All the dinotruxs migrate to the beach and have a blast, they surf and play in the sand, but some like the water more than others, and one of the dinotrux band together to rescue their pal from a shark attack.
The dinotrux decide to build the greatest sandcastle of all time but realize that none of them have ever built a sandcastle before so they do not know where to start. Tyrannosaurus Trux takes the lead and through teamwork the dinotrux make a very cool sandcastle!
