Florida = We are open every day of the year from 9 - 5 (that goes to 9-6 in the summer).

New juvenile dinosaurs have come home to Dinosaur World in Plant City just in time for the holidays. The Chasmasaurus family has grown by adding 3 babies and 2 juveniles. The Styracasaurus family has also grown with twins, both babies and juveniles. These young dinosaurs join other members of their family including adults. It is this family type display that makes the exhibits more impressive. The dinosaurs were made on site by artists employed by the museum and based on scientific research. Dinosaur World is continuing to grow, adding new exhibits yearly. These new dinosaurs were brought out in time for Christmas to enjoy time with visiting families for the holidays.

Indoor fossil dig

We just got in a great new indoor fossil dig for Kentucky. It gets a lot colder here in the winter than it does in Texas or Florida. So, we do an indoor fossil dig in the winter for Kentucky. It's now a nice, big, prehistoric looking crate full of sand and loaded with fossils. This is still free for ages 3-12 with paid park admission. And you still get to take home 3 of your favorite fossils.

we're growing again

If you come to the Kentucky location and notice some changes in the giftshop, don't worry becuase we're growing again! We're getting ready for a whole bunch of new items for our giftshop. We have a divider up over a portion of the store, but no worries becuase we still have like 3,000 square feet of really cool dinosaur stuff for you. I'll keep you posted on when the new items get here.

Thanks Grandparents!

Thanks to all the grandparents that came out the last two weekends with the grandkids! We celebrated family time with grandparents weekends. We'll do this again soon. In the meantime, get out and enjoy the outdoors with your family! Remember, Dinosaur World is open every day year around (except Christmas Day and Thanksgiving Day in Texas and Kentucky). So, if you need an activity with the family, we'd love to see you!

I'm Back!

Ok, I'll admit that I haven't really been on vacation since my last post. But, I have been catching up from vacaton since my last post. There's a saying, "There's no such thing as time off, just time rescheduled." But at leat it's fun. How many other people can say they work with over 150 life size dinosaurs?

Have you brought your dog to Dinosaur World yet? What are you waiting for? If you bring your dog in November, you get $2 off admission!

Grandparents, bring your grandkids this coming Sunday - November 15th and they can get in free! (up to 4 kids). We were thinking that November means family and so we thought we'd help with some family time.
