Field Station: Dinosaurs is a prehistoric theme park with two locations in the United States. The park is intended for families with children from three to eleven years old. Both parks provide a walking tour with full-size, scientifically accurate animatronic dinosaurs and interactive displays, and live presentations that teach kids about dinosaurs in the context of the local ecology. Guy Gsell, a longtime dinosaur lover, serves as Executive Producer and Expedition Commander.
Snake Hill in Secaucus, New Jersey, hosted the first site on May 26, 2012. Field Station: Dinosaurs lost their lease on the land after four seasons to make way for a new Hudson County Schools of Technology facility. With record numbers, the Secaucus park closed on September 7, 2015, and started its quest for a new home. Derby, Kansas, and West Milford, New Jersey are two possible places.
Field Station: Dinosaurs relocated to Overpeck County Park in Bergen County, beside Teaneck Creek, in 2016. The dinosaurs are set against a stunning background of rich flora and natural surroundings.
In 2018, a new dinosaur was added to the park in New Jersey. Park visitors chose the Spinosaurus to replace the Argentinosaurus, which had died in a fiery death the previous season. The 90' Argentinosaurus was a giant animatronic dinosaur ever created when Field Station initially bought it: Dinosaurs.
The following are the New Jersey exhibitions:
Base Camp is the park's entrance point for all visitors. Visitors are given "credentials," a stamped passport when they visit and engage in the park's numerous activities, seminars, and events. The TriceraShops souvenir store, first aid and Expedition Central Command are all located in Base Camp.
The Amphitheater is a venue for outdoor performances. The 15-foot dinosaur puppet is used in numerous performances that take place throughout the day: The scientific approach is used in "Feeding Frenzy" to unravel the enigma of what the dinosaurs ate.
"Found in New Jersey" is a fossil presentation that delves into the Garden State's dinosaur heritage. Other performances at the Amphitheater include Field Station Challenge, Morning Briefing, Songs o' the Dinosaur Troubadour, and the Dinosaur Dance Party.
The Paleontologists' Laboratory and a dig site where children may dig for fossils are also part of the Quarry.
The 90-foot Argentinosaurus may be seen at the Riverview. They also meet Hadrosaurus, the official state dinosaur of New Jersey. In addition, season Pass and Commander's Passholders may relax in air-conditioned luxury and watch unique programs in the Yurt, which serves as the Commander's Tent.
Tents for Families
"Mesozoic Concentration" and "Raptor Feud," family games in which competitors answer questions about dinosaurs, geology, and paleontology, as well as Dinos-Origami and "What Color, is Your Dinosaurs?" a fun show for pre-readers, are all held on the Plateau.
Field Station: Dinosaurs is a world-class family attraction situated just minutes from Manhattan that integrates cutting-edge science with a Broadway producer's flair to produce an unforgettable, educational, and amusing experience.
The Field Station, named by Fodor's as "One of the World's Best Spots for Dinosaur Lovers," is a journey back in time with over thirty lifelike hand-sculpted dinosaurs brought to life by the creative engineering of the world's top roboticists and the creativity of our paleo-artists.
The pleasure, delight, and wonder of dinosaurs are at heart. Our trip takes each family on a mystery, surprise, and amazement-filled journey.
