About this event

Join us for a Seashore Fan Favorite -- Ice Cream Night! Held every Wednesday in July and August from 5:30PM-7:30PM, guests are treated to a special evening trolley ride on our heritage railroad through the museum's campus AND an ice cream sundae with all the fixin's!

Tickets are $10/each (children two and under are free; we'll give you boarding passes for your young ones when you check in at the Museum Store upon arrival). Admission includes the trolley ride and ice cream sundae.

Trolleys will depart at 5:30PM, 6PM, and 6:30PM. Example: if your ticket reads 5:30 - 6:30, your trolley leaves at 5:30. Your ice cream sundae will be after your trolley returns to the Visitor's Center. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your ticket's boarding time so you are ready to go at your ticketed departure time. (Walk-ins should arrive by 6:30PM to participate in the event).

Per TSA security directive 1582/84-21-01, masks are required for everyone ages five and above while on the trolleys regardless of vaccination status. Masks are no longer required elsewhere in the Museum.

Because Ice Cream Night is a fan-favorite, we encourage you to purchase tickets in advance. Eventbrite ticketholders are guaranteed a spot on the trolley during the ride you've selected. Tickets are also available at the door but you will be seated after Eventbrite ticketholders (or you may need to wait for the next ride/s to be accommodated).

Do you or a guest in your group have mobility challenges when it comes to navigating trolley steps? Seashore Trolley Museum now has a Mobilift to help you access some of our operating trolleys! If you or a group member would like to use our lift, let us know when you arrive.

This season we're giving back! As a nonprofit, we are so grateful for all of the support we receive from our local community and want to pay the support forward. We've selected 8 other local nonprofits who will benefit from Ice Cream Night in 2021 too! See the full list below.

Each nonprofit will receive their own Ice Cream Night Event and co-host with Seashore Trolley Museum. One their night, the nonprofit will receive 50% of all proceeds! This means that the nonprofit benefactor on the evening you purchase tickets for will receive $5 for every ticket sold to support their mission. Some nonprofits plan to have an outreach table and/or sell other goodies at their event to raise even more awareness and funds. We'll post more information here and on our website Event Calendar when they confirm their plans.

Refund Policy: Ticketholders may receive a full refund up to 24 hours in advance of the event. Trolleys will operate rain or shine, but if there's a thunderstorm we will delay the effected trolley ride/s until it passes (and serve ice cream to guests first). If the weather is so inclement that we need to cancel a ride/s or the whole event, Eventbrite ticketholders will have two options: Take a rain date ticket for a future 2021 Ice Cream Night event, or donate the amount of your ticket purchase to Seashore and the benefiting nonprofit of that evening (and you will receive a donation receipt for your taxes). If you pick to come back on a future Ice Cream Night date, the nonprofit benefactor of the original night you purchased tickets for will still receive 50% of your groups' ticket proceeds. We'll communicate with all impacted ticketholders if a weather scenario actually occurs this season.
