My family and I purchased tickets for the first-class lounge car and we were so glad that we did. The train car had upholstered swivel chairs that allowed us to view the countryside with ease. It was a comfortable trip because it was unseasonably warm on the day we did this and the car had air conditioning. In addition, there... More

You don't need to be a kid to have fun here. My husband is a history nerd and he really loved this place!

I do love trains but have to say I wanted a longer ride with more scenery so for the price was slightly disappointed. I know keeping this attraction going must be costly so I get why it costs $20 for a 45 minute ride. It would be an expensive family experience that's for sure. Obviously there were more things to...

Enjoyed the old trains. You can climb on many of them. The history is interesting and you get a real feel for older train travel.

Everyone was so nice and polite . Train is clean. Great train ride. Train tickets are a bit pricy Very expensive with the food and automatically added tip on our bill. The kids loved the ride. Even though we couldn't hear the conductor. The food was not what we expected. Pulled pork sandwiches had gristle. Coleslaw was on the sour... More

45 minute ride to Paradise and back on a steam train. Tried the dining car. Food was good but hard to hear the conductor. People are super nice and friendly.

Went for the Bonnie and Clyde railroad robbery trip. It was OK. Actors were pretty good. Children would enjoy it more. I've now done it once., which was enough..

My wife and I took our 2 daughters here during our spring vacation. We all enjoyed ourselves. Loved the train we rode on and enjoyed our conductor who knew so much about the train and the area. Prices are reasonable and your money goes towards the RR itself. Definitely stop in if you are in the area! :)

My family has done this train ride many times. I have done the train ride, both as a child and as an adult and it is definitely something all ages would enjoy this train ride. The ride isn't too long and it isn't too short either.
