The Stanley Park Easter Train is on this Easter long weekend and my family and I went on an egg-citing Easter ride earlier today. The Easter train and fair at Stanley Park is one of Vancouver’s top family-friendly events and runs until Monday, April 17. Here is a recap of our experience aboard the Stanley Park Easter Train:
Tickets are sold in half-hour time slots and are only valid for the date and time shown on the ticket, and are non-refundable. Due to the unpredicatable weather, I didn’t chose to buy tickets ahead of time. Seeing as how the rain had stopped, we went to the train park and bought the tickets onsite. Same-day tickets for sale online close at 8 am. The line for tickets wasn’t long for me but it did grow longer after I had bought them. The earliest ride available was half-an-hour later which wasn’t too bad.
If you’re heading to the Stanley Park Easter Train Sunday or Monday, check out my video below. For the price of $6 per adult and children 3 and above, I thought the train ride was worth it. The displays they put up aren’t as spectacular as the ones from the Halloween Train but it’s a good Easter train ride overall.
Aside from the train, you can also take part in the carnival activities including mini golf, face painting, egg hunt, meeting the Easter Bunny and planting a posy. Carnival tickets are 2 for $5, 3 for $7 or 5 for $10.
