It's all pretty shaded with easy paths for a stroller. Life size replicas of dozens of dinosaurs! This place would have been heaven if I were 10 years old.

The family surprised our 3 year old grandson to visit Dinosaur World. We all had a blast! The place is immaculate, gift shop huge and the playground is great. Vincent had a great time and we can't wait to come back.

This is a great place! I was not expecting to enjoy our visit. I thought it would be a throw back to the "Olde time" Florida attractions. Shame on me! Dinosaur World is interesting, very well maintained and thoughtfully landscaped. From the gift shop through...More

We had a great time exploring the grounds. The kids were able to dig for fossils and go on a cave tour.

We visited here after seeing the cheesy looking dinosaur on the interstate on a previous trip. My boyfriend and I expected a cheesy, jokey kind of place, we couldn't have been more wrong. Don't fooled by that t-Rex, this place is actual done very well....More

We're leaving Disney to drive east and see Dinosaur World and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, has anyone done both of these in the same day? Will we have time?
