Hugely disappointed in this place. For what you pay to go here, it's WAY overpriced. First, the town of Secaucus charges you $10 to park in the lot. It's then $25 for adult admission and $20 for children. I wouldn't have minded paying this for a better place. Here's what I didn't like:
1. Even though the dinosaurs themselves are pretty neat, half of them barely move at all and are nothing to write home about.
2. The layout is not very extensive and you can see all of the dinosaurs in a half-hour or 40 minutes at most.
3. Very lame food choices.
4. Bathrooms are disgusting.
5. Most of the "shows" are weak and not very exciting.
6. At most points, the trail is quite narrow so you inevitably encounter people and camp kids standing across the width of it just blocking anybody wanting to get through (especially fun with a stroller!).
7. In order to make it look like a paleontologist outpost and dig site, they had little tents set up everywhere to serve as filler. "Ooooh, look kids, another 2-person Coleman tent!"
8. You have to walk through the cramped gift shop and navigate around a horde of adults and kids to get out of the place.
I'm a science teacher and love this stuff, but I can't recommend Field Station: Dinosaurs. It's just a notch above a roadside attraction and is not worth the money. You're better off going for a free hike on a nearby local trail and observing real wildlife. (They were pushing season passes there. Why would you need to go to this place more than once?!)
