Other dinosaur mite attractions

3) Dino Digs

At the Orlando Science Center, guests can examine mammalian and reptile fossils that many have found from the state of Florida. Guests become paleontologists and find dinosaur bones in the Jurassic Ridge Dig Pigs (which are often cleaned up). Tickets are $ 21 for adults, $ 19 for students, and $ 15 for children ages two to 17.

4) DinoLand USA
Ride dinosaurs in Disney’s animal kingdom. It’s a roller coaster ride in which travelers save a dinosaur before a meteor hits the earth. In the same area, you can spot a 50-foot Brachiosaurus skeleton or eat at two of the dino-themed restaurants. Entry is included with your entry to the park.

5) Universal Orlando Resort

  • The resort is home to the Jurassic Park movie franchise with rides, science center, and dining options. There is a new ride scheduled to open in summer 2021. Entry is included in the theme park tickets.
  • Jurassic World Kids’ Suites are themed rooms at the Lowes Royal Pacific Resort where children can sleep among the dinosaurs. The beds even look like the “gyrosphere” in the blockbuster movie.
