We headed out the wilds of Secaucus, New Jersey last week to find some dinosaurs. Field Station: Dinosaurs was our destination and we had a trio of dinosaur fans with us.
Sadly, this will be the park’s final season in Secaucus and the last chance for fans to experience all their favorite dinosaurs in their current setting before they move on to their next home.
Check out our video from Field Station: Dinosaurs
Highlights for 2015 include the live show, “Talking with Dinosaurs.” Kids will roar, chirp and rattle as the Dinosaur Troubadour conducts the world’s first ever dinosaur Glee Club and learn what kind of sounds scientists believe dinosaurs really made.
The new 3D movie, “Walking with Dinosaurs: Prehistoric Planet,” narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, features photo-realistic dinosaurs set in live action landscapes in an epic prehistoric adventure.
Paleontologists’ Laboratory is the Field Station’s fun new hands-on activity where junior dinosaur hunters can dig for bones and learn the science of fossils. Visitors will also get to meet the Field Station’s new 15’ Tyrannosaurus rex which will be featured in the park’s live shows at the Field Station’s Goya Amphitheater.
Additionally, prices for Day Passes to Field Station: Dinosaurs have been lowered to only $15.00, and a new “anytime” ticket can be used any day during the 2015 season. The Town of Secaucus has lowered the environmental fee collected for parking to only $5.00 per vehicle.
Hudson County is repurposing the land on which Field Station: Dinosaurs currently resides, making it necessary for the dinosaurs to find a new home starting in 2016.
Field Station: Dinosaurs is located at 1 Dinosaur Way (off Exit 15X of the New Jersey Turnpike) at Laurel Hill Park in Secaucus, NJ. If you are using a GPS, input 1000 New County Road, Secaucus, NJ 07094.
Admission to the park starts at $15.00 (when purchased prior to July 4) and tickets are available online at www.FieldStationDinosaurs.com and by phone at 855-999-9010.
The park is open from 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM from through June 28 on Saturdays, Sundays and Memorial Day and from June 30 through September 6 from Tuesdays through Sundays and Labor Day. Season passes and add-ons for access to all of the park’s programming and activities are also available.
Field Station offers over thirty life-sized, realistic dinosaurs come to life thanks to the brilliant engineering of the world’s leading roboticists and the imagination of our artists.
Scientists from the New Jersey State Museum have worked to ensure that the exhibition encompasses the latest theories and discoveries in the fields of paleontology, geology, and environmental studies but at the center of it all is the fun, the joy and the wonder of dinosaurs.
