Please Note: The Miniature Train is Now Open for the Year! 

We're pleased to let you know that our miniature train ride is now open for the year. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we ensured that everything was ready and safe. 

Did You Know that for your safety, we can not operate the train ride if the tracks are wet, or if there's thunder and lightning in the area? We also have to suspend operations whenever Water Treatment Plant staff are required to adjust river flows at the dam. The Trent Severn Waterway manages the river's level and flow and we are required to immediately implement any changes they request. This typically takes about an hour. In these cases, our Train Operators will open the train again as soon as it is safe to do so.
