The family and I returned again to New Jersey’s Field Station Dinosaurs. We were invited on Blogger Day to take a look at the latest attractions and improvements made to this life size dinosaur park. Field Station Dinosaurs is 9 minutes outside of Manhattan, but 90 million years back in time. When you arrive you’ll get your credentials that allow to go an expedition featuring 32 life sized animatronic dinosaurs. They move their tails, heads, mouths, but don’t walk around. ( I just want to make that clear.) They also roar and make sounds. The largest dinosaur is a ninety foot long Argentinosaurus. . It is the largest animatronic dinosaur ever made.
One of the improvements that I noticed right away was the walking paths. They seemed small last year. This year they are wider and smoother. It makes it easier to get around with a stroller. They also had more food selections than the last time as well. While it’s still basically, hot dogs and burgers I loved that there was a veggie burger option! You can also bring in your food which helps families if you are on a budget. I love that fact. You can read my original review HERE.
In addition to the animatronic dinosaurs, there are baby dinosaur puppets and a 15 foot T-Rex puppet! Your expedition includes shows and activities that take lace throughout the day all over the park. We sat in on Dino Whodunit. Not only do the children get entertained, but they learn interesting facts about dinosaurs while having fun. The latest added attraction is is Dinosaurs Alive! It’s a 3D dinosaur movie shown at different times during the day in the Movie Tent. We sat upfront and this was by far one of the best 3D movies I’ve seen. My boys kept reaching for the screen it was hysterical!
Other activities include a fossil dig, story time, T-Rex games, a dinosaur dance party and more. Oh and you can also host a birthday party there as well. Different events take place throughout the season so be sure to visit http://fieldstationdinosaurs.com/ and see what’s happening. Plus if you buy tickets online you’ll save! Your little dinosaur fans will thank you for it!
