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... More

Sure, it was raining the day we visited Field Station: Dinosaurs. Umbrellas and plastic ponchos cured that aliment and onto the path to visit different the "life size" dinosaurs from our past in a great new environment in New Jersey. Our 9 year old dinosaur lover thought it was a great setup of all kinds of different dinosaurs from different... More

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

This park was a great treat for my boyfriend and I. We had a good time and I enjoyed every minute of it. However, I'm trying to write my review based on the experience it would be for a family. It seemed very over priced if you want to go there with a group of children. It didn't take us... More

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.
