Based in Stettler, Alberta we offer exciting one-day adventures on a vintage passenger train. Different themed trips are available throughout the season. They include murder mysteries, seniors’ specials, lots of family events, live stage shows, teddy bear specials and the Polar Express©. Join us for a day full of family friendly activities that are truly different and interesting. Our goal is to put smiles on your faces.
At some point during your excursion the train will likely be brought to a halt and robbed by the dreaded outlaw "Reynolds Raiders". Luckily the Canadian Métis hero, Gabriel Dumont, is there to stop them. After a short but furious gun battle, the money the outlaws took from passengers is retrieved. Since it's impossible to tell who the money belongs to, it is donated to various children's charities. In our first 30 years Alberta Prairie has donated in excess of $100,000 to various causes.
All trains depart and return to Stettler, Alberta.
The destination for Alberta Prairie summer excursions is Big Valley. The exception being the Pumpkin Fest and The Polar Express.
Stettler, Alberta is straight east of Red Deer on Hwy 12. Alberta Prairie's station and passenger loading area is located at 4611- 47 Avenue in Stettler AB which is in the south-east part of town. Head for the only burgundy-coloured grain elevator and you will end up right at the station.
Fantastic, enthusiastic team members. Great entertainment, food and experience. We enjoyed this immensely and hope to try one of the other packages when the kids are older. Big Valley was absolutely hospitable as well. We would definitely do this again! Well worth the cost. Bathrooms and facilities were clean.- Amanda B -
