DINOSAUR TRAIN: Dinosaur Big City DVD for GIVEAWAY + Amtrak Vacations®

 The Jim Henson Company, Random House Children’sBooks and Paramount Home Entertainment have partnered with Amtrak for a nationwide promotion in August to support the season premiere on PBS KIDS of Dinosaur Train:  Dinosaur Big City on August 22 and the DVD release on August 23. 


From August 1 – 31, families can embark on their own DINOSAUR TRAIN adventure by entering the Amtrak - Dinosaur Train Sweepstakes.  One lucky family of 4 (2 adults / 2 children) will win an Amtrak Vacations® Rocky Mountain National Park Tour to visit the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center in Woodland Park, Colorado as part of the grand prize.  In addition, the promotion will feature DINOSAUR TRAIN place mats on Long Distance Trains, while seat backs, counter cards, activity book giveaways will be in over 100 stations nationwide to promote the sweepstakes and DVD release.  One million ticket jackets will be used system wide featuring DINOSAUR TRAIN. The “Dinosaur Big City” DVD will also include an Amtrak offer in 50,000 units.  Visit www.henson.com/Dtsweepstakes for promotion details.

DINOSAUR TRAIN, created by Craig Bartlett(Hey Arnold!), embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains while encouraging basic scientific thinking and skills. Each episode includes animated segments with live-action sequences featuring a paleontologist who brings to life the show's natural science and natural history curriculum for preschoolers, giving specific facts about dinosaurs and comparing their features to animals of today.


The DINOSAUR TRAIN: Dinosaur Big City DVD includes eight fun and engaging learning adventures, as well as interactive games, coloring pages, dinosaur reference guide and information for parents. The DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.99 U.S./$15.99 Canada. 

The DINOSAUR TRAIN: Dinosaur Big City DVD is presented in wide screen with Dolby Digital English Stereo and English SDH subtitles.  The run time is 100 minutes.  The DVD includes the following:

Adventures:
·      Dinosaur BigCity – Part 1
·      Dinosaur BigCity – Part 2
·      Dinosaur BigCity – Part 3
·      Dinosaur BigCity – Part 4
·      Troodon Train Day
·      King Cryolophosaurus
·      The Theropod Club
·      Laura Giganotosaurus

Special Features:
·      Interactive Games
·      Coloring Pages
·      Dinosaur Reference Guide
·      Dinosaur Discoveries with Dr. Scott, the paleontologist

In “Dinosaur BigCity,” join Buddy the T. rex and his Pteranodon family as they gather all their Theropod friends together to travel to the big Theropod Club Convention which is being held in Laramidia, the “Dinosaur Big City!” Among the travelers is King Cryolophosaurus, who’s more than a little nervous about giving a concert in front of his biggest audience ever. Can Buddy and Tiny help him overcome his fear of performing?
