Dinosaur World is located in Plant City, FL, and is just off I-4 between Orlando and Tampa.  This attraction features over 150 life-size dinosaurs!  There is a dinosaur museum, which is very educational on everything from dinosaur eggs to raptor claws.  There is a fossil dig and bone yard, where you can search for fossils in a real paleontological setting.  They have a life-size skeletal garden, gift shop, and picnic area.  Dinosaur World also features ‘caves,’ where you can picnic in a unique setting including a video theatre. Children will enjoy the playground area. This is a great, educational, affordable attraction where you can take the kids, or a group of children for a field trip. (Reservations required for group rates.)

Regular admission prices are $12.75 for adults,  $9.75 for children ages 3 to 12,  $10.75 for seniors over 60, friendly pets on leashes – free! And if it’s your child’s birthday (ages ages 3-12, proof required), they  get in for free! Military personnel also receive free admission with an active military ID and their dependents receive $1 off. Dinosaur World’s annual passes offer discounted prices as well as 50% off exhibit admission to Fantasy of Flight. This offer is good until December 31, 2010.  They also participate in the Orlando Smiles program.

So if you’re a dinosaur enthusiast or you just want to check out something different, Dinosaur World is worth the drive.
