from Verde Canyon Railroad Train Ride
Verde Canyon Railroad is a Southwestern adventure that takes passengers on four-hour scenic ride through Arizona’s backcountry, only accessible from the comfort of this train. This legendary “boutique” attraction offers an uncommon view of a wildly wonderful red-rock canyon.

This is the only excursion train in the Southwest where every guest enjoys two seats for the price of one: inside viewing through large panoramic windows and 360-degree views from adjacent open-air viewing cars. Lunch is available at Copper Spike Café, shopping at Boxcar Gift Shop, John Bell Train Museum, and educational Storyboards throughout the property.

Spacious living room-style seating near panoramic windows highlights this scenic excursion. Individually-packaged, freshly-made snacks of meats, cheeses, fruits and our popular brownie bites are served at your seats. Full bar service is available in every car. Bottled water is provided throughout the trip. All seating cars connect to open-air viewing platforms. "Private" seating is not guaranteed as our seating is configured in even number of two or four. Facing couches accommodate four people while two chairs and a table accommodate pairs. In order to oblige the high volume of reservation requests, there will be times when non-associated parties will be seated across from another party.
