I’d been hearing about it for weeks on a NYC radio station:
“9 minutes outside the city, 90 million years back in history“
I have two little boys, who love shows like Dinosaur Train & Dino Dan, who just this month at daycare have been bringing me handfuls of construction paper shaped like giant lizards and saying words like T-Rex and Brontosaurus as if they were real, live and walking around Bethlehem PA.
So I was Thrilled when Mama Drama sent me an invitation to visit FIELD STATION DINOSAURS, a interactive family attraction that introduces you to the prehistoric with life sized animatronic dinosaurs and detailed information on each one of them, along with workshops and fun activities.
Giovanni and Jacob loved their time here, well they did after the they encountered the first dinosaur, whose roar and life like teeth made all of us jump back in fear (SMILE).
Life like, sounding just like what you would imagine from your memories of Land of the Lost, the park was a thrill and so much fun. While my sons had no interest in the very cool workshops or activities that are built into your visit there, they did ask to go back to the T-REX quite a few times, to roar at him as if they were just as tough.
To my surprise, Giovanni knew the names of some of the dinasours before I could try to sound them out phonetically while his biggest concern with each one was “do they eat people or just grass?” Jacob, over his intial fear of their size and true to life movements, was mesmerized with them and for days after carried his TRAIL MAP everywhere we went telling everyone about his trip back in time.
We had a fantastic afternoon, getting to travel back in time and to see the NYC skyline behind the body of a T-REX that might very well have roamed the Meadowlands some 90 Million years ago.
For a few hours, it was hard to believe those giant lizards are really extinct.
If you are in the Tri-State area (or in PA like we are) I encourage you to take an afternoon and go back in time at Field Station Dinasours.
It’s a ROARING good time.
And I got to spend the day with my favorite little palentologists.
We were offered complimentary tickets to Field Station Dinosaurs courtesy of Mama Drama Consulting, but the expressed opinions and review of our trip are all mine.
