Dinosaur World -- Where the dinosaurs still roam.[Elijah Light, 03/31/2016]
Ok, without kids not worth the price. With kids, well worth it! We did the Dino dig and my daughter read every sign for each Dino. Spurred very lively talks about the world of Dinos.[Billnbecca, 03/30/2014]
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]
