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.

Very close to NYC, in NJ, this place is a must visit if you have kid who loves Dinosaurs! We had kept this visit to Dino Park (code named DP) as a surprise for our 9 year old and the SMILE on his face when we reached there was priceless! He really enjoyed here and ran around from one dino... More

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... 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
