Over our many years of operation, we have learned that customer service and close communication with group leaders is essential in the creation of a successful excursion. With that in mind, we recommend that all group leaders seek assistance from our experienced Group Sales staff. Contact with sales staff will allow group leaders to purchase train tickets at a discounted group rate, receive special package discounts (ie: steam train, candle-making, gold panning) and make available the extensive knowledge of the Roaring Camp sales team.

Senior Groups and Clubs enjoy Roaring Camp’s historical steam trains, Chuckwagon BBQ and ride through the redwoods. Whether it’s the steam train to Bear Mountain or beach train to Santa Cruz, your seniors will enjoy our old fashion fun of the 1880’s at Roaring Camp.
