Dinosaur Train Comes to Mount Hood Railroad


Based on the hit PBS Kids Television series, Jim Henson’s Dinosaur Train™ is coming for the first time to the Mount Hood Railroad in Hood River, Oregon. Adventure-seekers will meet Buddy, the loveable and curious T. Rex, and challenge their inner explorer at the Nature Tracker’s Adventure Park. There, kids will participate in 4 challenges designed to earn them stamps on their Game Card which, when complete, will get them their 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.
