Irvine Park Railroad
1 Irvine Park Road
Orange, CA 92869
The Easter egg hunt at the Irvine Park Railroad is a pretty exciting hunt. This ticketed event features eggs filled with candy, stickers, free train tickets, and more, and because the hunts are broken down by age and limited in participants (arrive early!), all the kids have plenty of chances to score loads of eggs. Additional activities include photos with the Easter Bunny, Moon Bounce houses, a hay ride through the spring flowers of the park, cookie decorating, carnival games, face painting, and of course rides around the park on board the train.
