Sounds of laughter and excitement echo across the vistas of Northern Ontario as the rhythm of Rainbow Train beats northward from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario through picturesque rock formations and undisturbed forests.


The fun begins immediately as you step onto the train and are greeted by your host, internationally acclaimed celebrity female impersonator and comedian, Timothy Murphy (An Evening at La Cage) who will bring to life iconic women of the stage and screen to accompany you on your excursion. The mood is lighthearted and welcoming. After just moments you realize you can’t recall the last time you were sore from smiling.


Sipping your favourite cocktail, the energetic buzz of mingling passengers captivates you. You meet new friends. Lively conversations follow along pristine lakes and rivers as the boxcars dance toward their destination.


A crowd gathers and the hum of voices fades into song. Live music fills your car. Harmonies of guitars and performances by award-winning Northern Ontario recording artists Frank Deresti and Jay Case (Frank Deresti and the Lake Effect) and featuring their collaborations with celebrated local singer/songwriter Shannon Moan (The Shannon Moan Trio) allow you to escape further away from civilization. You find yourself living in the moment and moving to the infectious sounds.


Live entertainment flows with the train along your journey and features mind bending, interactive magic from renowned magician Ryan McFarling along with continued fun from your hostesses, Joan Rivers, Carol Channing, and Gina Lola-International-Bridge-ida.

As Rainbow Train twists through the landscape you are connected to the region and its rich history through GPS triggered commentary. Your imagination is captivated by stories of the land’s pioneers and those who call it home.


The fun continues and you are presented with a delicious themed lunch. You laugh uninhibited, have drinks and dine with your friends as the scenery washes over you.


Travelling 500 feet down to the Agawa Canyon floor, you exit the train at Canyon Park and let loose in the splendor of nature. Enjoy more live performances; explore hiking trails and flowing waterfalls with friends; lay a blanket beside the sparkling Agawa River and take in its beauty; or get away and climb to the scenic lookout to steal a special moment.


When you depart from Agawa Canyon, the fun doesn’t stop. Enjoy more drinks, entertainment and lively conversation as you travel back toward Sault Ste. Marie.


The memories you create will be your gold at the end of the Rainbow Train. Don’t miss out. Get your tickets now and come along for the most unique and exciting train adventure of a lifetime.
