Pumpkin Express

  • Overview

    Take the family on this one hour and thirty minute journey (across our 156' tall Bass Point Creek High Bridge, and the Des Moines River Bridge) to the Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad's pumpkin patch.  Once at the patch, children will be able to select their perfect pumpkin before returning to town.  On the return trip, children will receive an activity booklet and a treat.

    Everyone is more than welcome (and encouraged) to wear their costumes.

    Pumpkin Express trains leave the station promptly at 10:00 AM.  Trains will not be held for late arrivals. 

    It is recommended that guests arrive at least one hour before their scheduled departure.  This will allow you ample time to find a parking space, pick up your tickets, use the restroom, etc. There is no assigned seating -- all seating is first come, first served.  Guests must be together during boarding if they wish to sit together on the train. The ride is approximately one hour and thirty minutes in length (round trip).
