Dinosaur Road Trip at Union Station Kansas City

Friday, July 3, 2020
9:00am - 5:00pm

There's no place like home . . . but it sure is nice to get away!  Did someone say, "EPIC ROAD TRIP"?
It's time to buckle up for the ultimate family adventure along historic Route 66. Pack the snacks, make sure the camera’s charged and ready for some roar-some pics, and maybe even throw in an old-school map to help guide you along a journey filled with "Highway of Dreams" famous roadside attractions and hidden gems, including the world's largest cowboy boots, teapot, beagle, donut and more. Oh, and let's throw in a couple dozen life-size dinosaurs.
Yep, that’s right, you'll come face-to-face with the most amazing North American DINOSAURS along the way.  Fully animatronic, these bad boys move and make all sorts of realistic noises.
T-Rex, Allosaurus, Triceratops, Utahraptor… the list goes on.  From the kinda-friendly to the most ferocious, they'll all come to life during your coast-to-coast adventure . . . and ONLY at Union Station.  (Seriously, who else could create such an amazing and fun experience?)
Get ready for stops at the Grand Canyon, Graceland, Capitol Hill, the Gateway Arch and many others.  It's a little science, a bit of geography, a smidge of history AND a whole lotta fun!  When else do you get to see a T-Rex in front of the world’s largest baseball bat?  This prehistoric adventure meets Route 66 landmarks. Dinosaur Road Trip is a vacation like never before!
The exhibit will feature…
·       26 life-size animatronic dinosaurs including T-Rex, Allosaurus, Triceratops, Utahraptor and Supersaurus.
·       An adventure through 18 different states such as Washington, New York, Nevada and California.
·       Stops at 15 unique roadside attractions from the world’s largest office chair to the Devil’s Crossroads.
