DETROIT -

With so many vehicles to see at this year's North American International Auto Show, you may be looking for something fun to do.

Besides taking a look at the latest cars Ford has to offer at NAIAS, the automaker also offers a plethora of fun activities for people of ages.

To start, those who stop by the Ford exhibit can register for the Henry Ford tour. Mr. Ford and a crew of other time-piece actors will take you back as far as 1903, starting with the iconic Model A.

Many lined up to take part in a Focus ST Sport Technology vehicle simulator, which rocks you back and forth as you drive through a virtual world. Those who played the game attempted to beat the fastest time on record.

Players can also test out their gaming skills with the FordSMART Driving Challenge, or they can find a friend to navigate through a labyrinth together.

NAIAS attendees can become an "electric detective" to learn more about how many miles one can achieve with one of Ford's electric vehicles.

If you're looking to interact and learn more about the cars themselves, Ford offers spectators to pick up one of their "Blue Oval Cards." With the card, you electronically scan, collect and share all of the information you find about the vehicles, all while connecting it with your Ford account.

At home, you can access everything you've collected with their Blue Oval Card website. There, you can learn more about the vehicles you discovered at NAIAS, and you may even be entered into a prize draw.
