Attention! Attention! Read all about it! The World of Dinosaurs, which stomped into the Laguna Hills Mall in Orange County last spring, is closing on Monday, May 31! After a year-long adventure of fun and exploration, it is time for the dinosaurs to pack up and head home. But until May 31, you can continue to take a step back in time, and bring your budding paleontologist to experience over 100 robotic and static dinosaurs.
Last spring, when my family and I visited the World of Dinosaurs, I thought that they might have a few rides and some games. It would make for a nice family outing and then we would head back home. Boy, was I wrong! Instead we spent over three hours at The World of Dinosaurs exploring America’s largest traveling dinosaur exhibition. Each prehistoric display places the dinosaurs as they been found around the world with detailed scientific information.
Outside of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, I think the World of Dinosaurs is one of the best dinosaur displays I have seen in recent years. It was very realistic and engaging for all ages.
The dinosaurs they have on display include:
- Tyrannosaurus Rex
The exhibition and activity area for children ages 2-12 has more than just dinosaurs. They also have dinosaur-themed bouncers.
A mini-golf course.
Gemstone and fossil panning.
Plus dinosaur rides, face painting, a maze and a dinosaur dig for the little ones.
