All aboard the dinosaur train

The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad offer a train ride based on the PBS kids series Dinosaur Train, departing from Bryson City July 20 to 22, 27 to 29 and Aug. 4 to 5.

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 ride a train bound for the Nature Trackers Adventure Area where young guests will participate in a series of educational challenges as they unearth basic concepts in natural science, natural history and paleontology. Also included are music, Dinosaur Train merchandise and an opportunity to meet Buddy.

Tickets start at $39 per adult and $30 per child ages 2 to 12. Crown Class tickets are $49 per adult and $36 per child.
