The train ventures through rolling hills, farms and forest to reach Sincere Pumpkin Patch. At the pumpkin patch, families can also partake in a variety of fun activities and get their photos taken with Snoopy and Charlie Brown. Families have one hour and 45 minutes to explore the pumpkin patch, take part in activities, take photos and explore Charlie Brown’s Game Alley. Other fun activities include cornhole, pumpkin decorating, a football kicking contest, letters to The Great Pumpkin, a costume contest and hay bale wagon rides.


The train and pumpkin experience are based on It’s a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, the classic American prime-time television special from 1966.
