Field Station: Dinosaurs

We got a sneak peek at Field Station: Dinosaurs, New Jersey's new prehistoric theme park, and all we have to say is: Wow! At the Secaucus spot, kids can pretend to be prehistoric explorers as they walk through the New Jersey Meadowlands alongside animatronic dinosaurs including Stegosaurus and Triceratops. The theme park features 31 life-size dinosaurs in total, built with sensors and facial-recognition technology that makes them move as visitors draw near. Daring kids will get a thrill from hearing a 15-foot-tall T.rex roar in response to their excited shouts, but there are also activities geared toward the younger set. Little ones can pet and hold dinosaur babies at the Dinosaur Meet & Greet, or play Raptor Feud, a dino-centric version of the popular game show that quizzes families on geology and archaeology. We're also fans of the Mesozoic Concentration area, where families can experience the nitty-gritty of a dig site and learn about paleontologists' tools as they unearth a dinosaur skeleton together. Scroll through our slide show to get a look at these modern-day dinosaurs, then check them out in person (Field Station: Dinosaurs opens on Saturday, May 26). Want to make it a true dinosaur weekend? Also plan visits to the American Museum of Natural History's dinosaur halls and Dinosauar Bar-B-Que in Harlem.
