SUPER HERO EXPRESS

Jumping straight out of the comic books, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Black Panther and Leonardo the Ninja Turtle visit the Wilmington & Western to ride the rails! You'll ride to the Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove with our heroes, and all are encouraged to come dressed in their favorite super hero costume. This is a 1½-hour round-trip.

We are excited to be partnering with Kool Beans Parties to bring you this NEW event for 2019!

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