ROAR - that could be the sound of a T-Rex right next to you! At Dinosaur World, the whole family can go back in time to the prehistoric era of those mighty creatures: the dinosaurs!
Dinosaur World is a super fun outdoor museum in Glen Rose where kids can come face to face with some of their favourite creatures of the past. Located near Dinosaur Valley State Park, where are over 150 life size dinosaurs to see!
Dinosaur World is 20 acres of outdoor fun, with so much more than just dinosaur encounters - but they are certainly a highlight! The models are set in a natural environment, with lush garden settings and paved walkways so you can easily encounter these amazing creatures. There are diverse and unusual species, as well as your favorites, so keep an eye out for them all!
In addition to these HUGE creatures, Dinosaur World also has a host of other activities that you can enjoy. Kids can try and find their own dinosaurs with a fossil dig, and try their luck at Dino Gem Excavation.
Geode Cracker is a fun and exciting way to see what can be found beneath plain looking rocks, and the prehistoric museum is an indoor experience where the family can see cast AND real prehistoric fossils! There is information lining the walls too, so kids can find all the answers to the questions that they might have!
Don't miss the 27-ft skeleton that is lying underneath the boneyard too. It may be covered in sand, but that doesn't stop it being HUGE!
So why not travel back in time for your next family day out, and have a Texas sized experience in Dinosaur World - where the exhibits are larger than life! ROAR!
