My husband and I took our three grandchildren, ages 8,7 and 3 here today. We spent about 4 hours and everone enjoyed the field stations and the dinos. The staff was very helpful. Since we spent 4 hours there it was a pretty good value for the money. We did bring our own lunch, snacks and drinks so that saved a bit on money. For the amount of people there the restrooms were kept relatively clean.

I begged my kids to go to Field Station: Dinosaurs with me and they both said, "no". I ended up meeting a friend there and we loved it. We are both 47, going on 12. I knew what to expect as I had read many reviews and also saw their website. There are 31 animatronic dinosaurs situated along a path through the park. We spent almost three hours there exploring and photographing the dinosaurs. Yes, they are a hokey and rubbery and loud, but if you like dinosaurs, or robotics ... it's a pretty cool place. There were a handful of shows going on and they seemed to be geared towards little children. I have to admit, we were the only adults there without children and the children we did see were probably all under 10 years old. A few of them were freaked out by the prehistoric monsters. We enjoyed seeing that.

The price is high considering we paid $25 each and also $10 to park. I've been to Dinosaur World near Tampa which has over 100 dinosaurs, and free parking. Of course, their dinosaurs don't wag their tails or clench their jaws and roar. The Tampa dinosaurs do look more real though. Field Station is not large but there is room to grow. It has a bit of a "temporary" feel to it as many of the stops along the way are portable trailers, including the bathrooms and the gift shop. Hopefully, they will expand and add even more exhibits. If your kids are into dinosaurs, and you can splurge for a day, take them to see Field Station: Dinosaurs. If you're trying to cut back, rent Jurassic Park for $3.99.

My family and were excited to come here after listening to commercials about these robotic Dinosaurs. after paying $101.65. For 3 adults and one child. let me tell you don't bother overpriced for what you actually get. It took 30minutes and we almost went around the park twice!!! Pretty Cheesy.

Field Station Dinosaurs is a fun attraction for kids ages 4-8. It was great to see many different Life size dinosaurs as you walk through the park. The shows that are put on are informative and fun. The kids get a stamp in a passport for the different events that are there. Buy tickets ahead of time to save a few dollars.

Yesterday our family, 3 adults, 2 children visited this attraction for the first time....It is a recent addition to area attractions and well worth the time and money to visit.....Shortly after we arrived it started pouring and the staff quickly passed out ponchos which saved the day! Our little ones were awed and the adults amazed...The Dinosaurs are truly life like from size, to movement to sound......plenty of opportunity to take photos by them.....lots of fun, educational things for the children to do......set in a natural site that is wonderful.....I think this would be an excellent class trip as well as a family destination.......also thought it would be a great halloween place if done up for that holiday.....I would recommend anyone to go.....it is a fun day...even in the rain.
