About This Experience

General Information hide

Hop on board the Sacramento RiverTrain for some late morning fun!  Enjoy western entertainment as you are treated to a saucy barbecue lunch during this two and a half hour train excursion!

The day begins with a scenic train ride out to a park where you will enjoy a finger-licking barbeque picnic lunch by the Sacramento River. Along the way, numerous western characters will entertain you. At Robber’s Roost an elaborate old-fashion gunfight is staged between Bad Bob and the Sheriff.  If you're lucky, you may end up as an honorary cowpoke and learn the "secret handshake".

This Great Train Robbery Excursion is a wonderful way to spend the day and have some fun with friends and family – all aboard!
