It’s the ultimate Cretaceous campout. Brave kids can explore the trails at night, by lantern light, and then roll out a sleeping bag under the stars to slumber among the dinos. Dozin’ with Dinos is an overnight adventure for ages 5 and older. Campers will also watch Walking with Dinosaurs: Prehistoric Planet 3D and end the night with s’mores and songs around the campfire before climbing into army-style tents. An evening snack and light breakfast are included.
