Dinosaur World

Go with dino loving kids! It's a lot of outside walking/playing, so Fall or Spring would be the best time to visit. You can bring in a cooler for lunches. All attractions are kid friendly. Lots of photo ops. Huge gift shop.

Meandering our way down the curvy Park Road 59, we were surprised to drive up on this attraction. This is a great place tucked away past the Creation Museum and just before the entrance to Dinosaur Valley State Park. I had no idea it was there or I would've made a point to take my kids before they went off to college.

There are over 100 dinosaur statues scattered along the trail. Halfway down the trail is a pond full of hungry Koi. A fish food vending machine is provided there.

Although the trail was a bit hot in the Texas summertime, there is plenty of air conditioning in the tiny museum and the gift shop. There is a picnic area, a fossil dig area and a play ground for the kiddos.

I enjoyed it very much. It was a nice and relaxing stroll through the Jurassic.
