The dinosaurs come alive at night! The thrill of adventure awaits as you set out on the ultimate cretaceous campout. Before you head to sleep under the stars, explore the lantern-lit dinosaur trails, participate in games and activities, enjoy popcorn before bed, and other surprises along the way. You’ll start the next day with a light breakfast at 6:15am.
