The Mt Rainier Scenic Railroad is currently on Get My Perks with discount tickets to ride the train & admission into the train museum.  You will pay $42 for two tickets for a regular train ride + a museum visit (this is up to a $78 value). That’s just $21/per person! Regular price of tickets for the summer are $39/person, $30 for senior/military/AAA or $19/youth (ages 5-12) or $10 for ages 4 & under. So this is a great deal for this train ride if you have been wanting to ride it to Mt Rainier.  This is now a 2 hour train trip!

This would be a fun trip on your way up to Mt Rainier as it’s right on the way to the Longmire/Paradise area of Mt Rainier. If you have a train enthusiast, they would love this trip, along with the trip to the museum as well!

Our family took a trip a few years ago and here is a review of our experience:

I took my brother, SIL, niece & mom on the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad last summer using a previous discount deal & we all had a great time! It was a great way for them to see some beautiful views of Mt Rainier as well as for the kids to enjoy the old steam locomotive train ride. We also made a short little stop at a lake for about 30 minutes & walked around for a bit & then got back on the train for the ride back. I think the whole trip was around 1 1/2 – 2 hours (edited – it looks like this is now a full 2 hour train ride). For this discounted price, it was a great deal for us & something fun to take our out-of-town guests to show them the area & Mt Rainier.

(This did not include the train museum at the time, though – so that is a nice addition! We haven’t checked it out but it sounds like it’s a fun visit)
