SUPERHERO EXPRESS

SUNDAY, MAY 21, 2023
3:00 PM

Boarding begins at 2:45 PM.


The Wilmington & Western has been attacked by the infamous Dad Joker, and our team of superheroes need your help to stop him from unleashing the ultimate joke! Can you and your favorite supers stop him before it’s too late? Arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the departure time to participate in our hero training course. Don your favorite disguise and join us for this epic and hilarious character excursion, along with four famous superheroes!

This is a 1½-hour round-trip ride to Ashland and 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 event again in 2023.

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