So if you've ever splashed in a puddle or made mud pies, rainy days are for you. We've got four tented pavilions where you can dry off while playing dinosaur games and learning from our always knowledgeable and entertaining Field Station staff. Families willing to brave the elements will receive free Field Station ponchos with their admission. So batten down the hatches and prepare to ride out the storm with torrents of laughter, a smattering of mystery and a cloud burst of fun at Field Station: Dinosaurs.
