In the month of October, every Train is The Great Pumpkin Train. ride along the Delaware River during the most beautiful time of the year. Disembark at The Corn Maze/ Sunquehanna Mine ( Snyders Station) and spen 2 hours at the mine panning for gem stones you can take home and / or take on the challenge of our corn maze.
if you do not have the time for the Corn Maze and Mine, just take the beautiful train ride.
Not to worry, every train stops at the Pumpkin Patch on the way home.
Every child is welcome to get off the train and pick a pumpkin for free!
The pumpkin patch sits in a beautiful glade in front of the century old Carpentersville Lime Kilns. The lime kilns are not only the oldest but also the largest left in existence in New Jersey, dating to before the Revolutionary War!
The Susquehanna Mining Company tour is a must for every passenger.
At The Mine you will learn the hilarious and tragic history of the mine. One lucky miner will actually push the plunger and blow the mine! After the short tour each Miner will be presented a basic bag of mining "rough". We will teach you to pan for real gem stones you can take home!
On site we also have the mine store with a great selection of gifts and minerals.
You can buy both Mine and Maze tickets on site if by chance you did not purchase them in advance.
Feel free to make the most of your stay. You will be on site for one and a half hours so there is plenty of time for a nice picnic! We have a beautiful picnic grove under 3 gigantic pine trees just adjacent to the mining activity and Mine Store gift shop
Play the game where getting lost is half the fun. We have two mazes ( different designs each year) with two different games to play. Play the numbers game where you search for the check points, 6 in each maze. Once you find the check point, you punch out the coresponding kernel of corn on your maze map. Get 1 to 6 in the small maze and or 7 to 12 in the large maze and you win!
