All aboard the 2021 Cottontail Express at Wales West. Now departing the weekends during March 6th through April 3rd, 2021. Hours of operation are 10 AM to 3 PM.
Ride and enjoy an authentic steam train ride aboard the “Dame Ann” to visit the Easter Bunny! You and your family can take home your own spring picture of your family with The Bunny, socially distanced off course. Each child will receive a basket to help The Bunny pick up its eggs during a special Egg Hunt! For a slight fee enjoy a Peep Blaster, Café with meals and seasonal treats, Concession Stand with famous Kettle Korn and Cotton Candy, and a Gift Shop. Try our world-famous Kettle Corn or take home a Souvenir T-shirt!
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 Cottontail 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.
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, it is just not recommended.
***The Cottontail 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.***
