"Royal Oak Express" - Young and old alike can take a ride on the "Royal Oak Express"- a 19th century replica train inspired by authentic railroad tradition.

"Royal Oak Carousel"  - Hop on the "Royal Oak Carousel" and round up one of the 14 horses or take a seat in the chariot as you listen to old fashioned calliope music.

Playground - Children love our large play group toys including a John Deer tractor, fire engine, Noah's Ark, plus full size Doll (play) Houses.  Sit and relax on a bench or picnic table as your children enjoy the play area or meander over to the snack shop for a hot cup of cider or coffee and a cider donut!  The Playground is free.

Orchard Tours - Royal Oak Farm Orchard Tours are both fun and educational for young and old alike.  This is a great way to get a history of our orchard and see the whole orchard operation.  These Orchard Tours are slightly different than our School Tours and are designed for those who desire that extra special additional experience while at Royal Oak Farm Orchard! Orchard Tours are available for groups by reservation only Monday-Friday and run continually for everyone on Saturdays and Sundays.  Cost of the Orchard Tour is a $3.00 Entertainment Token.

Snack Shop - Our snack shop provides a variety of menu items for your eating pleasure, including our new frozen yogurt! It is located in the Entertainment area near the petting zoo. It will be open Saturdays/Sundays and holidays beginning Labor Day through Columbus Day. Entertainment Tokens are available at the Snack Shop and Token Booth (Saturdays/Sundays only).
