“We've been to all 3 and love this one the most”
Review of Dinosaur World

Dinosaur World
Ranked #3 of 14 things to do in Cave City
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 June 2010

We liked this one the most because it wasn't so hot. It's similar to a zoo in that you're walking etc. and this one is well shaded, in a nice part of the country. Very pleasant. The staff here was SO friendly. They were very helpful and courteous. They made you want to hang around. If you've never been, dinosaur world is basically set up like a zoo, only the attractions are life sized replicas of pretty much any dinosaur you can imagine. If you have a dinosaur lover, they will be overjoyed. This is also a very educational place. I'm a school teacher and wish we had one closer to home, I'd love to take a field trip there. It doesn't take long to complete, just a few hours, so it can easily be worked in the same day you go cave exploring. There is a fossil hunt where the kids get to dig up fossils and then keep their favorites. There's a nice museum as well with lots of educational displays. We had such a great time. I'm putting up photos with this one if you'd like to see the quality of the dinosaurs. I know it sounds like a cheesy place at first, but it's awesome.

My 9 & 8 year olds loved it as well. Not too busy or crowded when we were there. They had a ball with the whole place.

We went in April and it was raining on and off. The gift shop is huge and had some decently priced items. You can get a wristband that lets you leave and come back throughout the day if, like us, you booked a tour at Mammoth Cave and didn't have time to go through the whole park. If you do and read everything it will take around 2 1/2 hours to enjoy the park. They have a play area and picnic tables inside the park. My 17 year old had fun too reading about the dinosaurs. It was a little high in price but seeing the kids made it worth it.

Its a great place to see life size dinosaurs and get to know the details about them. I visited the park in Nov, 09 and there was hardly any rush. Had a great time spending time in the park where the falls was looking beautiful and the dinosaurs were so user friendly for photographing :). There are plenty of dinosaurs in vivid colors and species. I would call this a photographer's heaven. But the park can be made more better if they had some 3D/4D shows or even some presentations.

Pros: Nice place, friendly staff and good location, ideal for photography
Cons: Can only spend an hour or two, no shows or presentations.

We went in June and had a great time. Our 6 year old daughter loves dinasours and really enjoyed going down the paths and seeing all the dinosaur exhibits. She had a lot of fun digging for fossils. The exhibits are extremely well done and look lifelike. We got discount tickets through the Kentucky Entertainment book which I suggest ordering if you are vacationing as there are lots of different things to get discounts on and this makes the price of the book worth it. We will definately go again if we are in the area and we highly recommend this place to anyone who likes looking at different dinosaurs.
