My husband and I drove to this attraction... 5 children and 2 parents on a Saturday afternoon. We arrived to be charged a Secaucus environmental fee of $10 for parking. It was explained to me that it was because we didn't use mass transit. We spent over $100 for tickets for 7. We drove a car with every single seat... More

I was first here 2 years ago and this was my second time back. The park was very empty which was nice. I'm not sure if it was empty because the theme has run it's course or because it was opening day of the NFL season. Either way my 4 year old really liked the dinosaurs, although a bit scared... More

This is a must visit park if you have kids who love dinosaurs,the place is small and takes less than an hour to walk it through, but they have activities and interaction tents for small kids, the exhibits are amazing, life size dinosaurs, and the animatronics are cool, a few didn't work, but the ones that did made it worth...

Just visited for the first time last week. It is expensive especially is you have a larger family but if I remember correctly it was much more expensive last year after it first opened which is why we did not go sooner. If you buy your tickets online in advance, you can save a few bucks... Also look for promos/coupons... More

We stop to take a look at this attraction. From the outside it looked good, attractive, and intriguing. But if you want to know how it is on the inside, you will have to pay $25 each, with $2 off for the kid. Parking is an additional $10. You go look if you want.

My cousins loved this! They participated in group activities, found tiny fossils in sand, schooled my on my dinosaur pronunciation and went crazy in the gift shop. They have a nice area to picnic and everyone who works there is so polite and patient. It was a great day!

There are many good aspects of this park, but it could use some work. Definitely a place for families with younger children. There are a few small spots around the park for the kids to stop at and play. The passport given to the children to get stamped around the park is very cute and exciting. I would say they... More

This is a good attraction for children up to 8 years old or so. The animatronic dinosaurs were fun to look at even though my three year old grandson was a little nervous at first, thinking they might be real. The actors and docents were enthusiastic and we especially enjoyed the T. rex show. There were nice walking trails and... More

While the tickets are a little pricey, the animatronic dinosaurs will impress the small kiddos immensely. While I was there with my 11-yr old daughter, I watched an adorable scene of a young boy not willing to get too close to a T-Rex dinosaur even though Mom and Dad were explaining to the kid it was just like a model....

I have a family of 4. One of 3 years old and an infant. We found that this exhibit was grossly overpriced for what it is. $25 for adults is a complete rip off. Then $10 for parking is obscene. My toddler didn't even enjoy it because he was scared half of the time. The exhibits weren't very impressive nor... More
