Amtrak launched the "Kids Depot," an interactive website where young rail fans and their families can play and learn about train travel and the Amtrak journey.
The site is arranged as a 3D virtual world with seven different "neighborhoods" full of exclusive online-only content to explore. Friendly characters in each area introduce kids to a wealth of engaging interactive games along with activities to download and take onboard.
Designed to be fun as well as educational, the games, activities and downloads cover a variety of topics including Amtrak, trains, geography, the environment, memory-building and problem-solving.
The site provides kids of all age levels the chance to discover and explore the rich and vast history of rail travel. The online games vary in their level of difficulty, offering everyone the chance to play along at their own pace.
