Journey aboard the annual Great Pumpkin Train to the grassy pumpkin field that only appears once a year, on this very special weekend. Museum admission is included and there is tons of fun inside the Depot too.

When you arrive at the “pumpkin patch” on the train, each passenger gets to pick out their own pumpkin to take with them. The train ride is about 90 minutes total, and you’ll return to the Duluth Depot where you can stay all day to tour the railroad museum (included and open until 5pm). Helpful tip: Bring a bag to carry pumpkins in – Grocery bags work great.

The Pumpkin Trains weekend is an annual fall tradition you won’t want to miss, and is sure to create new memories you’ll want to experience each year.

The Lake Superior Railroad Museum, included with your ticket, is only open until 5pm. If you are on a later train, be sure to come early to enjoy the museum activities.

Domecar Seats are available for a few dollars more. These are seats in our unique upper level viewing cars, with lounges below to store pumpkins. Concession are available for sale with these tickets. Due to limited space, all passengers (infants too) have to pay for a DomeCar seat.

Ages 2 and under are free, but only ticketed passengers can get a pumpkin (parents share with the little ones in the case of 2 and under).  The Pumpkin Patch Ride is not wheelchair accessible for deboarding at the patch.
