area!
  • Fun place for an afternoon. Great to spend a few hours. Not an all day activity. Two to three hours tops and you don't all. The walk around to see the dinosaurs is pretty cool. Be advised it is up and down hill. I actually enjoyed seeing the dinosaurs. Layout was nice and the end area was great how it showed them all. The fossil dig wasn't much don't expect to get very much as your limited on what you can take. Gem dig was fun. Take your time there are lots of gems and you can take all you find. Our son loved the playground. It was wet in the area but not muddy. Lots of fun. Fun time if your kid loves dinosaurs.
  • Reasonably priced, informative displays, and friendly staff! If you have kids and you're driving through the area, definitely check it out! Make sure you dress appropriately for the weather though!
