Dinosaurs Just Got Scarier

Join us on Fridays and Saturdays at

Dinosaurs After Dark

Dinosaurs After Dark is a fun, mysterious expedition into a shadowy, prehistoric world. But things get a little scary when the lights go out. That’s when it’s discovered there’s a vicious T-Rex on the loose! Fearless Dinosaur Wranglers will lead a Tyrannosaurus Hunt along the Field Station’s darkened trails with a stop at every dinosaur and a few surprises along the way.

Starting at 7:00pm on Fridays and Saturdays, guests can enjoy Dinosaurs After Dark, which returns with two new live shows including “Dinosaurs Din-o-mite!” – a surprising look at dinosaur discoveries worldwide. Guests will be able to explore lit trails, all while watching out for the hungry T-Rex that is on the loose in the woods! It’s a spooky, fun-filled night of songs, shows, games and s’mores around the campfire.

The Dinosaur Safari

There’s a T-Rex on the loose and the Field Station staff needs help! Families get a spooky tour of the park as they track down a missing Dinosaur. There are plenty of clues – and laughs! – along the way but look out, that might be a hungry T-Rex lurking in the shadows.

The T-Rex Profiler

To catch a T-Rex you have to think like a T-Rex! The Field Station’s resident Profiler takes you into the mind of a vicious meat eater. Families experience the world like a T-Rex would in this funny exploration of our five senses with lots of audience participation and hands-on fun.

Mesozoic Midway

Hosted by the Field Station’s Director of Safety and Security, the Midway is basic training for all intrepid dinosaur hunters. Learn from the greatest self-defense teachers of all time – Triceratops, Ankylosaurus and Dilophosaurus! And, of course, it wouldn’t be a midway without prizes. Step right up and win yourself a dinosaur!

Cretaceous Costume Party

Dinosaurs meet Halloween! What could be cooler? Mummies, vampires and skeletons shake it up and boogie down in this hilarious musical show. Paleontologists use the scientific method to determine the scariest monster of all-time and enlist a baby Parasaurolophus to help judge! Brave volunteers from the audience take turns being scary but can they outdo the Mighty T-Rex?
