RAIL EXPLORERS: LAS VEGAS DIVISION NOW CLOSED FOR THE SEASON. SEE YOU AGAIN IN THE FALL! Enjoy an exhilarating 4 mile downhill ride through the desert on our pedal powered railbikes from the Nevada State Railroad Museum to Railroad Pass. Bring a snack and a drink to enjoy during the 20 minute break at our rail-side picnic area. Your ticket includes a ride back to the top of the hill in one of the Museum's historic trains, and free entry to the museum. Please allow 2 hours for this tour. You will see the hills surrounding Boulder City and old abandoned mine shafts. Boulder City is the center of adventure and you will see skydivers soaring high above, and be minutes away from historic Boulder City. This fun, outdoor activity can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities. Great for groups of friends, families, couples young and old, corporate events or gatherings of any kind!

I had a most unique and fun time. I had no idea there was anything like this. I'm a reasonably active 65 year old and this was not work at all, just fun and fresh air.

The owner took the time to speak to our party. He also offered us parasols because it was so hot. I wish the route was a little longer. But all good things must come to an end. All of us enjoyed it!

This was a fun and different activity. Most of the time it was a slight decline and you didn't have to pedal much. But the last little bit had a little hill that required some effort. The only drawback . . . it went by...More

Unexpected trip to the train museum, glad we went there. Pedal cars were a blast to ride. Most of it was downhill, so it was pretty easy. Still good exercise, though. I would definitely do this again. I want to try the one in the...More
