Travel 90 Million Years Back in Time!
Just minutes from Manhattan, Field Station: Dinosaurs is a world-class family attraction that combines cutting-edge science with a Broadway producer’s flair to create a one-of-kind experience that’s thrilling, educational and fun.
Named “One of the World Best Spots for Dinosaur Lovers” by Fodor’s, the Field Station is trip back in time with over thirty realistic hand-sculpted dinosaurs brought to life by the brilliant engineering of the world’s leading roboticists and the imagination of our paleo-artists.
Over 30 live shows, games and activities daily connect the story of the dinosaurs to our world today, giving new relevance to their lives and power to the tales of their extinction.
The science and story of the dinosaurs is vividly presented in Bergen County’s beautiful Overpeck Park, on the banks of a scenic creek and surrounded by natural woods. Paleontologists have worked to ensure that the exhibit encompasses the latest theories and discoveries in the fields of paleontology, geology and environmental studies.
At the center of it all is the fun, the joy and the wonder of dinosaurs. Our expedition takes every family on an adventure – full of mystery, surprise and a sense of awe.
Included with Day Pass Admission
Original live shows, games, and activities bring the history of dinosaurs to life for families in an adventurous way – leaving a sense of mystery, surprise and awe. The Expedition Team performs live content – ranging from 8 to 20 minutes long – all day long. You’ll be introduced to scientific theories and discussions through experiments with puppets, fun-focused competition, crowd participation, and even original, live songs.
The key to a successful expedition is your Trail Map and Expedition Schedule – which describes these crowd favorite shows, games and activities. The number of scheduled performances and the selection of shows varies each day.
