GALACTIC EXPRESS

Climb aboard for an intergalactic journey with your favorite heroes and most sinister villain from the Dark Side! Pre-boarding activities will include lightsaber training. Then it’s off to ride the rails for more fun and games! You'll ride to the Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove with our heroes, and all are encouraged to come dressed in their favorite out-of-this-world costume. This is a 1½-hour round-trip.

We are excited to be partnering with Party Princess Productions - Wilmington to bring you this new event in 2020!

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