Good train ride for kids

Nice train ride for kids. It is long enough for them to enjoy and short enought that you can enjoy all the fun playground equipment in the Anthem Park

One of the more interesting aspects of the Anthem Community Park. Great fun ride for children and the child at heart.

Hey, I'll tell you that this was fun. We loaded three grandkids and two of their friends into our little RV and headed off to Anthem. In the parking lot of the outlet stores was the tallest Christmas tree in the country, all lit up to help bring the spirit of Christmas in. That it did, but not before dropping... More

I've ridden this train once with my 3 kids in the 7 years living in the area. My wife and kids, maybe 3 times. I like rides so had to try this since it's nearby. Well, just like any ride, it's all about timing. If you see a long line, go to the playground and let your kids play. And... More

The Daisy Mt. railroad is a nice little perk for both the residents and visitors to the planned development community of Anthem, AZ. A scale model railroad & track that takes both little and grown-up kids on a short ride around the Anthem community park. Definitely a must do for parents and grandparents to take the little ones on for... More

The ride is very relaxing around the park and it's fun to wave at the park-goers and enjoy the view. However, for the distance the trip covers compared to the cost of the trip ($3.50 per child/residents) it seems a bit on the pricey side, especially if you have more than one kid in tow.

I do not recommend this place...ever! The train is dirty, the old guy is mean to the kids. The lady inside is nice, but I feel bad for her with that old man. The train broke down on me and I had to walk to my car...hopefully this was a bad day, but I didn't get that feeling:(

This was a fun, little trip in the afternoon. There’s not much to it, buy the price was very reasonable, the train was well-maintained and clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

It's a fun way to entertain grandchildren and even adults who are kids at heart. Everytime the little ones come to visit, we plan to make at least one trip to take the train ride.
