This year, we are starting sales with a 25% capacity cap. This is only 25 passengers per trip (not counting infants 2 and under), rather than our usual 110 passengers per trip. Space is very limited. Reservations are strongly encouraged for this show. Tickets can be purchased in-person at the The Duluth Depot (North Shore Scenic Railroad) complex starting at 3pm on the dates of performances if space is available, but space is very limited and reservations are strongly recommended.
There will be a $1.00 handling fee per ticket.
Wheelchair Information: The performance of the story is accessible, however the train ride is not, due to the historic nature of the equipment. Boarding the train requires about 4 steps up to the level of the train. Limited mobility patrons should consider extra time for walking to the train from parking.
The Bentleyville Shuttle Train operation is still TBD
