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...

My boys (9 & 6 at the time) and I went to this park when it first opened. Since it's conveniently in town and I had a discount coupon for it, I decided it was worth a try. The animatronics and audio are amazing and very life-like. Unfortunately, because the park was still somewhat new, they didn't have all the... More

Took our 3 & 6 year old grandchildren and we all had a great time. Did not know what to expect so there were no let-downs. Bought reduced price tickets on Goldstar so thought the entry price was fair but $10 for parking steep. Went first weekend in Nov so not crowded or hot. Kids thought dinosaurs were very life... More

My grandson has been wanting to go since it opened in 2012, but at $40 a person I just couldn't justify it. From now until the end of October on Friday & Saturday nights, they are doing Dinosaures after Dark. It's from 7 to 9 pm. I got an email from a members only group for 1/2 price tickets ($20)... More

While the size of the dinosaur models is in itself educational, the rest of the "park" is totally lacking. From the dusty parking lot to the makeshift play stations, rude staff, and the other attractions are rather pathetic. A visitor is left with the impression that the dinosaurs were so costly that the remaining programs and shows were created with... More

We took a trip to Field Station Dinosaur with our Grandson. The drive was surprisingly pleasant and easy. We arrived shortly after it opened and were the third vehicle in the parking lot. We had accessed our tickets on line and they were cheaper than if we had purchased them on site. The staff was friendly and helpful to everyone.... More

It was a fun place with multiple activities, It was a unique and a fun experience for kids. Would be much better if kids are allowed to touch and feel the dinosaurs

We have visited Field Station Dinosaur for the last two years on my 7 year old son's birthday. He and his cousins always have a blast there.

Kids 8 and under will have a ball roaming around the animatronic dinosaurs at Field Station Dinosaurs. It's easy for little kids to overlook the shabby grounds and economical displays and the Dinosaur Dance Party and puppet shows are fun for them. Sadly, Field Station Dinosaurs doesn't succeed in providing a compelling educational experience. The dinosaur models are far from... More

What an exciting adventure for our 4 and 6 year old grandchildren! The 30 plus animatronic life- size dinosaurs were around every corner and blended well with the trees and bushes, and they were amazing! Their heavy breathing, roars, and movements left our grandchildren in awe! The younger one kept the map open the whole time while we followed the... More
