very disapointed

that was the worst event i have ever taken my kids too. there was nothing about the show at all besides some coloring pages on a table. also there was no 6 foot anything, youn people had one small cardboard thing the my three yr old was taller then. If you guys are going to advertise something at least let it be true. also if it wasnt for the people that run the museum there would have been nothing to do for for the kids. as far as what was advertised about dinosaur train be you guys you made it sound great until we got there and it was awful. NOT A GOOD TIME.

I went to the Dinosaur Train

I went to the Dinosaur Train Day today and was a little disappointed that there weren't more Dinosaur Train related activities. There was one crowded table where kids could color a picture, make a conductor hat, or a puppet and also get a sticker or tattoo. Other than that, it was just a normal visit to the Train Museum, which we could have done any weekend. I was expecting perhaps, to see/meet costume characters.
