Ever wonder what it would be like if you could go back to prehistoric times and see real dinosaurs in their natural surroundings and learn about them first hand? Well, wonder no more…
Right here in our own backyard in Central Florida, we have Dinosaur World. You can wander among hundreds of life-sized dinosaurs in a natural setting, with interactive exhibits that capture your kids’ imaginations and dino-themed playground that features slides, swings and all-around family fun.
Take a three-part guided tour with a paleontologist that takes you through a cave, a dig site, and a work station. You will also learn about fossil formation and preservation and watch a demonstration on the proper way to excavate a fossil from a site.
Take a stroll through boardwalks that wind through natural areas shaded by centuries-old oak trees and paths that tell the stories of different dinosaurs.
They also have an over 7,000 square foot gift shop that offers prehistoric artifacts as well as toys, games, and geodes for all the Dino lovers in your family.
Feel like having a picnic, you can bring a cooler with your own healthy snacks and drinks, and you don’t need to leave Fido at home… Dinosaur World is pet-friendly and well-trained dogs on leashes are welcome and water stations are available throughout the property.
They also offer group rates that include special prices for birthday parties.
