from Verde Canyon Railroad Train Ride
Verde Canyon Railroad is a Southwestern adventure that takes passengers on a 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.

Is the Verde Canyon Railroad wheelchair accessible?
We have wheelchair accessibility in both coach and first-class but most motorized chairs/ scooters exceed the width/weight limit for the platform lift. The maximum weight for the lift platform is 400 lbs. Due to the historic nature of the Caboose it is not ADA compliant.
Guests may utilize personal manual wheelchairs as long as the width is no wider than 24.5 inches. We can provide, at no charge, a manual wheelchair. These wheelchairs have a weight limit of 250 lbs.
Whether using your own wheelchair or requesting the use of ours, please mention there is a wheelchair in the reservation when calling so the party will be seated in one of our accessible cars.
