This is a typical tourist attraction. It sounds good, but it really isn't. Don't waste your time or your money.

Fun to do and was worth the $. There are not alot of things to do in Kauai, but we would suggest this ride and be sure to have a meal (we had Sunday brunch) and it was very good with amazing entertainment.

Not really something special, but it was ok. Learned how they are trying to self sustaining. Lots of different vegetation, few animals.

Went during the week and was relatively empty. Would also advise not sitting behind the train engine, gives off some nasty diesel fumes. We sat in the open air... More

My 5 year old son enjoyed the train ride at Kilohana. He also liked feeding the wild pigs and goats. Recommended if you are vacationing with family with young children and who love trains.
