There’s an awesome reason to venture to Bergen County’s Field Station: Dinosaurs at Overpeck Park this fall and it’s all about what happens after dark. With more than 30 life-sized, realistic dinosaurs, Field Station: Dinosaurs will awe your mini fans of prehistoric predators with tons of nighttime spooks and surprises.  

Field Station: Dinosaurs will be open for eight weeks, beginning September 23-November 12, but you'll definitely want to visit on the weekends. Meet a Paleontologist during "Super Stars of Science" and see findings from a dino dig in Wyoming and learn about what a Paleontologist does. Make sure to stay until night falls for Dinosaurs After Dark.

The special after-hours experience is perfect for families who want explore the trails and park by flashlight and get up-close-and-personal with a T-Rex. There's also interactive live shows like "Did Dinosaurs See in the Dark?" which will answer the 65-million-year-old question. End the night with a sing-along at the campfire and roast some marshmallows with your little explorers.
