Sensory Friendly Fridays

Events

July 5, 12, 19, 26

New for 2019 we are offering regularly-scheduled departures for children on the spectrum.   The rides will depart from our main station in North Conway Village at 4:00 p.m. on each Friday in July, using our rail-diesel car, the Millie.  It will travel through the Pudding Pond conservation area along the Redstone Branch of our line, returning to the station at approximately 5:00 p.m.

The Millie is air-conditioned, so there will be no open windows, and all crossings will be hand-flagged to reduce or eliminate the need for the train horn’s use.  Travel speed is about 10 mph.  Each child will be given a gift bag with quiet activities (coloring books, temporary tattoos, etc.).

Seating is limited, so advance reservations are highly recommended.

FARES:
Adults: $19.00
Children (4-12): $13.00
