Glen Rose is about an hour from Dallas and is known as the Dino capital of Texas!
Even the local grocery store and motel had Dino signs..lol
From the time you walk in the doors of the 5,000 square foot gift shop till the time you leave you will see and experience so much about Dinosaurs!
note: I am not going to post that many pics from our visit because you have to visit
for yourself to see everything there is to see:)
Dinosaur World has over 150 LIFE SIZE dinosaurs to view and learn about!
Each creature has their own info stone that has their name and general info about each of them.
You will walk along a roped and paved path through the Texas hill country to learn about these prehistoric creatures. There so many different Dino's every where!
I still wonder what they were looking at :)
My kids had fun unearthing a life size dinosaur skeleton in the Boneyard.
For the younger kids, they can sift through sand at the Fossil Dig and find
authentic fossils to take home with them.
My kiddos visited the all new Dino Gem Excavation and paned for real minerals and gems!
That they got to KEEP!!
You will see MANY fossils and skeletons in the Prehistoric Museum.
There is also a HUGE play ground area for the little ones to play in!! There is great picnic area to have a lunch. There are no restaurants at Dino world so coolers are welcome! There are drink machines available. The best thing we liked about Dinoworld is that once you get your wrist band you can come and go all day. MY kids liked Dinoworld so much we went back later in the day for another tour:) We wanted to make sure we saw everything..lol My kids had different things they liked about our visit to Dino world. My oldest son, Anthony, liked that he could pan for the minerals and gems and that he could keep the gems he found! My daughter Jessica liked that there were so many Dino's! There were different ones around every corner. My youngest son, Andy, liked every Dino he saw. He said they looked like they were about to eat him..lol DinoWorld is so much fun! Its a great place for school trips, birthday parties or any special vacation!!
