Join us to meet Buddy, the lovable and curious T. rex and celebrate the fascination that children have with both dinosaurs and trains!
Based on the hit PBS Kids Television series, Jim Henson's Dinosaur Train™ is back for a fifth year at the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.
The event begins in the Durango station as you prepare for your Dinosaur Train™ experience. Onboard the 30-minute train ride we'll keep you engaged with Dinosaur Train™ music, songs and sing-a-longs and an on-board snack. The children will also receive a Buddy Bag, and an Adventure Game Card!
At the Nature Trackers Adventure Area you will have 90 minutes of exciting activities and challenges for every age group. You'll experience fossil dig sites, dinosaur tracking, walk-like-a-dinosaur, dinosaur education, live animal show, face painting and temporary tattoos. Ride behind the Raptor-Tractor, dance to the live entertainment and be sure to have your photo taken with Buddy! If you need some nourishment, visit the Dino Diner at the event area to purchase delicious lunch, beverages and snacks.
With explorations, education, games, music and PRIZES, the entire family is sure to have a great time!
We are so happy to partner this year with the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science! Their team is coming up from Albuquerque location ready to engage with our guests to share real dinosaur and dinosaur-friend fossils and information that is sure to be interesting for all ages. With many years of experience, their team will help you to make a dinosaur mask, create your own dinosaur, cast your own fossil and other arts and crafts too!
