AAA Editor Notes
Dinosaur World, 5145 Harvey Tew Rd., features more than 200 life-size dinosaur models in an outdoor setting. Uncover a life-size dinosaur replica in the boneyard, watch educational films in a cave and stroll through a garden filled with man-made dinosaur skeletons. In the Prehistoric Museum, inspect such authentic fossils as dinosaur bones and teeth found around the world, and gaze at five animatronic dinosaurs, including a pterodactyl, triceratops and a T-rex. A woolly mammoth exhibit, a geode excavation site and a cave show also are featured. Children may cavort on two playgrounds and play archeologist in a fossil dig; they can take home several real fossils, which may include shark teeth and dinosaur bone fragments.
Pets on leash are allowed. Picnicking is permitted. Time: Allow 1 hour, 30 minutes minimum.
