We went with family that was in town and it included our two nephews, ages 6 and 10. We were very pleasantly surprised. Great facility that is very well kept up. Lots to do. We ended up being there for 4 hours and could have stayed longer. Much larger than what you would expect from looking at the outside. Even the four adults really enjoyed this.

They do allow you to bring food in and there are several picnic table areas in the shade. Check the schedule before you go as far as the free activities they offer. Our nephews really enjoyed the fossil dig.

Great time and highly recommend.

If you have little kids they will have fun. They can see a lot of different dinosaurs and the have 2 playgrounds. They have a boneyard for them to play and a fossil areas as well. Overall a nice stop. You spend around 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

We visited with our daughter and two grandsons (7 & 4). This really exceeded my expectations. The kids had a great time, the four year old most of all. The “shows” were very good and the actors quite professional and enjoyable. The statues (for lack of a better word) were quite well done, as the many pictures we took attest. Plenty of places to sit and picnic. A very nice playground for the kids too. Dog friendly and water stations about. Plenty of restrooms. The adults enjoyed as did the kids, but the most fun was had watching the kids. It was enough and not too much. Most of walking area was in shade. The souvenir shop was quite nice and pretty reasonable. I would recommend for any family in the area with kids under 10.

I took my kids (all under the age of 5) to the Dinosaur World and they had a great time. I went during the week and we got there early. The shows had different times available allowing you to walk through the whole place without a problem. We took tons of pics and the kids enjoyed all the educational information. It wasn't too packed when we got there but since it was a school day, there were a lot of kids arriving in buses during the day. Good family place and fairly cheap.

Our six year old Grandson has had a fascination for Dinosaurs since two, we took him with his mom & dad to Dinosaur World. He was thrilled to spend time talking to two Palenologists (which he has said he wants to be since he was 4). He did a fossil dig, panned for gems, went through many exhibits, nice playground and had a marvelous day (approximately 4 1/2 hrs.). We brought a picnic lunch; several covered areas in which to sit & eat. It was a perfect day & a memorable one for the whole family.
