Excursion Types



The French Lick Scenic Railway currently offers several different excursion experiences.  These include:

Scenic Train Rides

These rides are an 18-mile round trip (1-hour & 45 minutes in length)  into the corner of the Hoosier National Forest.  On the way you will pass by sites such as the 1850’s log cabin and through the 2200-foot long Burton Railroad Tunnel all while traveling through the Forest.

* Scenic Train Rides will not begin in 2022 until July due to an ongoing maintenance project.


Dinosaur Adventure Train

An adventure filled train ride with learning and MAMMOTH amounts of fun!

* Dinosaur Adventure Train will take place during two weekends in June and two weekends in September.


Summer Splash Bash

Do you love summer? Is it your favorite time of the year? Do you wish summer would last all
year long?  Join us for the SUMMER SPLASH BASH. This event will take fun seekers of all ages on a real train
bound for Summerville, a place where summer never ends.  Some of the activities will include a foam cannon, inflatable water slides, mini-golf, temporary tattoos, and more!
