Private Parties

No cell phone service, no internet invasion and no cleanup after the party. Instead, we indulge your senses with crisp canyon air, meandering river and glorious red rock formations all serenaded by classic railroad tunes and the clickety-clack of wheels along the tracks of this historic wilderness route. Dance together to “The Locomotion” on an open-air car. Cheer as the train passes through the darkness of the 680-ft tunnel.

Groups may arrange for a customized banquet luncheon on board, tailored to your taste and budget.

Let the Verde Canyon Railroad staff show your family, friends or employees rail hospitality with attention to every detail.  Think of us for your next reunion, corporate function or holiday party. We guarantee good service and a good time, every time.
