Irvine Park Railroad Celebrates 16 years of Family Fun!

Are you looking for something fun to do with the family this coming weekend? Why not head over to Irvine Regional Park and join the 16th anniversary celebration with Irvine Park Railroad. This coming weekend, February 25-26, Irvine Park Railroad will be rolling back their prices to those of 1996 when they first welcomed Orange County families. This includes $2 train rides, concessions, carnival games, and much more. Face painting and panning for gold will be $4. Plus, everyone gets free balloons! Who doesn't love a balloon?

My family loves going to Irvine Park Railroad for special events throughout the year like the Easter Eggstravaganza, Pumpkin Patch and Christmas Train, so we are really looking forward to helping them celebrate 16 years of family fun. I don't think you are ever too old or too young to enjoy a ride on the train or a balloon.

If you are new to the Irvine Park Railroad family, then this is something you won't want to miss - more than just a day at the park - it's a day of creating memories for the entire family.

Cotton candy, corn dogs, popcorn, ice cream, and of course the train rides. Sounds fun right?

Did you know that Irvine Regional Park has been around for over 100 years? Irvine Park Railroad will take you on a 12-minute narrated ride through the beautiful park where you will see lakes, peacocks, and trees that will make any photographer reach for their camera.

Also, once you are inside the park don't forget about the Wheel Fun Rentals - bike and paddle boat rentals or the OC Zoo (which is my son's favorite stop)

What I love most about visiting Irvine Regional Park and the Irvine Park Railroad is the family appeal.

There is truly something for everyone.

Irvine Park Railroad is located inside of Irvine Regional Park (at 1 Irvine Park Road, Orange 92869) and is open daily at 10 a.m. The parking fee to enter the park is $5 per vehicle.
