Schedule and Location

January 13 - February 19, 2018

10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. weekdays
9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. weekends

On the day of your visit, you will need to acquire free, timed tickets, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Visitor Center Information Desk. Time slots do become full and "sell out," so please secure your tickets upon arrival, as it is likely you will not be able to acquire tickets for immediate access.

All aboard! 

Marvel at a world of tiny enchantment! Watch an intricate miniature model railroad wind through magnificent scenery that the whole family can enjoy.  Watch as more than 10 model trains wind through a two-level display of tree collections from around the world. The trains run at a child-friendly height to thrill even the littlest fan.

Some children may be over-stimulated by all of the sights and sounds of the Enchanted Railroad. This year we are setting aside special times to accommodate these families. Learn more about our Sensory Friendly Times.
