All aboard the Minnesota River Valley Railroad! Take a ride through Valleyfair on this nostalgic train ride. Our trains are scale replicas of the famous 1800's locomotive known as The General, which was the subject of the Great Locomotive Chase of the American Civil War. This winding track takes riders through tunnels, over ponds, and under rollercoasters. This train is a great way to get from one side of the park to the other – or circle right back to your original depot! Sit back and relax on these shaded train benches and wave to other guests as you stroll around the park in style. There are two depots in the park you can board or exit from. Find either train station at Planet Snoopy™ or between Route 76 and Depot Refreshments in order to find yourself on the other side of the park without the long walk. Perfect for kids and parents alike!
Riders must be 46” tall to ride alone or accompanied by a supervising companion.
