Dinosaurs After Dark

Dinosaurs just got scarier!  

Dinosaurs After Dark is a spooky, funny adventure into a shadowy, prehistoric world. But things get a little scary when the lights go out it's discovered there's a vicious T-Rex on the loose! 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 and a campfire with singing, s'mores and hot chocolate! 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 will 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 we'll meet a baby parasaurolophus and a walking T-Rex skeleton!

At the end of the night, everyone will gather around the campfire for a dinosaur song-a-long, s'mores and hot chocolate!
