Birthday Party Frequently Asked Questions

Can we bring party decorations into the park?
The birthday tent is lightly decorated but we welcome additional decorations that can be set up and taken down in 15 minutes or less.

Can I bring my own cake?
We allow cakes to be brought in for the Fossil Fete package only. We do not have a refrigerator or freezer to store cakes, therefore cakes that require these sort of climate control necessities are not recommended. Your party will still get cupcakes that are included in the package. You must provide your own cake plates and utensils.

Can I bring my own food?
Food may be brought in only if you have the Fossil Fete package. We do not permit food to be delivered to the park. Food must be walked in at the beginning of the party.

Can we bring coolers into the party?

Some of my party guests have severe allergies, may I bring my own cake/food?
Only under the most extreme cases can this be considered.  Requests will be brought to management and evaluated on a case by case basis in advance.

What is the party favor?
The party favor is a dinosaur plush toy. You are welcome to bring additional favor items for your guests.

Does Field Station: Dinosaurs provide paper plates, napkins and cutlery?
We do not provide these items. Feel free to bring fun themed plates, napkins and cutlery. If you have the Fossil Fete package these items are provided by the concession stand, i.e. hot dog comes in a hot dog basket.

What is the maximum amount of people I can have at a party?
Being a 22 acre park, we do not have a limit.

If I do not purchase a party package but only purchase admission tickets, may I bring in my own cake?
No. Without a birthday reservation through Field Station: Dinosaurs we do not permit cakes, party decorations, food, etc. to be brought to the park. If you do not purchase the Fossil Fete birthday package, you may not bring cupcakes or cakes into the park.
