Dinosaur World is Expanding!Hello Tampa! Lisa here, after a great Thanksgiving weekend, to report a major update from one of our most ferocious partners!

Is anouncing a major expansion to open Fall 2011. This exciting addition started on November 11 and includes 12 acres of everything dinosaur! There will be a new building that will house a Prehistoric Museum, giftshop and officespace. They are going add more parking, bathrooms and picnic areas. There is even going to be a new dinsaur playground! (I wonder what the age limit to that is? I love the swings!) During this exciting expansion Dinosaur World will remain open!

During December Dinosaur World is helping out the kids of the area with a Toys For Tots donation drive. If you bring in a packaged new toy, you will get 1/2 off admission! Each person in your group will need to bring a toy so everyone can enjoy the discount! All the toys donated will go to the Marine Toys For Tots Foundation in Tampa. Some come enjoy some Tampa Bay Entertainment on Sunday December 5th (THIS SUNDAY), and Sunday December 12th.

Also going on in December is a season passes World Christmas Contest! All you have to do is send your favorite Dinosaur World photo to dinosaurworld@scrtc.com. Make sure to say that it's ok to use the photo in future publications, and please only enter once. Include your phone number and address in the email, and make the subject "christmas contest." The winners will be announced on Wednesday December 8th. So get out there and take some pictures!
