If you're looking for a unique birthday party, church outing, or school field trip, look no further! Our train rides and planetarium programs are available to any group.

C&S Railroad

Take your group for a ride on the scenic C&S Railroad! This 30-minute trip takes guests through Quartz Canyon, into a snow tunnel, past the C&S Railroad's roundhouse, and more.

A picnic pavilion overlooks the tracks near the end of the trip, providing a great place for your picnic lunch. A large charcoal grill, serving table, and seating for 80 are available at the pavilion.

Rides are available by appointment, and can be scheduled for any group of 15 or more. Each ride lasts about 30-45 minutes, and includes a presentation of the gospel: the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. While there is no charge for the ride, please consider donating to enable upkeep and maintenance of the railroad.

Each of our planetarium programs discusses space from a scientific, Biblical perspective. Your group of 15 or more can schedule any program by appointment.
