The Park opens at 10 am, but we are open to school field trips at 9:00 am. We host field trips throughout the entire year.

Fields trips can be booked by calling the Park at 801-393-3466 or initiated by emailing us at Either way, plan to spend about 10 minutes on the phone with us discussing your activity options and the timelines for your visit. Once booked, we’ll send you confirmation of your reservation with more details.

All school groups receive a quick orientation about the Park upon arrival and then, depending on what activities you’ve chosen for your age group, we suggest at least 2 ½ hours. If you plan to eat lunch at the Park you’ll want additional time. The Dinosaur Park does not limit the time school groups can spend here. You’re welcome to stay as long as you want during our open hours.

Yes, you are welcome to bring outside food in for your students. We have plenty of picnic space available where your coolers or other containers will be safe while the students tour the Park. Our café is not currently operating, but we do carry snacks and beverages in the gift shop.

The Dinosaur Park provides an initial orientation for all students, and then, depending upon age – will provide a more in depth paleontology hands-on discussion or tour. We prefer to keep group tours under 30 children per group, but will accommodate your size as requested.

The Park offers 8 acres of outdoor trails as well as many fun playground toys. We suggest that you stay within a 5-7students: 1 adult ratio to make your visit more manageable and enjoyable.

Spring field trip days book quickly! We suggest you call 2-3 months in advance for spring dates and at least one month in advance for autumn or winter field trips. Field trips are booked first come-first served and subject to the size of groups.

Plan for 30-45 minutes per activity per group when you visit the Park.

Group rates are available for pre-booked educational field trips and we’ll be happy to discuss those rates with you by telephone or if you’d like to email us.

The Group rate includes all students, teachers and adult chaperones. When you check in at the front desk for your field trips, please let us know if chaperones will be paying separately.

We do not limit the overall size of the school groups, but we do limit the size of the groups for activities and hands-on presentations.

Parents are welcome to bring the rest of their family with them during field trips.

Group rates will apply for all group participants, regardless of age.

It is up to each individual school to decide their guidelines for additional participants during field trips.

Weather related cancellations will be treated the same as any other cancellation and will be rescheduled as if you are booking for the first time – on a first come, first served basis.

We will do our best to reschedule your group within the dates you request, but we cannot promise that those dates will be available because our schedule fills up so quickly!
