Trains of the Wild West

Ride the Orange Blossom Cannonball as it heads into no man’s land where danger lurks around every curve. Climb aboard the famous movie train to journey back to a time of cowboys and desperados, and the lawmen that try to keep them both in line. This 40-minute roundtrip show features our 1907 Wood Burning Steam engine that has been used in such movies as “3:10 to Yuma” and “True Grit.”
