About Dinosaurs After Dark

Dinosaurs After Dark is a fun, mysterious expedition into a shadowy, prehistoric world. But things get a little scary when the lights go out and it’s discovered that there’s a vicious T-Rex on the loose!

Dinosaurs After Dark at Field Station Dinosaurs Activities

  • Expedition Commander Guy Gsell, will lead a Tyrannosaurus Hunt along the Field Station’s darkened trails with a stop at every dinosaur and a few surprises along the way.
  • This unique family experience includes three live shows.
  • The Dinosaur Profiler will be on hand to explore the modus operandi of the T-Rex, from its ability to see in the dark to its amazing sense of smell.
  • The Field Station’s Director of Security and Safety has prepared a Dinosaur Survival Guide for when guests come face-to-face with a T-Rex. By looking at the dinosaurs that lived in the age of T-Rex, children will learn from the greatest masters of Dinosaur Self-Defense – triceratops, stegosaurus and dilophosaurus!
  • The Dinosaur Troubadour will host the Crazy Cretaceous Costume Party, a musical puppet show where staff paleontologists use the scientific method to determine the scariest Halloween costume of all. Is it the mummy, the vampire, the skeleton … or the dinosaur?
  • The Field Station team is ready to conduct an experiment and announce their conclusions.
  • Along the way you’ll even meet a baby parasaurolophus and a walking T-Rex skeleton!
  • End your fun family night out by gathering around the campfire for a dinosaur song-a-long, roasted marshmallows and hot chocolate.
