The Whippany Railway Museum is happy to announce its next Tea with a Princess event this June 26th! This event will take place partly on our vintage Jersey Coast club car and will be set as an elegant but wacky fun tea party. Our guests of honor this time will be Alice and the Mad Hatter!
If your child has a costumes/dresses they are encouraged to wear them as we regularly have a few princes and princesses in each session.
Each seating will be approximately 45min long and will include a meet and greet photo opportunity so bring your camera, plenty of time interacting with the characters on board the train, fun activities and games, and your child will get to take home their very own “silly sippy tea cup” as souvenir of the day.
Your ticket also gives you admission for the museum building where we have model trains inside and our gift shop. The princess events are very popular and sell out QUICKLY! we plan on having different themes throughout the summer with different characters
Seating’s will be:
Each seating is limited to 20 children to ensure everyone has a great experience. It is $20 for Each Child, and every child ticket includs the entry of ONE adult. A limited number of additional adult tickets will be available for a $5 charge due to size constraints and will be capped at the discretion of the train crew.
THIS EVENT IS NOT A TRAIN RIDE AND WILL HELD RAIN OR SHINE!
