Took a friend's two small children on the "Pumpkin Train" This was the regular length train ride but with three Halloween themed actors who entertained the kids with song and dance. It was a hit

We like the old fashioned train ride. Workers were awesome! A must for families of all ages. Especially the Great pumpkin train.

The train ride was awesome and not too long even for a 2 year and a 3 year old. The only issue is because it's so old there's no air conditioning and that made the ride kind of hot and it wasn't the hottest day...More

Waste of time and money. Slow, like 10 mph tops. Scenery obstructed by brush the whole trip. Screaming toddlers. Give me my 90 minutes back.

We dressed up ourselves. We brought cowboy hats and bandanas. They had characters on the train that gave out "money" and "jewelry" "in case there were robbers, you know." The kids ate it up! Midway through our train ride, ten riders on horseback dressed in...More

You don't get to see that much from the train. You go through some farmland, and then basically go back. The lure for this attraction is the opportunity to ride on a historical railroad. They do offer special events. Warning, no air conditioning, so be...More
