Attraction details
Owner description: Guests aboard the excursion train enjoy a nearly 2 hour trip along the Tennessee River. Beginning the journey in Downtown Knoxville, the Rambler travels past historical sites to the “Three Rivers Trestle” where the French Broad and Holston Rivers join to form the Tennessee River. Along the route, the Three Rivers Rambler passes by beautiful farmland, Knoxville’s first settlement area, and several quarries that were mined to build our nation’s Capital. The uniformed conductor and volunteer staff are well-versed in the local history and welcome questions during the 11-mile trip.

“Choo Choo great time!”
Reviewed November 8, 2008

We took our 3 year old son on the pumpkin express in October. We had a fantastic time. The weather was gorgeous and we sat out in the open car. My son wore his costume, and the staff handed out candy on the train ride. It was really a great experience. He still talks about the train ride, and he wants to go back for the Christmas express. The only drawback was that there were not much choice in souvenirs.

Hello, Thank You for your review! We are glad your son had a good time back in 2008. Our Hoot N' Holler Express trains have grown in many ways and now include live music as well. We have also recently opened our Depot, which has allowed us to expand our souvenirs and create a easier boarding experience.
