The Great Train Robbery

We will see you next year!

“The Jesse James Experience”

October 17, 2020

Jesse and Frank James and their cohorts have made headlines across America. Not long ago, their first train robbery netted a modest haul, but their boldness shocked the public! Law enforcement believe the James brothers are headed to the east coast to carry out another heist. They’re notorious, they’re dangerous, and they’re on the nation’s most wanted list…and now they’re headed this way!

The United States Express Company has asked the Strasburg Rail Road to carry a large cache of gold bullion destined for the US Mint in Philadelphia. It’s up to the train crew and able-bodied passengers to keep an eye out for suspicious characters and to help protect the valuable cargo while it is on its unique journey to the mainline!

**Want to take your experience to the next level? A select number of “Event Participant” tickets are available on each accommodation. The Event Participants will be incorporated into the story and become part of the action!

All real money “donated” to our Jesse and Frank James will support the Clinic for Special Children!
