Rail Explorers, the year-round, all-ages, outdoor-adventure attraction featuring pedal-powered rail bikes, celebrates the season with festive, holiday-themed tours. The experience makes an exhilarating activity for families with children, a date night, or anyone seeking to establish a new holiday tradition this season. Guests booking evening tours from Nov. 23 through Dec. 31 will be greeted by the Rail Explorer elves and receive cookies, candy canes, hot chocolate and/or hot apple cider.
Located in historic Boulder City, Nevada—just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip en route to Hoover Dam—Rail Explorers offers exhilarating, guided excursions in two- or four-seat rail bikes along the same tracks used during construction of the dam. Day and evening tour times are available and schedules vary by day; check the website for daily times. They will be closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Prices for a tandem rail bike for two start at $85; a quad rail bike for four guests starts at $150.
Rail Explorers Las Vegas tours include three memorable options, including the Southwest Ramble, a four-mile downhill pedal-powered daytime ride; the Sunset Tour, a picturesque downhill ride in the evening as the sun sets behind the River Mountains; and the Evening Lantern Ride, a one-of-a-kind experience illuminated by the glow from the moon and stars. All rides start at the Nevada State Railroad Museum and continue downhill to Railroad Pass. Each tour also includes a nostalgic ride back to the top of the hill in one of the museum’s historic trains, along with free museum entry. Knowledgeable guides lead every Rail Explorers tour, ensuring guests enjoy not only the majestic desert scenery, but also learn fascinating insights along the way. Rail bikes provide a truly distinctive way to explore this extraordinarily scenic and historic area.
