Who Wants to Ride the DINOSAUR TRAIN™?

The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad is proud to announce its partnership with Rail Events Inc. and The Jim Henson Company to bring the officially licensed train ride event to Bryson City this season! Dinosaur Train rides are based on the hit award winning PBS KIDS® series DINOSAUR TRAIN. Departures will be from Bryson City Depot in North Carolina!

DINOSAUR TRAIN™ is an Emmy-nominated and Parents’ Choice Silver Honor TV series, and it consistently ranks in the top ten shows for kid’s ages 2 to 5. In the TV series, young viewers join Buddy and his adoptive family of Pteranodons on whimsical adventures through prehistoric jungles, swamps, volcanoes and oceans. For this event, families will take a ride on a real train bound for the Nature Trackers Adventure Area where young guests will participate in a series of fun and educational challenges as they unearth basic concepts in natural science, natural history and paleontology. Also included are music, children’s activities, Dinosaur Train merchandise and an opportunity to meet your favorite T.rex, Buddy!

Great Smoky Mountains Railroad joins only two other railroads nationwide in 2012 for this officially licensed event. The Dinosaur Train schedule is as follows: July 20-22, 27-29 & Aug 4 & 5.
