    Amazing SEN friendly place!
    My autistic son absolutely loved it!! its sen friendly and also disabled friendly my mum went round on her foldy mobility scooter. the staff where great and we where able to store my sons pram by the staff bit so we could concentrate on looking around and not pushing the extra pram. Very interesting write ups and lots of great photo opportunities. I'd love it if it was that little bit bigger but its great how it is staff very patient with my son who absolutely destroyed the gift shop (don't worry we put it All back😂) loved the certificates also even though my son was too young to understand he felt included. Loved the hidden extras with the lights and loved the sandpit. Was very clean and tidy the drawing room was clean with fresh colouring pages put out regularly and nice selection of dinosaur books! Thanks for a great time we will be back

    Dino stickers
    I went with my daughter and 2 friends or colleagues depending on the wind. My daughter enjoyed it untill she decided she was tired but enjoyed the quiz and getting a certificate. The true glory of this place is that it caters for undiagnosed acoustic persons. The quiz kept her from having jittery movements and at one point, her tongue was hanging out of her mouth as she enjoyed filling in the "adult" quiz. She disliked the darker areas but again undiagnosed acoustic however and I quote "my favouritest bit is my new Dino sticker" All in all good experience if your a Child or acoustic.

    A great time
    I went to dinosaur world with my son (6) and daughter (3) today and it was fantastic - especially for my 6 Yr old who was absolutely in his element. Loads of information for him to soak up, really engaging exhibits and such wonderful friendly staff. My 3 yr old also had a fab time and although she didn't engage with the writen information in the same way, there was still plenty for her to do. Highly recommended - thank yoi

    Perfect for younger children who are dinasaur mad!
    My son is 4 and he absolutely loved this place. Perfect for younger children. He loved the quiz and the lady working there was amazing with him. Even my 1 year old had a go at the sand pit with the fossils. Defo recommend if you have younger children. It's not massive but lots to do there for the price.. defo recommend 👌

    Awesome place
    1st time back since new owners took over and the place looks amazing! Decorated for Halloween on our trip with lots of added gore that my daughter loved! The quiz wasn't too hard for children, encouraging them pay attention to the facts as well as see the dinosaurs. Lots of opportunities to sit on dinosaur models for pictures, interactive activities including a new computer game for added entertainment. Reasonably priced unlike a lot of attractions now. Will be back to see what they have for Xmas and Easter too!

A definite gem of Torquay! Highly recommended! 🦖💚

    Brilliant visit
    We went with our toddler, he was besotted. The visit was great and they put so much effort into the Halloween half term. The staff were friendly and engaging and I was so impressed. We only found the place by accident and we’d certainly recommend it. The merchandise was well priced and the ticket lasts all day so you can leave and come back if you wish. Thank you for everything and see jib again soon.

    Fun and Engaging for Adults with Younger Spirits.
    Me and my partner saw this icon on google maps and figured we'd go see what it was all about as we'd just finished watching the new season on netflix with Morgan Freeman. Walking into the place was very welcoming and friendly, but first impressions are that this is for younger audiences. Dont let this put you off because there are many facts/pictures and life size figures better appreciated by adults (as it would go over childrens heads). The tour takes about 1 hour / 1.5 hours if slower, but entertaining and engaging for adults too. In some ways, we came out feeling a bit like kids again. We got 100% on the free quiz (walk around finding answers), received our certificates and gladly accepted a sticker! TIP= Ask which artefacts are real before putting your hands into dark boxes XD Favourite part of the tour= Owners dog free roaming and coming up for cuddles. Very friendly and so soft.

    Fantastic for dinosaur lovers! Don’t be fooled by the small frontage of the place. It’s bigger than you think!
    What a lovely little place! My son is dinosaur obsessed and had a wonderful time here looking at all the dinosaurs and learning lots of interesting facts! We took two hours to go round it all, and loved the quiz, computer memory game and the dinosaur drawing and reading corner, some great ideas and a well run place. Friendly staff and very reasonable entry. Loved the certificate they collect at the end too, lovely touch!
