On Sunday morning, we headed over to the Gaylord for Dragon Training Camp. This was one of the new Dreamworks-themed experiences the hotel was offering this summer, and one that sounded perfect for Team Danger.
He then hands out some Viking Juice to the kids, to give them strength for Dragon Training.
Next, we spent a while (a LONG while) watching some dragon training clips on their tvs. I'm not sure if these are part of an extra on some DVD, or if they were filmed specifically for this event. But these clips - and commentary from Hiccup - took about 30 minutes.
Then, Astrid led the kids in dragon fighting training.
Although there was some concern that we had to give back the swords and armor we used for training.
Finally, it was time to meet a real, "live" dragon, Toothless. Each child got to climb up on Toothless, and they showed you "riding" on Toothless thanks to green screen technology.
The Scout museum is about a ten minute drive away from the Grapevine area.
They had a Pinewood Derby track set up, and some cars you could race down them.
We had a lot of fun at the Scout museum. I recommend a trip for all Scouts, young and old.
