I was invited to attend this event as press. As always, the opinions I share are my own.

We had the opportunity to visit and enjoy Field Station: Dinosaurs. Dinosaurs After Dark last weekend. I know Fall is here but the temperature is still high and it was a really nice night out for The best family Night With Dinosaurs After Dark

The Best Family Night With Dinosaurs After Dark

For parents in the NY, NJ area looking for a fun family-friendly activity, I’ll suggest you check out Field Station: Dinosaurs, for all their activities and events this season. Dinosaurs After Dark will open every Friday and Saturday night through Oct. 26th.

What to Expect At Dinosaurs After Dark

Even the herbivores can look pretty scary when encountered during the Tyrannosaurus Hunt, a lantern-lit walking tour of the outdoor adventure park with 33 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs lead by one of Field Station’s fearless Dinosaur Wranglers. 

The Best Family Night

“Sure, traditional fall activities like hayrides and pumpkin picking are great photo opportunities but this is an experience that kids will be talking about years from now,” said Guy Gsell, Executive Director for Field Station: Dinosaurs.  “It’s a really unique way to enjoy the park, even for people that have already visited during the day.”

The Best Family Night

Dinosaurs After Dark visitors can also enjoy games at the Mesozoic Midway, a campfire sing-along, roasted marshmallows and hot chocolate, as well as the Cretaceous Costume Party live musical show created especially for this audience.
