Celebrate the end of summer this Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 3 – 6, with Rail Explorers Las Vegas, which offers guests several different tours to choose from, including the Southwest Summer Soaker, Southwest Ramble, Sunset Rail Bike Ride and Neon Lights Night Tour.
The year-round, all-ages, outdoor-adventure attraction featuring pedal-powered rail bikes is enjoyable for people of all ages—even family dogs under 70 pounds can ride the rails.
The Southwest Summer Soaker offers an optional chance to cool off with a surprise water spray-down by Rail Explorers staff along the tracks. Riders taking the Southwest Ramble will enjoy a picturesque pedal-powered daytime ride. For visitors wishing to ride the rails later in the day, the Sunset Rail Bike Ride includes scenic views as the sun fades behind the Black Mountains and, for the evening crowd, the Neon Lights Night Tour lights up the night as each rail bike is lit up in neon. Guests are encouraged to bring their best black light attire and glow sticks.
Guests pedal the Rail Explorers rail bikes four miles downhill from the Nevada State Railroad Museum to the Railroad Pass picnic area, where they may relax in the signature red Adirondack chairs. Each experience concludes with a ride aboard a historic train back to the tour’s starting point.
