Visitor Tips and News About Dinosaur World
We were in Cave City to stay in the Wigwam Motel (I'm a sucker for road trip nostalgia) and we decided to stop by at Dinosaur World. When we got there, we were greeted at the entrance by several large dino statues. Sadly those were the only ones we saw, because once we entered into the gift shop and saw how much prices were to go through the actual park, we decided the few statues out front were enough for us. If we had a child with us, we might have been willing to pay the price, but we just couldn't justify it.[Danielle, 10/14/2011]
Although we felt like this was over-priced, our 7 year old son was in hog ... er... Dinosaur heaven! It was hot while we were there but the wooded area on the self-guided tour gave a nice, long break from the sun.
The fossil dig was a hoot. The kids really thought they were digging up some serious treasures! This unplanned stop was the highlight of our day today![Ann, 07/19/2010]
My family and I take many trips south to visit family in Alabama. Right off I-65 in Cave City, KY, you will see a giant T-rex on the side of the interstate. Dinosaur World won't take long. It has a trail that winds along the forest, showing various life-sized dinosaurs along the way. It has a dino dig for the kids as well as a playground.[Dana Sieben, 01/01/2006]
It's an outdoor museum of life sized prehistoric animals.[Scott, 10/25/2003]
The gift shop's leg entrance and other fixtures may look familiar to the well-traveled dino park fan. Dinosaur World is the sister attraction of the nearly identical Dinosaur World in Plant City, Florida. Watch for this franchise opening in a Tourism Mecca near you!
