Park with Animatronic Dinosaurs Opening in Secaucus
A new family attraction featuring 31 animatronic dinosaurs opens this holiday weekend on a 20-acre wooded and grassy site in northern New Jersey, not far from the Turnpike.
Field Station: Dinosaurs in Secaucus includes a base camp and four learning stations along a three-quarter-mile trail.
Its moving dinosaurs include a 90-foot Argentinosaurus that park operators say will be visible from the Empire State Building in Manhattan, which is about 10 miles away.
The dinosaur attraction was designed in partnership with the New Jersey State Museum. It's located of the Turnpike's Exit 15X on land next to Laurel Hill Park. It will be open each year from Memorial Day weekend to mid-November.
