• The park’s Geology and Ecology section teaches visitors about the lands and rocks around them—and how they ended up in New Jersey.
• At the Climatology and Earth Science station, kids can learn about the weather and how it affected the dinosaurs as well as how if affects humans today.
• The Ornithology station teaches about winged dinosaurs and how they’re related to present-day birds.
Get up close with the Velociraptors lurking near the park’s many paths.
Other activities include a Dinosaur Meet & Greet; the Dinosaurs Alive! 3D IMAX experience; the T-rex Feeding Frenzy; the team activity Mesozoic Concentration, where kids become dinosaur hunters; T-rex Games, which hosts more games than the Olympics; and Raptor Feud, which is similar to the popular Family Feud game. There’s even a LaQ Construction Block Dino Station that tops off the fun of this awe-inspiring experience.
In the fall, the venue hosts Dinosaurs After Dark, a guided night tour through the haunted trails of Snake Hill that ends with s'mores and singing around the campfire.
While walking the park’s trails, visitors can see dinos like the Apatosaurus (a harmless herbivore) and even hear its call.
