Because “Life, uh, finds a way,” Plant City’s Dinosaur World will reopen this week, making it one of the first Central Florida attractions to roar back to life amid the coronavirus pandemic.  

The theme park announced that it will officially reopen tomorrow. However, all hands-on activities will be closed, and only the dino walk and the indoor museum will be open. Since everything won’t be open admission is $10, instead of the usual $15 for adults. 

“We will have limited capacity inside the gift shop and inside the park to maintain social distancing,” said the park in a Facebook post. “We can't wait to see everyone again!”
