Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The park is very small lovely but small. I’m rating it low because it is fairly underwhelming for the fees to enter.
The kids walked through the dinosaur forest in approx 10 minutes and then they were done. Then spent the time on a playgroup and were quickly over it and looking for things to do. We were left wondering if that was it?!
Disappointed considering others had rated it highly.
The fees should be greatly half of what they are. That would be fair and then I’d come back for a quick stop in on a long trip. But honestly given the price we most likely won’t be back :(

The dinos are made very well with a bit of movement and sounds. Our toddler loved seeing all the different dinos. A lot has been packed in a small space but enjoyable. Kids love the playground which is good for small toddlers through to little kids. Food options are limited for example just some hotdogs, chips and sausage on bread. There are picnic tables and you can bring your own food. We spent about 90 minutes including playtime and a little snack time.

Left feeling disappointed.

We took our 4 year old granddaughter here as a treat and really couldn't see any value in the entry fee.

Although she loves dinosaurs, she and many other children preferred to use the playground.

Unfortunately there wasn't much on offer food wise and the fella manning the shop turned me right off when he sneezed without covering his mouth and you could see the spray coming from his mouth. DISGUSTING!

I had a very bad experience in this place this morning with the man claim to be the manager, Jesse. This was my first time here and pay the ticket by cash. Under the recommendation by Jesse, also paid extra 8 dollars for the 'Dig and Discover' extra program. Gone in with my 2 year old, once reached to the dig and discover location, it is not staffed and signed 'closed'. While asking about it from the staff at the food stall, she told me they are under staffed, she can open the place up if someone came to replace her in the food stall. Which I found odd as they were still selling me ticket. I didn't think too much at the time, it is understandable especially during this covid climate. I thought it will be a easy refund at the end.

Spent about half an hour at the place before coming out. I communicated to Jesse about the issue where I cannot access the service I paid for. He said he is happy to refund me the extra $8 dollars if I return the 'Token'. And this was the first time I heard this Token, a red plastic disk.
I told him I was never given a token by him. He insisted he has. It is not a big place, in my mind it will be a easy verification with the staff inside that I didn't access the 'Dig and Discover' and refund me the money. However, instead of providing a solution, he just would not looking into talking to the staff inside and wouldn't admit he actually did not give me the token to start with. While he agreed with me there is a surveillance camera recording of the office which will review the initial ticket purchasing. He has refused to look into it.

To the owner: I am not sure what kind of scam this Jesse, is running at your place. It is not so much about the $8 but a lack of management skills and understanding. Not to mention it is him that failed to give me the token. A simple rewind of the surveillance camera this morning (10/12/2022) would easily review that. Just watch out for this person, not sure if it is because I paid cash. I wasn't given a receipt either.

Good exhibits for children (and for adults as well) in a small area. The train and some other attractions were closed.

The dinosaurs are really engaging and the dig and find is a nice add on for slightly older children. But overall it is around an hours entertainment for under 5s and not good value. The train looked like fun, but was not in use and the whole area looked grubby and uncared for. It needs a good clean up and some expansion before we consider returning.

It took us an hour to drive here hoping for a good day out. Really overpriced for what u get. 30 mins and your done and even the train ride wasn’t working. For the price I am not sure what they are doing with the income, it’s def not going back into maintaining the park. The dinosaurs need a good brush down to get all the cob webs off them.

Come on guys, pick up your game a little. We won’t be returning.

Great little park. Both grandsons 3 and 41/2 loved it. Even 12 month old was intrigued. Yes dinosaurs in park were old but kids didn’t mind and the fact that some roared and moved was fabulous. Great picnic area and when we were having picnic some staff dressed up with dinosaur costumes and kids loved it. Staff very friendly. My only complaint is toilets should be beside picnic area and not out of the park near parking area. Way too far if a little one needs to go.

Very small dino park. Very expensive for a backyard sized park. My kods spent the most time in the sandbox and the playground which are free in my neighbourhood. Most unenthusiastic welcome.

Visited dinosaur world today with my 4 YO son who is obsessed with dinosaurs and my 7 YO daughter. Both loved it as did myself and my wife. $50 for a family (2 adults and 2 kids). Yes it's not the size of Jurassic Park but what do people seriously expect for $50?? The dinosaurs were realistic and well done. There's a small park for kids to play in and free BBQ as well as a basic Kiosk with drinks, ice creams etc. The staff bring around baby dinosaurs which the kids can stroke and there's a sand pit. The dig and discover area is $8 each which involves the kids digging to find their own fossil which they then use tools to cut from it's casing. If your children love dinosaurs I'd highly recommend.
