  • Great place. Had a awesome time looking at all the trains and the detail in the landscape. A lot of detail and time went into this amazing model railway.
  • Amazing display!! 25,000 hand painted people, 1400 building's and over 2kms of Track.. the owners are amazing! Spent the time to show my 3 year old boy all the little secrets and trains.. he loved it..
  • If you have children, or you are young at heart, or better yet, both... Come check out the spectacular space that is full of thoughtful design and artistic and engineering skill to build! We were wowed and entertained for a good length of time. Surprised by a special view near the end of the tour and then picked up a toy in the gift shop. If you make your way into the interior, I recommend you pay them a visit!
  • This place is amazing. 3/4 kids loved it too. We had a blast looking at all the sceneries and we're very impressed. Definitely worth it.
  • This place is amazing! Any age will enjoy it from young children to seniors. We had driven past it so many times and never stopped until our friends told us to go see it. The trains are only 1 part of the display. The numerous handpainted villages, people and scenes are stunning. There is so much to take in. Thank you for sharing this labour of love with the public. We will certainly return again!
