Covid 19 update: New this year, Wales West is moving to a reservation-based ticketing system. In an effort to maintain Social Distancing guidelines and maintain the safety of our guest, we have to limit the number of passengers we ride per day.
In order to do that, we are selling Arctic Express tickets exclusively online. Each ticket will have a set DATE and TIME of departure. Please try to purchase the tickets you need for your whole party (i.e. friends and family) at one time. We ask that you purchase at least 4 tickets per order, but that is not a requirement. We are attempting to socially distance each group of passengers and if we get too many small groups, we will run out of benches on the train to seat everyone. We thank you in advance for understanding.
There will only be a limited number of “walk up” tickets available per day. These will be sold on a first come first serve basis.
There is a chance you will not be able to ride the Arctic Express if you do not purchase tickets ahead of time!!
Be sure to plan to arrive at the Railway at least 30 minutes before your train is scheduled to leave! The "Dame Ann" leaves the station on a sharp schedule! In the case you do miss your train, do not fret, we will work to get you a seat on the next available train, its just not recommended.
***The Arctic Express is a Rain or Shine Event. We will make every attempt to operate the day of the event. If, and only if, we are not able to operate, we will contact all guests for that day via email with options.***
