Duration of ride: Approximately two hours Book NowReturn to top EASTER BUNNY TRAIN & EGG HUNT The popular Easter Bunny Train is a sell out every year! It is a newer tradition in the Hocking Valley, and it has become a favorite of kids of all ages. We have two trains that depart on Saturday, April 20th: one at 11:00 a.m. and the second at 3:00 p.m. Each train travels past Haydenville, before returning to Nelsonville. Along the way back, the train will stop at the Easter Bunny’s secret hiding place where the egg hunt will take place! Areas for different age groups will be set up, and at the announcement to go, all of the kids will take off through their assigned areas and collect Easter eggs. Inside the eggs will be prizes and candy to be picked up at the prize tent. Once all of the activities are completed, everyone will re-board the train for the remainder of the trip back to the Nelsonville Depot. Tickets for children are the same price across each category. But they are broken up into age groups to help us properly place everyone in the appropriate egg hunt location. If you have questions, feel free to contact our call center at 855-32DEPOT.
