All aboard! The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad is preparing to hit the tracks for its summer season.

Opening day for the railroad is Saturday May 1. Tickets for May and June are on sale now. The public rides will run through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park three days a week (Friday-Sunday) for the month of May, and will move to five days a week (Wednesday-Sunday) starting in June.

“We look forward to welcoming our guests and volunteers back on the train,” said CVSR President and CEO Joe Mazur. “We have an exciting season planned that includes the debut of The Cleveland Dinner and Event Train and the Explorer program.”

Also picking back up this summer is the Cleveland Dinner and Event Train. The outing will combine dinner and drinks with murder mysteries. It begins Friday May 7 and runs every Friday through the summer.

“The Dinner Train was incredibly popular when we introduced it in 2019,” said CVSR President and CEO Joe Mazur. “Our beverage and event excursions continue to be a destination for people seeking one-of-kind experiences. Now, every Friday, our historic train becomes a venue where guests can choose from several excursions to create a memorable experience.” 

CVSR will still be enforcing COVID-19 protocols and will operate at 50% capacity this year to keep employees and visitors safe.
