Excavation Station

Excavation Station

What's hidden in the sand? Grab a shovel and start digging in a large-scale sand pit to find out! Uncover buried dinosaur bones or have fun dressing-up as a paleontologist. When you're done in the sand, visit our rock gallery or crawl through a soil wall to see and learn about the amazing creatures living within the earth's surface. Visit with real-life animals or have fun standing under our life-size T-Rex, Tressie! There's plenty to see, touch and learn in Excavation Station.


Some props may not be available due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
