Overachieving parent alert! Do you want to buy tickets now for a real steam-powered locomotive ride complete with an Easter Egg Hunt? You will also get to drive to/from the Santa Cruz Mountains!
If this sounds like a good fit for your family, there are eight available train rides on Saturday, April 11 and Sunday, April 12; buy tickets for the 11 am, 12:30 pm, 2 pm, or 3:30 pm rides leaving from Roaring Camp in Felton on either day.
Called Eggstraordinary Easter Egg Hunt Steam Train, tickets are $26 for children and $33 for adults and include all the magic.
Hop on Board! After riding Roaring Camp's real 1880s Steam Train under the majestic Redwoods, over Indian Creek Trestle and through the Santa Cruz Mountains, your kids are going to have the time of their lives scavenging for chocolate eggs at the top of Bear Mountain. The magic of trains, mixed with the magic of the Easter Bunny sounds pretty amazing.
NOTE: There is no equivalent Easter Egg Hunt on the “Beach Train”.
