PRINCESS EXPRESS

Join us aboard our Princess Express as five royal characters ride the train and join our guests for a regal experience in the Red Clay Valley!

This year, Snow White, Tinkerbell, Cinderella, the Frog Princess and the Jewel Princess will be joining us.

Be sure to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the departure time for pictures with the characters and to catch our live platform performance, complete with a sing-along and dancing. Prince and princess attire is encouraged! The princesses will visit everyone aboard the train during the 1½-hour round-trip to Ashland. This train will not stop or layover at the Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove.

We are thrilled to be partnering with Sew Classy Royal Events to bring you this popular event once again.

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