Kentucky offers a one-of-kind Jurassic Park for tiny palaeontologists and dinosaur lovers of all ages called Dinosaur World.
The recently renovated park was created by Swedish businessman Christer Svensson. He moved to Florida in the early 90s and visited the first Dinosaur World. Then, it included dinosaurs that were made by the park employees from fibreglass, concrete and steel.
Today, there are more than 150 different life-size models scattered around the 20-acre park. They were designed and strategically laid out based on how science assumed they lived millions of years ago, in herds, or in solitaire like the T-Rex. As guests hike through the park, there is an information plaque located near each dinosaur.
