Sledding on Apatosaurus Hill

There may not be snow but there’s always sledding at Field Station: Dinosaurs!

Field Station: Dinosaurs has created the Wichita area’s wackiest kid-sized luge run just in time for the holidays. Dinosaur lights and hay bales line the trail as future Olympians race down our bunny hill on an all-season sled.  Guaranteed winter fun!

 Santasaurus Rex

No Santa in the mall this year? Come and meet the Santasaurus Rex instead! Bring your camera and get a great, unexpected photo that’s great for every dino lover’s Christmas card.

Tri-ditarod

What do you get when you cross Alaska’s grueling 1,000 sled dog race with Field Station: Dinosaurs? The Saurapod Iditarod – a much shorter, much safer and much funnier version of the winter classic! Triceratops has assembled a team of long neck dinosaurs to pull his sled and all he needs is a champion musher to win the race!  A fun-filled ride for our smallest paleontologists.
