Make Your Birthday Dino-Mite!

Derby, Kansas Dinosaur Park

Birthday Parties

Forget those dingy bowling alleys and concrete “family entertainment centers.” Toss away those cardboard party hats and worthless skeeball tickets. At Field Station: Dinosaurs we’re saying good-bye to boring, uninspired birthday parties and inviting your child into an outdoor Paleozoic world of mystery, learning and unforgettable thrills!

Every party includes admission to the Field Station and its dramatic dinosaur-lined trails, the Fossil Dig, the Raptor Maze, the Paleo Playground, and over thirty live, educational and entertaining shows. Each birthday boy and girl gets a photo opportunity with the Mighty T-Rex* and a special hat to remember his or her incredible trip back in time.

With enhanced packages (the Jurassic and Cretaceous – see below), all children receive an age appropriate gift* as a thank-you for sharing this special day with your child and all participants get access to Jurassic Golf..

PLEASE NOTE: We are an outdoor exhibition. Party spaces are located in tented areas and are held rain or shine. Without a birthday reservation through Field Station: Dinosaurs, we do not permit cakes, party decorations, etc. to be brought into the park.
