Family Friendly Rides

All Aboard Family Friendly Rides

Take the kids on board for these fun, family-friendly excursions! These interactive programs are perfect to entertain the whole family.

Children 3 and up need a ticket. Children under the age of 3 do not need a ticket but must sit on a parent’s or guardian’s lap. If your little ones love princesses and superheroes, we recommend Royalty on the Rails and Superheroes on the Train. We also offer build-your-own stuffed animal workshops, holiday crafts, cookie-decorating rides and more! Scroll this page or you can search by date.
