A Message from Guy Gsell

Heavy dinosaurs need heavy equipment! For weeks, we’ve been moving dirt, digging trenches, and rolling new trails. It’s been a ton of work but the park is really coming together. The transformation is amazing and we can’t wait to welcome you and your family to the Field Station this summer. It’s just going to take a little longer than we had hoped.

Our plan was to open this Saturday, but the construction project was substantial and had a lot of moving parts. We need another three days to get the dinosaurs back on their feet and ready to roar. We’re sorry for the delay – especially, if like me, you were planning to celebrate Fathers’ Day at the park, but this is the right decision for the safety of our guests and the quality of your experience.

I hope you’ll join us this summer for all the fun, all the music, and all the laughter at Field Station: Dinosaurs. We may have lost the first two days of our season, but we have still have almost 100 days of learning and adventure ahead of us!

See you out on the trails!

Guy Gsell, Executive Producer
