DINOSAUR WORLD

June 8, 2020

We know many of you are limiting travel during these uncertain times.  Although we continue to feature trips and places to visit, we are not encouraging you to visit them until it is safe.  We want to support Florida's attractions and businesses during this situation, and hope you will plan to visit them when things get better.  In the meantime, enjoy them virtually from the comfort of your home.

Our thanks to Greg May of Orlando for much of the information in this article.

The entire family will go "prehistoric" as you explore this most unique of Florida tourist attractions set in a "Jurassic Park" atmosphere!

Walk among 150 life-size dinosaur replicas including the notorious "T-Rex" as well as species you never knew existed.

This small Florida tourist attraction mixes entertainment with education.

The kids will most likely be talking about this one even after they've visited the other better known Central Florida tourist attractions. For some unknown reason, most kids are crazy about dinosaurs.

Maybe they know something we don't about these not obviously lovable creatures from the shadows of prehistory.

Dinosaur Walk is not the only attraction.

There is also the Boneyard where you can uncover a life-size dinosaur skeleton.

Nearby the Boneyard is the Fossil Dig where your family can play at being an archaeologist and their newest exhibit, Skeleton Garden with life-size dinosaur skeleton replicas.

Other features include the Movie Cave where you can learn about dinosaurs in a subterranean setting, a museum, gift shop and children's playground.

When lunch time comes around the entire family will enjoy snacking with the dinosaurs in the Picnic Area.  There is also a nice playground for the kids to enjoy.
