I took the Pumpkin Patch train with my daughter and her fiance. It was a decent way to spend an afternoon. On the way back, we stopped at a pumpkin patch so the kids could get off and buy pumpkins. It's important to know that...More

My family and I had a great experience. We traveled through some of the most scenic horse country in the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky. I would have given it a five stars but the train broke down. What was to be a hour and half...More

This train ride is a joke. My kids were excited to take a train ride but this place was a major let down. The only view you have is trees and rocks. For 90 minutes. There was about 2 seconds of seeing horses, then back...More

Our family (including two elementary aged children) enjoyed our trip on the railroad on Father's Day, 2018. Dad's pay half price and I believe they offer half price tickets on Mother's Day and other days throughout the season. It was a very hot day so...More

Loved the museum & gift shop. Everyone was very friendly. Going back to ride the train when they have Civil War Day. There are many special days during the year.

Nice scenery for the most part when trees aren't covering everything. Expect more than 90 minutes of time. We arrived 30 minutes before as instructed, boarded and left the station on time at 2:00pm. We arrived back at the station after 4:00pm. Time is exceeded...More

The Bluegrass Railroad museum is small but has some very interesting exhibits. The train ride lasted about 90 minutes, but a 30 minute break was an opportunity to get off the train, take some pictures of the Young's High Bridge, and for the kids to...More

Waited an hour to take the train ride. Didn't leave the station on time as the personnel seemed more interested in filling up the cars than serving the ones already there. Ride was slow, hot, and no photo ops since the "scenery" was nothing but...More
