We took grandchild to ride the train on the Polar Express around Christmas time. The kids all wore their Pj's and a story was told by the crew. We were all served cookies and hot chocolate. They talked about the train ride for days afterwards.

We have ridden many trains and this didn't live up to its name. There was little to NO scenery until we got to the end of the ride before we came back the same way again. Very disappointing!!

If you have nothing, and I mean nothing better to do this is the last resort. If you enjoy a slow ride thru the woods this is for you otherwise stay away. Not worth the money or time wasted, there are better places to go...More

This is very interesting near Branson landing. You and your family can enjoy a train ride into the Missouri countryside if you like.

This is advertised to make you think it is going to be filled with beautiful views of scenery. It is not. You're limited to what you see and all you do it go one way, stop and reverse back to the Depot. Expensive and not...More
