We had to do this for our 3 yr old who is a train fanatic. They have a cute but tiny train shop and an awesome little train museum that has a whole village of electric trains. The ride itself is uneventful. Just going through...More

Long wanted to ride this train and finally made it. It is through the dry part of Oahu so, yes, it is a lot of brown and dirt. However, don't let that stop you from going. It is very affordable and the roomy railroad cars...More
