Once in a Lifetime Steam Train Ride through Santa Cruz
The original Santa Cruz Portland Cement Company Engine No. 2 is geared up for her return to the Santa Cruz Mountains.
On July 11-13, 1909 meets 2014 on this ride through Santa Cruz, up the coast toward Wilder Ranch and back. This beautifully restored, 105 year-old steam engine will be quite a sight chuggin’ down the tracks of Santa Cruz.
Join Engine No. 2 as she rambles through redwood forests, coastal bluffs and bustling downtown Santa Cruz. The train will depart from the Boardwalk on Friday and from Roaring Camp Saturday and Sunday. Don’t miss your chance to be part of this once in a lifetime celebration.
Day Out with Thomas
July 25–27 & August 1–3
Thomas The Tank Engine™ is back at Roaring Camp for Day Out With Thomas. Watch your child’s favorite Tank Engine jump off the screen and onto the tracks of Roaring Camp Railroads!
Since Thomas the Tank Engine left the depot more than 65 years ago, this Really Useful Engine and his Island of Sodor friends have chugged their way into the hearts of preschoolers and grownups worldwide. Based on The Railway Series of classic stories authored by a father who loved trains and wanted a shared experience with his son, Thomas & Friends™ is a rite of passage that inspires the imagination while teaching the life lessons of friendship, exploration and cooperation.
A ticket for Day Out With Thomas includes the train ride with Thomas the Tank Engine, and a variety of Thomas & Friends themed entertainment, including Storytelling and Video Viewing, Temporary Tattoos of Island of Sodor friends, and an Imagination Station with Arts & Crafts and other great activities. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet Sir Topham Hatt, the Controller of the Railway on the Island of Sodor.
Join us for an unforgettably fun day and make memories that will last a lifetime at Roaring Camp Railroads.
