New Attractions Come to Dinosaur World
CAVE CITY, Ky. (Nov. 2, 2006) - A life-sized Triceratops now guards the entrance to the Dinosaur Walk at Dinosaur World in Cave City. Triceratops have long been a favorite among the prehistoric giants and Dinosaur World is proud to showcase this new exhibit. The display is made primarily of fiberglass with stunning craftsmanship from Polish artist Andrzej Rejmer.
The skull of a Tyrannosaurus Rex is also a new addition to Dinosaur World. A 40-foot T-Rex greets travelers along Interstate 65 at the border to the park. A replica of this skull is now exhibited inside the park boundaries for a more close-up look at the King of Dinosaurs. For those who just can’t get enough of the Tyrant King, a life-sized replica also awaits along the Dinosaur Walk.
Look for new hints of the skeletons now on display while traveling KY 70 past the entrance of Dinosaur World. Improvements have been made to the already impressive park entrance offering clues to the new skeleton exhibits.
"Visitors to Dinosaur World will enjoy new sights throughout the park in 2007 as we continue to grow," said Park Director Nicole Randall. "Our attention to detail is one of the many aspects that make our outdoor museum so impressive."
Dinosaur World is an outdoor dinosaur museum with more than 100 life-sized dinosaurs. Other park exhibits include a Fossil Dig where visitors sift through sand in search of authentic fossils to take home, an indoor Prehistoric Museum, Movie Cave, picnic areas, playground, and much more.
