We took our two nieces and nephew ages 7, 6 and 3 to Field Station Dinosaurs last Fall and we all had a great time. If you haven't seen the You Tube video of the little boy running down the walkway yelling "run, run, Dinosaurs"; you must search it out and watch, it's hysterical. Our little 3 year old was... More

My 6 year old grandson wanted to return for a visit. We went last year as well. He still loved it. The extra $5 for the 3 D movie is worth it. The only negative was the food. It was really terrible.

...Sat July 7th, 2014: I paid for parking and the admission fee's for my grandsons and myself. The day when great. All exhibits, the art shows, the hand & the full scale (human) T-Rex at Field Station, blew our minds. Justin, who is 3 and a half, was ominous at seeing how large the dinosuar were at the time living... More

My daughter is a huge fan of dinosaurs. When Field Station Dinosaurs first opened, we were initially excited, but taken back by the $25 admission fee, so we put off going. Recently I received an ad for discounted admission ($14 per person). So, we gave it a try. When you first enter the park, they give you a trail map... More

Just came back today from Field Station Dinosaurs with my daughter and her entire preschool. First be prepared to walk alot. Everything is spaced out and its a bit of a journey for small kids 4-5 year olds. The display of dinosaurs is nice and there are a lot to see. With that said, its really nothing special. $10 to...

We had comped tickets to the park which made it a fun 1.5 hours. If we paid full price I don't think we would have had the same impression. Very little interaction with the dinosaurs, the staff is doing the best they can with very limited resources. A lot of the more interesting attractions required additional fees which we were... More

We went over opening weekend after purchasing Living Social deals (14.00 per ticket). After reading such negative reviews, we were very wary about how the place would be. I'm so glad we went and didn't let the reviews deter us from going. My son is 5 and loves dinosaurs. He loved it here!! My husband and I think it the... More

Took our 11 year old and he was bored the entire time. Visited every display and went to 2 shows but he just wasn't impressed. As an adult I admired the way the park was laid out. Each dinosaur had its own particular area usually separate from others. As you take the curvy paths the foliage and cliffs in the... More

we went looking to entertain my 7 year old and her friend for a couple of hours. mission accomplished, they found it fun, and we thought it was slightly hokey, but it is what it is. it's quite convenient (we live about 30 mins away), and on a nice day it's nice to be outside, walking the paths. we also...
