This summer, Jim Henson's Dinosaur Train (based on the hit PBS Kids Television series) is coming for the first time to the Mount Hood Railroad in Hood River, Oregon! Your kids will get to meet Buddy, the loveable and curious T. Rex, and visit the Nature Tracker's Adventure Park. There, kids will participate in 4 challenges designed to earn them stamps on their Game Card to earn a Nature Trackers Membership Card. Challenges include digging for fossils, identifying dinosaur footprints, excavating and a dino-themed craft area. Children (and parents) will enjoy live entertainment, food and face painting to celebrate their accomplishment.
The half hour train ride itself is a fun-filled journey complete with Dinosaur Train music, sing-a-longs and a delicious snack. All children on board will receive a Buddy Bag, and an Adventure Game Card as a keepsake memory of this adventure-filled day out with the family.
