About Verde Canyon Railroad

A perfect venue for vows and reception, Verde Canyon Railroad offers a lovely wilderness excursion into an area of extreme natural beauty. Following the curves of the Verde River, the train travels 20 miles up through a red rock canyon, full of breathtaking geology, abundant wildlife, lush greenery, and Native-American ruins, on vintage rails aboard vintage train cars.

Most wedding/vow-renewal ceremonies take place on an adjoining open-air viewing car stopped over a historic trestle and steep canyon at a panoramic overlook 35 minutes up river from the depot.

There is something wonderful to be seen each season and the train runs year-round. The trip is approximately 4 hours, round trip. Private cars may be chartered for events.First class cars seat 24-40 passengers, and the coach car seats 74. Larger groups can charter a series of adjoining cars. Smaller groups of 6 or less can charter our luxury class caboose.

First class includes complimentary champagne toast and hot/cold appetizers. Additional food service available: Full service catering kitchen can create an on-board party menu specific to your requests and budget. Full bar service available.

We can assist in coordinating deliveries with local wedding cake bakers, florists, and share info on area photographers/officiants.

Seasonal special events include Summer Starlight and Fall Color Tours, Ales on Rails, Rhythm on the Rails, Grape Train Escape, Spring in Bloom, Eagle Watch and many more highlights and holidays throughout the year.

    My husband and I could not have been more pleased with this venue. We stressed over and over that we wanted our guests to have an experience. We couldn't find a venue that provided that until we stumbled on the railroad. The service was amazing. The food was delightful (and affordable!). The car was beautiful! Our guests are still talking about it. I freaking love this place.

    We have decided to have our wedding on the verde canyon railroad. The people there were very knowledgeable & answered all questions we had about the ceremony and ride. Everything looked very nice & set up well. The people also are very friendly & happy to talk about what you want & work together with you on any accommodations you may need or anything. I was very pleased with the look & staff of this place.

    We had our reception aboard the Verde Canyon Railroad and rented out 4 first class cabs for our 120 guests. It was an amazing experience and our guests were raving about it! We were able to use our own stereos to play our wedding playlist in the indoor and outdoor carts and we had a DJ set up in one of the indoor cabs to create a club like atmosphere for the younger crowd. Our guests roamed freely between the carts and had constant smiles on their faces. If you want to create a wedding that no one will ever forget this is such an awesome choice! The staff was so much fun and very responsive, food was excellent (people raved about the rosemary chicken and chicken wings), drinks were yummy and very affordable for guests after our 2 hour open bar ended, and the scenery was something we will never forget! I can't wait to take another ride aboard the railroad and highly recommend if you are looking for a unique destination wedding :)
