Our Famous Bunny Train, features none other than the Bunny herself. Bring the family for a spring train ride and enjoy some Holiday fun.
Train events will vary what cars are included, below are details about each car and class:
Newly renovated vintage railroad passenger cars over 100 years old decorated for fall. Heated, with a restroom.
Table and chair seating, 4 to a table (if under 4 in your party, you may be paired with others) Locally sourced cider (Hill Brother’s Orchard) and Coopersville’s famous “Delly Belly” pumpkin theme donuts. Heated, with a restroom.
The kids love this. Adults too. Ride in our red caboose at the end of the train. We suggest you visit our station restrooms before your ride as there are no facilities in the caboose (but we can get you to one of our coach restrooms at the Marne stop after a 45 minute ride).
Limited to just one lucky rider per train. Ride up in our 70 year old locomotive in a “jump side”. We suggest you visit our station restroom as there are no restrooms up in the cab.
