White Pass Railroad Adventure: Board a private vintage rail car and join an unforgettable journey with your costumed guide aboard the world-famous narrow gauge White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad to the 2,865-ft. White Pass summit. Enjoy a toast and snack at the summit and a rollicking good time on the way back down to Skagway.

Sled Dogs Demonstration: Meet canine athletes that have run the world-famous Iditarod sled dog race. Hear about the history of this breed, interact with the dogs, and watch them in action as a musher hooks the dogs up for a fast practice lap around the track. The next generation of puppies are there for you to cuddle and hold.

Gold Fever Fun: Your costumed guide who “lives” in 1898 takes you back in history to reenact the life of 100,000 prospectors during the Gold Rush. Feel the lure of gold and experience how to extract paydirt, help sluice it, and assay the results. Learn the art of gold panning with a humorous and educational show. Practice your technique in heated water troughs. Gold is guaranteed and so is a good time!
