Dinosaur Adventure Train

Let's face it, kids love dinosaurs, my nephew is 4 and you can show him a photo of any dinosaur and he can quickly tell you exactly which dinosaur that is.   So when I heard about this dinosaur adventure train experience in French Lick, it definitely excited my inner child. I mean, dinosaurs AND trains?!  Now that is an exciting combination.


A Paleo-Adventure Camp

The Dinosaur Adventure Train will take guests to a "PaleoDdventure Camp" where guests can enjoy all kinds of activities.  There will be educational adventures as well as live reptile encounters, a bounce house, a fossil dig, mini-golf, temporary tattoos, and more.  The entire experience will take around 2 and a half hours. Per the French Lick Scenic Railway's website:

The DINOSAUR ADVENTURE TRAIN will allow explorers and adventure seekers of all ages to take a trip on a real train bound for the PaleoAdventure Camp. This is where young guests will participate in a series of dino-mite fun and educational adventures, as they discover basic concepts in natural science, prehistoric history, and paleontology.
