If you’ve ever watched Jurassic Park, dreaming of hanging out with some prehistoric creatures, you may want to hightail it over to New Jersey: Turns out, Laurel Hill (Secaucus) is getting its very own animatronic dinosaur park!
Slated to open in May 2012, “Field Station: Dinosaurs” will be an outdoor science exhibition where visitors will be able to roam the grounds among 31 life-size robotic dinosaurs. The venue — fittingly complete with a 150 million-year-old rock formation — will also offer a petting zoo and educational programs about dinosaurs as well as the environment. Given its focus on the outdoors, the 24-acre park will naturally close during the winter months, from Thanksgiving on.
To promote Field Station, organizers sent a 14-foot T-Rex puppet to the Frank R. Lautenberg Secaucus Junction Station for a meet-and-greet with Giants and Packers fans on their way to MetLife Stadium.
I know the exhibition’s meant for kids, but who wouldn’t love hanging with some epic techno reptiles? For more, check out the vid.
