WHAT: The annual Train Show has long been the Domes’ biggest Show Dome event, and on it rolls … this year’s theme is “Plant-itary Orbits,” an adventure like no other in our galaxy! Running on four tracks totaling 800 feet, G-scale trains traverse the unusual plant orbits of miniature white azalea trees and Vietnamese cypresses, “Headliner Starry Night Burgundy” petunias, and into the deep blue space of the pansy matrix. Make it your mission to experience the awesome flora and miniature rolling stock which is the Domes Train Show!

The Train Show also includes ‘Sticker Wednesdays’ – visitors on any Wednesday during the show will receive a free sticker. While supplies last.
