The staff was very friendly; however, the train cars could use some TLC. There are not enough bathrooms for the amount of people riding the train so the line was very long before boarding. I know it is mostly volunteers but the whole thing could use some maintenance.

We haven't actually used the ticket yet, but we did use our Groupon to reserve seats for a ride. Everyone there is friendly and helpful. Besides the train rides, there is a museum, a number of engines and cars on display, and a gift shop! I would recommend this to anyone!

I haven’t been here since I was a small child and my grandfather brought me here. I decided to bring my grandkids here and they loved it and had a blast and so did I. It brought back so many fond memories and I felt like my grandfather was sitting right next to me on that train…best feeling in the world. Thanks for a wonderful fun-filled day…will definitely be back again.
