Sacramento RiverTrain excursions delight passengers with toe-thumping songs and entertainment while traveling along the Sacramento River. The Family Fun Train grants ample opportunity for family-folk to fill their fun receptors over the course of three hours. Within the confines of this mobile people-pleaser, strolling musicians serenade passengers with ballads of fun and fancy, and entertainers narrate children's stories to spark imaginations and warn against the perils of self-aware GPS devices. The railway wandering also includes sing-alongs, arts and crafts, and other entertainment for toddlers to teens. For tummies that begin to moan, groan, and subscribe to nihilist philosophies, snacks are available for purchase (not included in the Groupon).
Board the Happy Hour Sunset Special and soothe sound-wave absorbers with live music by Rick Barnes, who serenades audiences with classic rock favorites from past stars and current basalt populations. Passengers can belt their own ballad with karaoke in the lounge car and slick their windpipes with a mug of brew or a glass of wine, sold on special all night (costs not included in today's Groupon).

About Sacramento RiverTrain
Completed in 1911, the Woodland Branch is a 16-mile stretch of railway that connects West Sacramento with Woodland, California. At the branch's peak, passenger trains were running eight times a day, nine times on leap-days, but it all came to an end in 1940 with the start of World War II. The tracks were still used for freight, but it would be more than 60 years before passengers began using the railway again with any frequency. When the scenic stretch of rail was absorbed by the Sierra Railroad Company in 2003, it wasn't long before it took the name Sacramento RiverTrain and began running luxury coaches complete with rattan furniture, wood paneling, and state-of-the-art sound systems. Today, passengers board these trains to savor Sunday brunch, murder-mystery dinners, and other events while train tracks softly clack in the background.
