We enjoyed the train ride that took us through the plantation. Even though it was raining, the tour was fun and informational. The drinks and food were good but the show was outstanding.

Great overview of some of the most common plants found on the Hawaiian Islands. Interesting to see how they grow.

The train ride was fun, the announcer was very informative and entertaining, and it was a blast to see the animals run to the fence as well as get to feed them. I would highly recommend.
