Life size dinosaurs all throughout the park was amazing. The dinosaurs has life like movements; breathing and sound wise. My 3 yr old loved it. They had scheduled programs/ shows going on specific locations around the park, so its great that you can plan your day around it. The staff was amazing! They were quick responders. So my 3 yr old bumped his head on the ticket counter, not hard enough that caused a bump but hard enough that had him wailing. One of the staff saw it and immediately gave us ice pack and a little stuffed dinosaur for the little one. We will definitely come back! Even the adults enjoyed it.

Good assortment of the dinosaurs, some move, staff seem to care alot and entertain the kids. Great for the little ones. Bring your own snacks for sure, and try not to use the restrooms, they are horrific, my toddler held her nose it was so bad ,and filthy. Not sure why they don't keep them up? Use a groupon to get in, 13.00 each, saves you 6.00 pp

We took a four year old to visit this location. Pros were that unlike some reviews, the staff was awesome. In particular, Angelica at the fossil dig, who helped the little guy out and told him all sorts of interesting facts about fossils. He clung to every work. Also, the singing staff at the t-Rex show was entertaining and the woman who ran the NJ specific fossils was great. These people are very patient, even when someone’s unruly child went up, picked up a skull and proceeded to break it. The dinosaurs are cool, and as adults, we enjoyed touring around. The only issue was the T. rex show was terrifying for the four year old... as were the scary, Jurassic Park type noises playing in the more wooded areas. Overall a fun experience.

Very helpful staff and they do a good job. The dinosaurs do not move much or anything. If you have kids it would be a good time for them but otherwise one could just learn a lot about the dinosaurs which is about it. It is a 2 hour max visit. Nothing too much fancy about it. I liked the way the manage the place and how the exhibits are. Parking can be a problem if you go there too late.

This was the absolute worst place I have ever been to. It is horribly run and is just one big dump. All the activities there are the absolute worst. It's also boring for any kids older then 6. Today me and my family came and I know we all regretted coming. First the wait to get in was so long and they favor all the people who buy tickets online and let them not even wait on line while all the people who used the groupon had to wait for so long. Then we finally walked into the park we were just extremely unimpressed by what we were paying for. It was like walking into a dump. We went to the stupidest show and the place looks as if there was just a tornado. It's an absolute mess and it's so boring for a family of different ages. Most places like this our family enjoys even hikes and we basically enjoy all of these outdoor places. This was the first to prove me wrong; it is the worst experience I have had. I strongly advise you not to come here because you will be wasting your money. You will regret this horrible experience and I am trying to save you from not having the same one as me.
