Dinosaur World - The Dainty Squid

Dinosaur World

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

One of the places in Cave City I really, really wanted to visit was Dinosaur World. I LOVE giant roadside dinosaurs and with one beckoning me from the side of the highway I couldn't not go. Dinosaur World boasts over 150 life size dinosaurs on 20 acres of property. This place is insanely awesome. The dinosaurs are all tucked away in the woods along both sides of a beautiful little path the winds around the property. I took a total of one zillion photos, or something close to that...
Doesn't it look incredible!? One of the reviews on the Roadside America app complained of the price, saying it wasn't worth it for adults but I have to disagree on that one. At least five times while we were walking around I exclaimed "this place is soooo cool!" Easily the best dinosaur attraction I have ever been to. Definitely, definitely, definitely worth a stop if you're ever anywhere near by!

Oh, and Jeff got eaten by a dinosaur. No big deal.
As I was reading over this post before hitting publish I realized it really sounded like a sponsored post, but it is hilariously not. I literally am just that excited about this place. Although, Dinosaur World, if you wanna hook a girl up with passes or something I wouldn't complain! Hah!

  9. I've been wanting to go here!! I wanted to stop at the one in Florida on my way to Miami, but my friend was determined to get home. Is this the one in Kentucky? I'll have to tell Shawn to add it to the list of stops on our road trip we're planning!

  11. Haha I love the last picture! I've been in a Dino mood since I rewarched Jurassic Park the other day. Amazing Dino movie!!

  12. Haha I could tell it was just excitement. We had a dinosaur park not far from here which was similar to that but it was getting pretty old and not too well kept, I think it may have closed down but it was a great place, I would like to go see it, even if it is closed, so long as the dinosaurs were still hanging around - imagine an abandoned dinosaur park!!

  17. I never knew this place existed!!! My 11 year old, Jurassic Park loving self is telling me to go there now! I used to want to be a paleontologist. I even helped clean dinosaur bones at the University of Kansas one summer and had this weird khaki outfit I would wear (my uniform:). Thanks for sharing this and here's a link to a picture of me during this phase:) http://thistooisfoundhere.blogspot.com/2013/04/behind-curtain.html

    Hope you're having a great day!

  18. Oh my gosh I did not know there were Dinosaur Worlds besides here in FL! I live about 15 mins from the one here and have been there 3 or 4 times. I love it so much! The KY one looks way better though, ours has quite a few dinos chillin on mulch and it looks so out of place. I love that they're actually in the woods/bushes there! Anyway, glad you enjoyed it and I am happy I'm not the only one that loves Dinosaur World :)
