Royal Adventure Days
Sunday, October 1
Train rides with Princesses at 12pm & 2pm
Royal Adventure Days bring sparkling glamour to the railroading world. Twelve princesses join the B&O for a day of one on one interactions and fun. Along with the royal train ride, young princes and princesses have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, complete challenges in each kingdom, create inventions and master craft making while learning about different aspects of the railroad. Each kingdom is based on an aspect of the B&O Railroad and represents the most beloved characters from recent and classic storybooks and movies. The kingdoms allow children to learn about the science and history of the railroad as they work hard to complete each task.
