We took our son to Dinosaur World and he loved it so much that he didn't want to leave. We went on a trek to find dinosaurs in the jungle, dug up dinosaur fossils, and sifted for precious stones in a nearby stream. It was a very eventful day!

I took my sons here while we were staying in Tampa over Spring Break. Wow! This place is very clean, well kept, the staff is nice and knowledgable about dinosaurs, and there is a huge playground at the end. After all the crowded places we went in Tampa, it was nice to go somewhere that wasn't insanely crowded and enjoy... More

Visited this park with family including a two year old and while it was interesting to see the variety of types of Dino's the actual exhibits were a little underwhelming. It was a good walking experience however you need to take water with you and snacks for young children as there is no place to purchase along the route. Would... More

The park is ok, although I admit the Dinosaurs were underwhelming. Walking the trails to see the dinosaurs was nice, the discussion with the paleontologist was cool. The kids really enjoyed the mining experience, which was an additional purchase, but it was the best part of the day for the kids. There isn't any food available for purchase in the... More

Overview: Parking was good. Ticket prices were fair. Seniors tickets costs less. Variety of life size Dinosaurs shown in their natural wild setup along with some plants from Dinosaur era. Small museum tour showing real dinosaur bones etc was awesome. Plenty of Picnic tables under the shade. Children play area for kiddos. Other activities such as Gem mining, finding bones... More

It was a nice visit.. Something different. We took lots of pictures with and of the Dino's watched an archeology talk and walked all over the park. It was a good place to walk, have a picnic and a great place for kids to learn about Dino's.
