We had the great privilege of visiting Dinosaur World in Plant City, FL recently with free passes. It was quite the exciting experience for my little ones who arrived with wide-eyes and full of anticipation getting to see over 150 life-sized dinosaurs!
The dinosaurs here are very impressive, especially in the newer section they just built this past year. The natural environment they are set in as you walk along the path makes it so realistic. Check out this ferocious looking bunch! For those of you who are interested in visiting, Dinosaur World has three great locations nationwide:
You can find out more information at www.dinosaurworld.com.
We began our journey walking out into a large open area with giant dinos and beautiful landscaping. To my little one’s delight, we came upon a Preschool/Toddler playland area almost immediately – full of brightly colored dinosaur-themed slides and ride on equipment. They even had toddler safe swings for my 18 month old to enjoy, although my five year old wanted to swing on them too. Lol.
Here you can see a larger playground with dinosaur themed climbing equipment designed for older children in the elementary age group. You won’t run short of great picture opps at Dinosaur World! Make sure to bring the camera! 🙂
This one reminds my teen son of that scene in Jurassic Park with this dino. He enjoyed reading all the name plates and searching for interesting details he may not have known.
Plenty of spaces available under the shelter of this cute little picnic area to bring your own lunch or snacks and take a short break. Something that may be a big hit with the elementary aged kids is the giant puzzle you can take apart and put together located near the picnic area. For my homeschool and education-minded readers, the little details included on the information plates in front of every dino are very helpful for inquiring minds.
Here is a fun little activity you can do with your child called Touch and Tell which stretches along a portion of the park after the picnic area. It has several fun lift the flap types of games to play and even a touch and guess game to figure out what is hiding in the hole behind the wood. Here is a peek at one my daughter was playing.
Dinosaur World is also one of the only pet friendly parks in Florida. They have drinking stations in the park just for your pet! How cool and thoughtful!
This is the BoneYard which is a super big sand pit with a huge dinosaur skeleton for the little ones to enjoy uncovering with all the shovels and brushes Dinosaur World makes available for them to use while playing here. There are bleacher seats available to one side for the parents to sit and rest on while the little ones play. The sand pit is in a covered shelter so the sun doesn’t beat down on them while they are playing.
The park has so many great activities that offer hours of entertainment for the whole family. We highly recommend a walk through the museum near the exit before you leave – to experience their new live animatronic dinosaurs! Even my 18 month old loved them and wasn’t afraid! That was surprising! Lol.
It was impressive to see all the workmanship and detail that went into the making of these dinosaur statues. My family is really into drama and so in conclusion, my husband decided to help set the mood for your future visit to Dinosaur World.
