Dinosaurs After Dark

Dinosaurs just got scarier!  

Take a fun, mysterious journey into a shadowy, prehistoric world. Explore the dark woods and haunted trails of Snake Hill. Celebrate at the Dinosaur Dance Party, make s'mores and sing around the campfire, but WATCH OUT! Danger lurks in every corner and there's a T-Rex on the loose.

The sights and sounds of Field Station: Dinosaurs take on a new sense of mystery and danger as you walk the darkened trails and explore our park with just a flashlight to lead the way. Your imagination runs wild as the path narrows and you step into the shadows. Was that a scream? What’s that moving in woods? You look up and there it is - the T-Rex, its teeth visible in the flashlight’s beam as it rears its giant head. No trip to the zoo was ever like this!

This unique family experience includes an eerie presentation on the ghosts of Snake Hill to set the mood, a special nighttime edition of our family Olympics style T-Rex games, a dinosaur sing-a-long with a spectacular view of the New York City skyline and, of course, a campfire complete with roasted marshmallows and s’mores.
