We bought into the attraction's Groupon deal at Christmas, and basically planned a week vacation to NYC around taking him here. We checked the website to see when Field Station opened, and I called with a few last-minute questions. At the time of the date check and phone call, there was no indication the attraction was not open daily (it... More

We took my 3 year old son last weekend to this park for the first time and I have to say it far exceeded my expectations. I found the layout easy to handle, the dinosaurs looked and sounded great. My son was so excited and interested around every turn and corner for what was waiting next. There seems to be... More

Make sure to not believe all the hype on the advertising... no free parking, and all things are well above normal entertainment price levels. Nothing is one price... food is too expensive to buy, and do not think about leaving and coming back. Seen many of the same kind of displays in other situations, with more knowledgeable staff.

My six year old son really enjoyed the place, he was excited to see all the different dinosaurs and fun activities they had in the park. Would definitely go back to the park soon.

Dinosaur station is an attraction about 20 mins from NYC in Seacaus, NJ. It's definitely a must for dinosaur loving kids and therefore gears to younger kids. Our 11 year olds liked it but didn't love it. The dinosaurs look pretty real for the most part which the highlight of a visit here.

What to do on a Saturday with a 7 & 4 yr old in tow. Go to Secaucus,NJ & travel back in time 90 million years. Field station dinosaurs exceded by wildest expectations. Children just don't enter, they are credentialed in with a "passport" type document that they can have stamped at multiple learning venues & after 6 stamps, they... More

I have been to Field Station Dinosaurs twice with my children. Let me give you some pointers: 1. Buy your tickets ahead of time for a discount - the park is small and depending on the age of your kids and their level of interest in dinosaurs - you can be done in 2 - 3 hours. 2. The parking...

This is a fun and interesting place to bring your children and grandchildren. The dinosaur exhibits are nice but the concession stands and bathroom facilities are terrible. As with most attractions you have to exit through the gift shop. You have a couple of options here - get blindfolds for the kid, move quickly or have a big wallet. Every... More
