Fun for the kids and very educational. Dinosaurs are life-size, which makes it very engaging and really impressed my nephew. The museum provides a lot of information that feeds a child’s curiosity about all things dinosaurs.

Description

from Dinosaur World Florida
Dinosaur World is Central Florida's only attraction dedicated to the giants of years past. The 20-acre theme park is conveniently located between Tampa and Orlando on Interstate 4 and a must see for families exploring the area. Spend your visit walking amongst some of the most feared predators ever to walk on the planet before heading off to explore the outdoor shows and entertainment including the Dino Disguise Show, Excavation Cave Experience, and the all-new Triviasaurus Rex Game Show.

Practice your skills as a paleontologist at the area’s largest Fossil Dig before you head over to the Boneyard Excavation to try your hand at uncovering a prehistoric skeleton sure to add a little roar to your day. And don’t miss Dino Gems Mining Operation where everyone uncovers a keepsake to treasure. The park also features a colossal skeletal playground for kids that’s large enough to contain even the loudest pitter-patter of little dinosaur feet.

"Family Fun Day"
January 2019
We had a Family fun day with a teenager and a 10-year-old. There was lots to see and do. Lots to explore. The staff was absolutely excellent and shared dinosaur facts while you were walking around and exploring. The scenery is absolutely beautiful while the kids were having fun, my husband and I enjoyed holding hands walking through the beautiful outdoor garden areas. The scenery and the creeks and yes the dinosaurs made it all a beautiful adventure. Lots of hands on activities that both the children really enjoyed

Tip: Bring a packed lunch and have a family picnic. There are tons of picnic areas and you get to dine outside with the dinosaurs. There is also a fabulous playground with covered picnic tables

Reviewed June 19, 2020 NEW
Immaculately clean grounds and shop. Superb signage and education. Covid restrictions have interactive portions closed, yet because it IS outdoors it was a something-to-do-during restrictions destination, plus we could bring our dog. This is a time machine escape to your childhood when dinosaurs roamed the earth fantasy come true. Even in the Florida heat the gorgeous jungle vegetation keeps you pretty shaded. We very much appreciated not only the dinosaur history identifications, but the foliage information as well. The park offers the range from "ooh look at the big dino!" to deep paleontology data and fossils display. It exceeded our expectations and we look forward to returning.

My nephew, his wife and kids were down in March and we all went to Dinosaur World. The kids loved it and were so excited to see all the exhibits and to dig in the sand like an archeologist! They also mined for gems which they loved! A nice little place to spend the day.

"Much better than I thought!"

Reviewed May 23, 2020
I have driven by this attraction for years and never thought much of it. However, during the Covid-19 time, we were looking for things to do so we took a trip to Dinosaur World. We were absolutely blown away by both how big the property was and how dinosaurs were actually out for our kids to see. The place is so well maintained and we felt safe in regards to the overall guest count (Covid-19 related). We will be back many more times as my son talks about it all the time!

Reviewed May 13, 2020
Had a 2nd Birthday Party here! It was great for ALL ages; the young, old and teens! The grounds were clean and beautiful! The dinosaurs looked pretty realistic if I do say so myself! The walking trail in the back was GREAT!! The kids and adults enjoyed the activities available!! Our party set up was at the playground and covered picnic tables (which we had to reserve.) they give you the flexibility to set up your area the way you choose! I highly recommend for all to visit for any occasion!!!
