We stopped by there after driving home from the Gaylord Opryland Christmas. Its outside and COLD so dress appropriately if you are crazy like we were and went when it was 25 degrees out! They have a nice walkway and a bunch of lifesized dinos that my son enjoyed! No animatronic ones though. All in all a nice stop. Courteous... More

We visited with our almost five year old and she had a great time. The dinosaurs are huge and there are a LOT of them! Way more than I expected! The walking path around to see them is nice and was fully accessible for a stroller. The museum was interesting, but the highlight (other than the dinosaurs) was the "dig"... More

We visited Dinosaur World right when they opened on a Saturday in July. There is plenty of parking in a large gravel lot out front. You enter in through a gigantic gift shop to purchase your tickets. We found a coupon in a Dinosaur World brochure (rest stops and hotels all had them) for a small amount off each ticket.... More

We planned on visiting Dinosaur World in the morning before going to the Down Under Zoo in the afternoon. I honestly wish we had planned to spend more time here. The walk through the woods to see the dino sculptures was fantastic, and the statues are placed among the trees to make them look more natural. The kids spent an... More

I had my bachelorette party in Cave City, KY this weekend and we capped the trip off with a visit to Dinosaur World. We had a BLAST. This was perfect for an offbeat bachelorette party, especially since we stayed in the Wigwam Village the night before. Seeing all the dinosaur replicas in the woods was so cool! The gift shop...

We have passed the large dinosaur near the interstate for years. Always thought it was neat but not neat enough to stop. Today we decided to stop and it was well worth it. On your visit there is a nice trail with over 150 models of dinosaurs. They have been placed among the forestry to make it look very natural.... More

I took my granddaughter and she had a blast. She loved playing on the dinosaurs and asked me to take a picture of her with just about everyone of them there. She enjoyed the "mining" experience before we left.

My sister had stopped and taken pictures of some of the Dinosaurs up front. It was closed that day but I knew if 3 nearly 40 yr old people could have that much fun in the parking lot it would be a BLAST for my scouts. As you enter you pass through the gift shop. This would usually be a... More

We have been three times driving through in road trips! My son loves this place. I like that it's all outside and nice shaded walking paths. Great when you've been in a car for hours. It's reasonably priced. The gift store is where they really get our money having a Dino lover in the family.

Life size Dino replicas scattered around the grounds. We didn't have a kid to enjoy it with us but, my wife is a retired elementary teacher so the park was obligatory. It wasn't expensive so good value for the money. Glad we went.
