CT Open House Day

Kids Ride Free – Saturday, June 11, 2016

We’re thrilled to be participating in the the 12th Annual Open House Day on Saturday, June 11, 2016 with a “Kids Ride Free” Special Offer. Children ages 11 and under qualify for this special offer, and must be accompanied by an adult passenger with a valid Connecticut driver’s license. Seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Open House Day is a great way for you to experience all the state has to offer and to encourage you to become Connecticut Ambassadors who take pride in sharing your new discoveries with visiting family and friends. The annual event is coordinated by the Connecticut Office of Tourism, a division of the Department of Economic & Community Development.

Essex Steam Train & Riverboat is delighted to share this Open House Day event with the residents of Connecticut. The purpose of the “Kids Ride Free” offering is to encourage Connecticut residents to rediscover, or experience for the first time, the history, beauty, and excitement of the Essex Steam Train & Riverboat’s sightseeing journey. We’re inviting Connecticut families to experience this wonderful treasure that exists right outside their backdoors – – the only steam train and riverboat connection in the country. We’re also inviting them to share all that Essex Steam Train & Riverboat has to offer with visiting family and friends this summer.
