Happy Birthday to the Northern Central Railway turning 7 this year!

Guests will also be able to enjoy large outdoor games like Bowling, Checkers, Connect, Kerplunk, Bean Bag Toss, Corn Hole and Lawn Pong along with a magical performance by Marc Charisse!

Guests are encouraged to explore Seven Valleys!

Outside your window is the beautiful York County and the Heritage Rail Trail, while you enjoy this excursion to Seven Valleys. We will take you back in time to the 1860s when President Lincoln rode these tracks on his way to Gettysburg to deliver his now-famous Gettysburg Address. ALL ABOARD!
