Fall Break travel opportunities: Dinosaur World
Dinosaurs may have gone extinct around 65 million years ago, but Dinosaur World in Cave City, Ky. has kept them alive for tourists to rediscover.
“The reason to visit Dinosaur World is two-fold: fun and education,” said Park Director Chris Randall.
The park offers visitors the chance to see and touch 150 life-size dinosaurs along with various shows, exhibits, an interactive bone yard and museum, according to the Dinosaur World website. One of the exhibits, a Dino Gem Excavation, allows visitors to buy a bag and pan for gems and minerals over a sluice, a gate that controls the flow of water.
Although food can’t be purchased in the park, visitors can pack a picnic lunch and check out the dinosaurs roaming the picnic area.
Dinosaur World is about one hour and 45 minutes from Belmont. The daily rate for the attraction’s general admission is $12.75 plus tax for adults, and the park is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
