Hoist your sails for a show that truly puts the "arr!" in garden! The ever-popular Garden Railroad in our South Conservatory has been reinvented, inviting guests on an adventure through a tropical world of Treasure Island. The whole family will delight in searching for treasure, learning pirate jokes and interacting with our popular miniature trains as they chug through an island filled with live plants and whimsical pirate props. You won't be able to resist pressing every button to make exciting animated features and sound effects come to life. It'll shiver your timbers and tickle your funny bone!

Animatronics for Garden Railroad are created by Maintenance Technician Paul Widek.
