Dinosaur World

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.

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.
