Ride the Pumpkin Express with Mt.Rainier Scenic Railroad Rides Kids get to pick a pumpkin at the end of the first stage. Tickets are a spendy 22.00-26.00 Pricey, but definitely fun for train lovers. You can read our review here. Be sure to read the comments for more input from readers. Note that the MRSR does come up on deal sites frequently, though you can only use the paid value on special rides. But, if you would just be in it for the train ride, and don’t care whether it’s a, “Pumpkin Express,” you may want to hold off for a future deal. KWIM?
