Field Station: Dinosaurs, a thrilling new 20-acre outdoor Jurassic expedition opening Sat., May 26th, will feature 31 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs, workshops, games and shows. Walk along the ¾ mile trail, visit with their interactive 15-foot Tyrannosaurus Rex puppet, learn about the link between birds and dinosaurs and dig for fossils.
The park, located at One Dinosaur Way in Secaucus is the only one of its kind in the United States and will feature the largest animatronic dinosaur ever made, the 90 foot long Argentinosaurus.
Field Station: Dinosaurs is a world-class family attraction that combines cutting-edge science with the creative minds of great artists and teachers to create a one-of-kind experience that's thrilling, educational and fun.
Set against the breathtaking natural backdrop of the New Jersey Meadowlands and nestled at the base of a 150 million year old rock formation, the Field Station is an oasis of natural wonder just nine minutes from New York City. Over thirty life-sized, realistic dinosaurs (including the ninety foot long Argentinosaurus, the largest animatronic dinosaur ever made) come to life thanks to the brilliant engineering of the world's leading roboticists and the imagination of our artists.
The story of the dinosaurs is vividly presented on twenty acres of wild, unpredictable woods, mysterious pathways, and mountain trails. 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. Workshops, games and activities connect the story of the dinosaurs to our world today, giving new relevance to their lives and power to the tale of their extinction.
And at the center of it all is the fun, the joy and the wonder of dinosaurs. Our expedition takes every family on a shared adventure - full of mystery, surprise and a sense of awe.
