“All Aboard” At Cass Scenic RR State Park

Cass, WV – After its success in April 2009, Cass Scenic Railroad State Park is bringing back it’s “All Abord” gift card program. Through the program, West Virginia State Park Gift Card purchase this month of $100 or greater earns a free train ticket to Whittaker Station at Cass Scenic Railroad State Park.

The state park gift card must be purchased online at wvstateparks.com or by calling 304-558-2764 in order to receive the All Aboard ticket with your gift card and packet. Gift cards purchased at state parks are not eligible for the All Aboard tickets. West Virginia State Parks gift cards can be redeemed at any state park for lodging, restaurant meals, cabin and cottage rentals, golf play and cart rental and at campgrounds with electronic card terminals.

To qualify, the gift card purchase value must be $100 or greater. For example, if a card is purchased with a value of $225, two tickets will be included. If the purchase is for four separate gift cards of $125 each, there will be four tickets included. Individual card values less than $100 are not eligible, and the All Aboard ticket for Cass is only valid for one-time use from June through September 19th of this year.

If you’ve already been to Whittaker Station or just want to pick another destination, holders of the All Aboard ticket may apply the ticket value toward a trip to Bald Knob or Spruce by paying the difference of the Whittaker Station ticket cost. All Aboard tickets may also be upgraded to reserved seat status with payment of the additional fare. However, the complimentary ticket is not available for use with dinner/special train cost.

The season at Cass Scenic Railroad State Park opens on May 28th. To get the park’s full schedule of train excursions, you can visit them online at cassrailroad.com or call 304-456-4300.
