T. rex and his crew are soaking up their time in the spotlight.

Dinosaur activities are aplenty, and now every paleontologist's go-to spot is about to reopen for the season. 

Field Station: Dinosaurs will welcome visitors back for the prehistoric fun beginning Saturday, May 25, and we guarantee a few summer day trips are on the horizon. In addition to walking alongside a cool animatronic Argentinosaurus and listening to a 15-foot T. rex roar, there are plenty of new attractions to explore. Who's ready?!

Mesozoic Midway 

Traditional outdoor games get a dinosaur twist all summer long at Mesozoic Midway! Here, little ones can test their skills and vie for a dino-mite prize. No one will walk away empty-handed, as kiddos are able to play until they snag a goodie to take home.

Head to the Family Tent to learn how to draw dinos and guess what colors they might have been way back when. Here, kiddos be able to discover what scientists know about the creatures.

As the popular saying goes, "What came first: The dinosaur or the egg?" Little dinos are just about ready to hatch, and the Field Station staff is looking for visitors to help them welcome the new arrivals. 

While you're visiting this cool family attraction, make sure to try dinosaur origami, crack a code with a challenging scavenger hunt, study T. rex's eating habits and so much more. 

If your kids can't get enough of paleontology, don't forget to check out this year's other new dino attractions, including "T. rex: The Ultimate Predator" exhibit at the Museum of Natural History and the larger-than-life Dinosaur Safari at the Bronx Zoo. Add 'em to your summer activities checklist!
