#2 of 10 in Things to do in Plant City
Featuring replicas of more than 200 life-size dinosaurs, Dinosaur World gives you the chance to walk among prehistoric predators. This outdoor museum covers 8 hectares (20 acres), with paved walkways guiding you through the natural habitats of various dinosaur species. In addition to the museum's self-guided tour, there are several staff-led, interactive experiences to round out your visit. Sift through materials looking for shark teeth, stingray barbs, and mosasaur teeth fossils. Embark on a tour led by a paleontologist through a cave, a dig site, and a workstation, and test your knowledge at the Triviasaurus Rex game show. The small museum inside the venue features three exhibits showcasing prehistoric fossils, fossils native to Florida, and motion-activated dinosaur models of Tyrannosaurus rex, stegosaurus, pterodactyl, and several others.

  • This is an amazing place for small children who love dinosaurs and have a great imagination. And I loved it too for a day of fun.  more »
  • Well worth the extra for the dino gems as our two little ones (6 and 4) enjoyed that. The staff are friendly and welcoming, some of the dinosaurs look a bit tired but all in all well worth a visit wit...  more »

  • Highly recommend!! If you are looking for a laid back day with plenty of activities and areas to keep children entertained this is the spot. You can bring infants and not be uncomfortable up to any age! There is plenty of shade which is necessary in this FL heat. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the day as much as our 2 year old son and we felt like this park is VERY reasonably priced. I recommend packing a lunch though so you can maximize your experience and not have to leave for lunch.
  • This wonderful off beat piece of local flair is a great place to go as a family or as part of a small group. The gift shop is well staffed and full of local and globally accepted gift ideas. The park is very clean and has lots of places to sit eat explore and has lots of exhibits for the kids. The park is very dog friendly. We recently visited with our 2 dogs. One 10 lb and one 60 on and there were water stations for them and areas where we could all sit down. The park was very clean and its about 3 hours to see the whole place.
  • Surprisingly awesome! I didn't know what to expect at first and from i-4 it looks somewhat questionable, but it is a fun experience for families. The entry fees are very reasonable and the gift shop prices are very affordable. The park is awesome and there are a lot of fun things to do. I highly recommend it
  • Significantly less cheesy than it looks from the outside. It's actually pretty neat. The dinosaur statues are in good shape, clearly they have people touch up the paint frequently, and the awesome tropical plants all over give a great overall feel to the place. Tons of shade. Still gets super hot in the summer though, best times to go would be spring and fall. And they're dog-friendly!!!!
  • Pretty cool I must say so myself. Even as an adult, I enjoyed my time here & learned a thing or two. The kids had a blast & the park itself is beautiful & well tended. Staff is very friendly & knowledgeable. A great place to take the kids! Get out of the house, get some fresh air & get your dinosaur-on!
