This train ride was so much fun. We enjoyed a two hour train ride with a box lunch. There was entertainment and great people.

The train ride and the meal….we went previously.
Why is a Prince Albert bus not available….would be good for older people who have trouble driving at night.

I was so excited to experience an interactive program on this excursion. Didn't realize that they were going to have an unsuspecting customer run around trying to find clues and then figure out what to do with them. There weren't any actors on the train as far as I could tell. When we disembarked for or engine to be switched for return trip there was a short skit...never warned everyone they would be standing out in the cold and most of us couldn't hear or see anything that was going on. I paid over 320.00 for what was to be 4 of us, one guest was unable to make it, he was the lucky one, to sit on a train and visit with each other. Tour was extremely disorganized and amateurish for the price you pay. Sadly I won't be giving them a 2nd chance.

While waiting to board the train, in Wakaw, we were able to go for a wagon ride. Upon boarding the train, there were employees going around taking drink orders. All during the trip, there were different 'characters' walking through the train 'entertaining' everyone or asking individuals questions, etc. It was a wonderful trip and I would recommend it to anyone.

I was out on vacation from BC & I wanted to take my 3 grandkids to do something special. When i googled Saskatoon the Wheatland Express option popped up. I was fortunate to get tickets for all 4 of us only 4 days before the event. Haley found a cancelation & called me back with tickets. I was so happy since this was the only day that would fit my schedule. The staff are so helpful & accomodating and the entire experience was fantastic. I'm now hoping to take the family on the Christmas train experience in December.

My wife and I went on the basic "great Canadian Train Heist " tour yesterday . The leisurely pace of the train ride between Wakaw and Cudworth and back with a half hour or so stop at Cudworth ,was a perfect way to spend the afternoon. During the stop at Cudworth we took in the trackside train station museum , a real step into the past , and nicely organized. The restored coaches such as the 1950 Diner car from New York as well as the restored coach from New Orleans that was salvaged from hurricane Katrina as well as the two converted dayliners are an on board rolling exhibit not to be found anywhere else. The group of actors did a great job of interacting with the passengers as well as on board fun entertainment . A local singing Cowboy Larry Krause, wandered from car to car serving up a great repertoire of songs. The experience of feeling the train moving down the track gently rocking back and forth brought back memories of riding the train long ago. This is a very well run tourist attraction put together by a very enthusiastic and dedicated group of people . We highly recommend this or any of the other tours offered by Wheatland Express .

We started in Saskatoon boarding a complimentary shuttle bus that took us to Wakaw. The hour long train trip from Wakaw Sk to Cudworth Sk and then back to Wakaw was highly entertaining and fun . The Actors and staff were all friendly and knowledgable. Pre ordered Lunch was catered by `Chef de Partie`and was very good .
My only complaint was that more verbal back ground history , direction and timing should of been relayed both at the shuttle and again at Wakaw before and after the train ride .

We went on the Wheatland Express yesterday, The Long Run band, a tribute to the Eagles first attracted us to purchase and invite family to join us before the pandemic hit. The 2020 cancellation had us waiting for this opportunity and it was definitely worth the year of wait. My husband and 2 of his siblings who all grew up in the area had fun on the train trying to figure out where we were exactly and remembering their experiences with various farm families. We also made new memories interacting with the actors on the train. They tried to keep us cool on the train with fans and refreshing beverages during the current heatwave and the tasty catered meal afterward at the Cudworth Hall was served in air conditioned comfort at assigned tables with lovely table settings. A fun menu had the dishes named after Eagles songs. The band was very skilled on instruments and voices, playing all the old favorites. Was also interesting to hear of future plans to expand educational and fun experiences. Not all trips are as extensive or expensive as ours was. Check the website for all possibilities.
