Ohios Friendliest Train Robbery

6:00 pm Departure. Our ever-popular Ohios Friendliest Train Robbery trains are family-friendly and feature a group of bandits on horseback making an attempt to rob the train. Now, before you think, -Rob the train...-, we distribute play money to everyone before the train departs. The -robbers- then come through and collect the play money once they are able to stop the train. Guns are used but only with blanks, and we maintain a safe atmosphere for everyone aboard. These trains tend to sell out quickly, so make sure you reserve your seat as early as possible. We have three Robbery Trains scheduled for 2017: June 17th, July 8th, and August 5th. Duration of ride: Approximately two hours.

Cost: $17-21 per person

Hocking Halloween Campout

Join with the Haunted Hocking HHIT team as they search for the unexplained at Ash Cave or try your hand at Pumpkin decorating. Registered campers and cabin guests can enjoy a hayride, a family fun spooky movie, site judging, and trick or treat at Old Mans Cave campground. Regular camping cabin fees apply. Ever heard the ghostly woman's cry by Rose Lake at the Hocking Hills State Park campground. Or did you hear about the brakeman who was killed at Moonville Tunnel and who is still said to be swinging his lantern along the abandoned train tracks. What better way to savor the feeling of a good ghost story around the campfire than to jump right in and investigate it. Using an EMF detector to find out if that funny sound was a local bat or. . . maybe a ghost. Hocking Hills State Park Naturalist, Pat Quackenbush, local professional biologists, naturalists and ghost hunters, Haunted Hocking Investigation Team, take to the trails to try to demystify some of the local legends and ghost stories of the region. From owl calling to using night vision tools, visitors get a hands-on experience using authentic ghosts hunting equipment. And don't think for one minute everything has ever been explained on the hike. . . there have been more than a few things that are just simply left to mystery.

11:00 am Departure. 2:00 pm Departure. 6:00 pm Departure on Saturday Dec 2nd and Dec 9th Only. Our longest-running annual event, the Santa Train has been a long-standing family tradition for over three decades. These ever-popular trains begin Saturday, November 25th and continue each Saturday and Sunday through Sunday, December 17th. Two trains depart the Nelsonville Depot round-trip to East Logan each Saturday and Sunday during that time at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. We will also have an evening departure time of 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 2nd and 9th. Each train features the same theme–Santa gets on board the train and visits with each child as the train traverses the historic (and with any luck, snow-covered) Hocking River Valley. Each coach is decorated, heated, Christmas music plays throughout the train over the audio system, and after Santas visit, each child receives a special candy cane treat. Make sure your child or grandchild brings his or her list to share with Santa. These are incredibly popular and do tend to sell out, so order as early as possible to secure your seat.
