Fall fun is available everywhere you look these days, but if you're looking for something different to do with the family this year, check out these 3 popular pumpkin train rides in Wisconsin.

Fall Fun Is In High Gear

The fall season may have only officially begun a few weeks ago, but I'm willing to bet your family has already hit up favorite seasonal hotspots like our local apple orchards and pumpkin patches. Sure, we may have time to visit our favorite fall attractions again, but why not mix things up a bit this month?

Hop On Board a Pumpkin Train in Wisconsin

The other day I was talking to another parent at school pickup about an amazing pumpkin train ride their family took in Wisconsin the previous weekend, but I somehow missed where exactly that train ride took place, so I had to do some research on my own. I came across an Only In Your State article that listed 5 different pumpkin train rides to take in Wisconsin, but to me, these two sounded the coolest...

1. The Great Pumpkin Train at National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin

Not only can your family take a ride on a really cool train to a pumpkin patch where you can pick out your own pumpkin, but this event also features live entertainment, games, crafts, trick-or-treating, and other really cool, historic trains and attractions!

The Great Pumpkin Train will only run for one more day in 2022, Saturday, October 15, so you better get tickets now while you still can!

2. Riverside and Great Northern Railway Pumpkin Train in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin

This pumpkin train will take you on a ride through beautiful fall colors in the Wisconsin Dells with many fun & festive photo ops along the way. Kids under 12 will even a free pumpkin or gourd. The train runs every Saturday and Sunday in October and tickets are available here.
