There was a time (i.e. when I was a small kid) that I wanted “Jurassic Park” to exist. As I grew up, I realized the implications such a park could have on not only our environment and science, but also on the human race and decided that it would be a horrible idea to have such a park invented. However, if you’re of the camp who want to see dinosaurs walk among us, New Jersey has the best next thing.

According to SlashFilm, a dinosaur park is opening in Seacaucus, New Jersey. The park, Field Station: Dinosaurs, is a 24-acre park that will have over 30 (count ’em, 30) life-size, animatronic dinosaurs that will walk around the park as if they are real animals. Scary stuff, in my book.

The park will open in May 26, 2012 and remain open through Thanksgiving. The park, which utilizes the prehistoric terrain in the area, will also have a dinosaur petting zoo and teach children about the environment and the real dinosaurs the animatronic ones represent. This is, for sure,going to be a great place to take elementary school kids for field trips. You can learn more about the theme park at NJ.com and Movies.com.

What do you think? Will you go to the park in order to walk among the dinosaurs? Does seeing dinosaurs in any capacity freak you out? Give your opinions below.
