PRINCESS EXPRESS

Come aboard our train and ride to the Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove with the Ice Queen and her younger sister, the Ice Princess. You'll get to meet Beauty from Beauty and the Beast at the station, and there will be a live performance on the platform before your departure. Plus, there will be sing-alongs during the 1½-hour round-trip. Children are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite prince or princess.

We are thrilled to be partnering with Sew Classy Princess Parties to bring you this new event for 2018!

This event is powered by one of our historic first-generation diesel locomotives.
