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.

  • Yes it's a bit cheesy, but we all enjoyed the big dino statues. It was a pleasant walk around the grounds learning more about dinosaurs. For our little one, it was Dinosaur Train in person. Don't miss...  read more »
  • Visited as a way to entertain my 3 yo and 7 yo while waiting out a hurricane on the east coast. What kid doesn't love dinosaurs? However, it was pricy for the 3 of us for what you get. A walk in a bea...  read more »

  • This is a nice park for kids as they love dinosaurs. My daughter (2 yrs) was excited and scared to see dinosaurs. I wish they had some interactive shows to entertain kids. They just had one hand puppet kind of talk. We went on a hot roaring sunny day without knowing they don't have any rest areas insides. Though they are are shades everywhere, no AC except the gift shop at the entrance, so not a good destination for sunny day. There are so many insects and mosquitoes, so be prepared with your insect repellent. The ponds inside are not cleaned for long may be, they were stinky. Overall they have plenty of dinosaurs, which gives a real Jurassic park effect. But could be better. Definitely worth a visit
  • I love this place. The kids loved it to. The gem finding exploration was awesome. Highly recommended doing it. The dinosaurs are very low like and the lace is well kept.
  • The overall experience was great. It was a very hot day so I suggest getting there when they first open. The staff is very nice and courteous as well as knowledgeable about their subject. I think that if they could have had more fans as well as audio along the tour it would have made for an overall five-star experience. Would recommend!😂
  • Great place to the littles one, for a drive and learn alot about dinos. Cool hands on activities throughout the park for them.
  • Our first time here, my toddler loved it. The extra pay features like the digging and gem washing are fun to do once or twice but probably or every time. While it's obviously like a zoo with out living creatures, the activities available are a nice occasional diversion to get the kids out of the house. The playground here is also quite large and open, where the dinosaurs act as an interesting backdrop to the play area. While not as huge as a zoo, it obviously doesn't need to be and for the attractions here it is quite large. For smaller kids and toddlers, this is worth coming a couple times a year. For older kids, maybe once or twice to see some of the stuff and do the activities is sufficient. Also a large gift store so if you need anything dinosaur, here's a good place to look
