Locations include [[Plant City, Florida]], [[Glen Rose, Texas]], and [[Cave City, Kentucky]]. The parks each feature over 150 life-size dinosaur sculptures<ref name=Stone>[http://www.federaltimes.com/article/20100810/TRAVEL01/8100305/ \"Orlando: Magic, thrill rides and gators\"], Adam Stone, ''[[Federal Times]]'', August 10, 2010</ref> created by Christer Svensson. The Florida location opened in November 1998, the Kentucky location five years after and Texas location followed five years after that. The parks are family friendly, including many activities for small children, playgrounds and picnic areas (food is not served on the property so guests are encouraged to picnic).\n\nThough each park has a unique setting by virtue of its geography, the common format is that life-size dinosaur statues are placed among native vegetation or water features to simulate animals in a wild environment. Plant species that date from the time of the dinosaurs can be found on the grounds and identified with small signs as appropriate. There are frequent break and shade areas around the park and several picnic and play areas. One popular attraction is the \"Fossil Dig\" where kids can dig at a sand table for real fossils and take home their favorite three in a small plastic bag.\n\nThe dinosaur sculptures themselves are made from a base of carved [[polystyrene]] foam,  covered with [[fiberglass]], then putty which is textured as the skin and painted with care. Each dinosaur is made on location at the park. About three new dinosaur replicas are added each year, with other older statues getting much needed makeovers in between.<ref name=USAToday>[http://www.usatoday.com/travel/destinations/2005-08-29-dinosaur-world_x.htm \"Tampa's roadside dinosaur attraction is thriving\"] ''[[USA Today]]'', August 29, 2005</ref> Visitors tour Dinosaur World on a boardwalk that takes them past ''[[Stegosaurus]]'', ''[[Brontosaurus]]'', ''[[Tyrannosaurus rex]]'' and other popular dinosaurs set among natural marshes with [[cypress]] and [[gum tree]]s.<ref name=Jones>\"Dinosaur World visitors get life-size glimpse of the past,\" Michelle Jones, January 15, 1999, ''[[St. Petersburg Times]]''.</ref>\n\n==Activities==\n(FKT indicates park location for specific activities; F - Florida, K - Kentucky, T - Texas)\n\n*Dinosaur Walk is the outdoor trail with life-size dinosaurs and explanatory signs [FKT]\n*Fossil Dig where children can dig for fossils and take home their favorite three [FKT]<ref>{{cite web|url=http://dinosaurworld.com/florida/fossil-dig/|title=Fossil Dig - Florida|publisher=|accessdate=October 16, 2016}}</ref>\n*Dino Gem Excavation is a mining sluice where you can pan for real minerals and gemstones [FKT]<ref>{{cite web|url=http://dinosaurworld.com/florida/dino-gem-excavation/|title=Dino Gem Excavation - Florida|publisher=|accessdate=October 16, 2016}}</ref>\n*Geode Cracker where you can purchase a whole geode and crack it open [FT]<ref>{{cite web|url=http://dinosaurworld.com/florida/geode-cracker/|title=Geode Cracker - Florida|publisher=|accessdate=October 16, 2016}}</ref>\n*Exploration Cave Show and Triviasaurus Rex Game Show are interactive shows [F]<ref>{{cite web|url=http://dinosaurworld.com/florida/interactive-shows/|title=Interactive Shows - Florida|publisher=|accessdate=October 16, 2016}}</ref>\n*Museum with real and cast fossils [FKT]<ref name=\"dinosaurworld.com\">{{cite web|url=http://dinosaurworld.com/florida/museums-animatronics/|title=Museums & Animatronics - Florida|publisher=|accessdate=October 16, 2016}}</ref>\n*Animatronic Dinosaurs Display [FT]<ref name=\"dinosaurworld.com\"/>\n*Mammoths exhibit [FK]<ref>{{cite web|url=http://dinosaurworld.com/florida/mammoths-giants-of-the-ice-age/|title=Mammoths: Giants of the Ice Age - Florida|publisher=|accessdate=October 16, 2016}}</ref>\n*Boneyard where you can uncover a 27 ft skeleton from under the sand [FKT]<ref name=\"dinosaurworld.com1\">{{cite web|url=http://dinosaurworld.com/florida/other-activities/|title=Other Activities - Florida|publisher=|accessdate=October 16, 2016}}</ref> \n*Touch and Tell is an activity where you stick your hand inside a hole and try to guess the dinosaur without sight [FK]<ref name=\"dinosaurworld.com1\"/>\n*Skeleton Garden includes life-size skeleton model dinosaurs and a paleontological field work sight [F; KT have skeleton models, but not a Skeleton Garden like F]<ref name=\"dinosaurworld.com1\"/>\n*Playground and picnic area [FKT]\n*Movie Cave showing a selection of dinosaur videos also available in the gift shop.

I've seen more realistic looking dinosaurs at mini-golf courses. The fossil exhibit was disappointing at best. On the plus side, I did get to see a giant generic-lizard-like creature fighting a mutant of some sort. \n\nI would say you're better off going to a Natural History Museum, but Florida doesn't have a single one, which reflects the weight this state puts on science.",
