Family fun at the Boothbay Railway Village with games, kranky kar rides, inflatables, food and treats. Live performance by Wacky Chad at noon and 2pm and live music by Dr. Zog. Museum admission is included with your Family Fest ticket. Be sure to explore the two dozen exhibits including more than 60 antique automobiles, trucks, sleighs & carriages and huge model railroad – so big it has its own building!

Steam train tickets are an additional $5 per person and will be available at the door. The train will run every thirty minutes starting at 10:30 am and ending with a 3:30 pm trip. Children under 3 and Museum Members always ride free.

In addition to all of the above, we will have rascally relays, obstacle course, laser tag, clown/balloon artist, archery, inflatables and crafts!

Family Entertainment Details

Rascally Relays. A company picnic staple. Sometimes we wonder who has more fun: the participants or the audience. Classic competitions include sack races, water balloon toss, ball between the knees race, ball-in-spoon races and tug of war!  Winners get bragging rights, and prizes to boot!  

Wild One Junior Obstacle Course. This fun roller coaster obstacle packs in plenty of ups and downs with tunnel crawls, squeeze plays, tire runs, climbing walls, tackle dummies and slides!   

Ultimate Laser Tag. We’ve kissed the days of indoor mall laser tag goodbye! After setting up what looks like a paint-ball arena, complete with colorful bunkers of different shapes and sizes, we let your guests loose. It’s active, it’s new, and quite frankly, it’s awesome.

Clown/Balloon Artist. This prankster will interact with guests and entertain all ages with jokes, antics and tricks, all while turning simple balloons into colorful caricatures, animals, and other fun figures right before your eyes!

Caricaturist. A professional artist will create an original cartoon featuring an exaggerated interpretation of your features!


Challenges for teens and adults

Leaps n’ Bounds Interactive Course. Participants must attempt to cross a series of four inflatable red balls above the biggest ball pit you’ve ever seen in order to wipe out the competition! (But don’t worry if you fall off! This ball pit is a super-soft, cushioned jump zone!)           

Archery Target Shoot. We’ll provide safety tipped arrows, bows and targets, and let guests fight it out to determine the most accurate shot! 

Fun for kids

Youth Inflatables. Bounce houses, small slides, crawl-throughs or combo pieces, the bottom line is this: they’re just perfect for the young ones out there. Mom and Dad will love how tired out the kids are at the end of the day!

Spin Art. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This activity proves it. Drop some paint onto a postcard and let the g-forces take over. A quick spin and you’re left with an abstract design that’s perfect for the fridge!

Sand Art. Shapes of all kinds come to life as your guests peel, dunk, shake and repeat into our colorful sands! 

Temporary Tattoos. Yes, parents, they come off. We promise. But for one afternoon you can be the coolest Mom or Dad ever!

Suncatcher Craft. Kids love adding their own color to these fun-to-paint suncatchers! When you're done, hang them in a window and let the sun shine through! Includes a variety of designs (approx. 4-5”) and all necessary supplies for a color creation.

Animal Mask Making Craft. Children will have a wild time making their own animal foam mask. We provide all the parts and pieces to create a jungle face worthy of a roar!
