Terms & Conditions
Like any ticketed event, all sales are final and no refunds or exchanges are offered unless the ticketed train does not operate.
Refunds will be given under the following circumstances:
A. If the train does not make it to the first
destination, a full refund will be given.
B. If the train makes it to one of the stations
and not the next, a refund will be given for the
difference of half of the round trip ticket.
Adults $29.00 Round Trip = $14.50 Refund
Children $14.00 Round Trip = $7.00 Refund
Advance ticket purchase is recommended at least one week prior to your ride as tickets sell out. You are able to change the date or time of your departure after your tickets are purchased, but all purchases are non-refundable.
Seating is first come, first serve. If you have a party of 5 or more, we recommend arriving at least 45 minutes in advance to ensure you will be seated together. Purchasing tickets as a group does not guarantee being seated together. All passenger cars are covered. Some have windows that open and close and others have open sides. Seating is bench style, with two people per seat. The enclosed cars have padded seats and the open cars have wooden bench seats.
Thank you for your purchase! Your tickets will be available at the will-call desk. Please check in and pick up your
tickets 45 minutes before the departure time at the location shown here:
