The ride begins outside the Brockville Visitor’s Centre, and the train takes its riders for a 15-minute loop around the city’s waterfront.

Tickets must be bought in advance and cars are limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Aquatarium suggests booking some time in advance, since rides have been sold out every day since it opened on Friday.

The Aquatarium itself opened last Saturday.
