What is there to do?

Welcome...to Dinosaur World!

If you are in Kentucky, you can have a family day out with a difference. In fact, you can have a family day out 75 million years in the past! Dinosaur World is FILLED with 150 life size dinosaurs that are located within 20 acres of natural setting, so you can explore on the paved walkways through the forests, looking for those different prehistoric species. Can you guess what you might come face to face with!

Located near Mammoth Cave National Park, Dinosaur World is great fun for the kids to explore, but it's also filled with other fun activities and attractions that will keep them entertained.

They can uncover the life sized dinosaur skeleton that lies under sand in the boneyard (they might be there a while - it's pretty HUGE!), or even search for authentic fossils in the Fossil Dig. What's really cool, is that any they find, they can keep and take home!

It's not just dinosaurs that reside in Dinosaur World. Those Ice Age creatures known as the Mammoths call the Mammoth Garden home, and it's the perfect place for kids to learn about these huge tusked creatures. 

Kids can enjoy more hands-on fun in the Touch & Tell area, where they can be brave and stick their hands inside a hole and try and guess which dinosaur it is, or they can enjoy an educational film on dinosaurs at the Movie Cave - certainly a unique setting for a film!

With picnic areas and a playground to top off the fun, Dinosaur World will certainly fill your day to the brim with Jurassic sized adventures - it's a ROARING time!
