The miniature train at Skyline Caverns

See also

Skyline Caverns, located near Front Royal, Virginia, may not be the largest or more popular caves in the U.S., but it features some of the most unique stalagmite and stalactite formations that are not found in any other cave in the world. Although the caverns are the main attraction, other attractions include a mirror maze and a miniature train.
The miniature train, also known as the Skyline Arrow, is a train that takes you through famous miniature versions of the Horseshoe Curve, Apache Flats and you even pass through Boothill Tunnel. It is a ten minutes ride that takes a few laps around many bends. It will be an adventure for any railroad enthusiast whether you’re a child or a full sized adult.
Although the caverns are open all year round, the miniature train only runs from Spring to Fall weather permitting. The cost is only $4.00 for everyone three and over and children under three are free. After a trip through the caverns, it is a great way to compliment your day.
Skyline Caverns is located on U.S. 340 about one mile south of Front Royal, Virginia and south of the northern entrance to Skyline Drive (Shenandoah National Park). It is a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can get information on the hours, rates and directions at
