Cookout & Cowboy Cookouts
Do you have a large group that includes spouses and children at the conference or retreat? A train ride combined with a cookout could be a perfect ﬁt! You and your guests will board the train in French Lick for a 45-minute ride to our event site where everyone will de- board the train for a cookout. Meals can range between burgers and hot dogs to steak and pork chops. Other services available are:
- Sound equipment
- DJ Services
- Yard games – cornhole, yard darts, horseshoes, hillbilly golf
- Ticketed, open, or cash
You can also take your experience to the next level by arranging a Cowboy Cookout. Everything for a regular cookout is available PLUS… Cowboys! This band of robbers will put on a show as the train arrives at the event site. Horses, guns, and even the local marshal. Axer the marshal seyles things down, the cowboys will join your group for dinner, axer which they may just bring the horses back over for some one-on-one tme with everyone. Please note that the cowboys are typically only available on weekends.
If your group is made up of connoisseurs of a particular type of liquor, then a private tasting train may be just what you are looking for. Based on the special event Tasting Trains offered each year, these trips offer a combination of drinks and small plate food pairing that will complement the alcohol. The experience lasts about 70-minutes and provides passengers with a background on each type of drink or spirit served, and the best food pairing to go with it. The following tasting trains are currently offered.
