Pumpkin Patch Train Ride

October 7, 2017 @ 10:00 am - October 29, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

Unleash the kids this harvest season and set them loose on a Pumpkin Patch full of interactive games, prizes, tricks and treats!

Every Saturday and Sunday, October 7 through the 29th kids of all ages can ride the historic rails from the Rusk, TX train depot to Texas State Railroad’s very own Pumpkin Patch.

These daytime events, with 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. departure options, are fun not frightening, perfect for all ages. Wearing costumes adds to the enthusiasm so passengers are encouraged to come attired in their Halloween best.  Tiny boos and ghouls will also enjoy hopping in the bounce house and children may each select their own future jack-o-lantern to bring home aboard the train.

The 90-minute layover at the Pumpkin Patch includes hayrides, spooky tunes and seasonal music, and safe, fun trick-or-treating on “Trick or Treat Street.” Food Options will be available for purchase at the Pumpkin Patch.
