  • Really impressive display. They have every 40 minutes night setup. Cool to see all the lights turn on as the lights dim. Have the kids try to find superman in the phone booth.  more »

  • Absolutely incredible view! So much effort was given to make it up and running. Recommend to visit and not only for kids.
  • Fantastic for kids. The most detailed and creative model railroad I have ever seen. Staff readily available to answer questions and explain history of the display.
  • I bought an admission through Groupon for 6 people to be used when my daughter, son in law and grandchildren came to visit during the March school break. The website said that they were open during this time and when we traveled a distance to get to the site there was a sign confirming these hours. However there was another sign posted saying closed due to the weather. It was a sunny although cold March day and the only thing we could think of is that the place didn't look like it was heated. I contacted Groupon to say the Groupon was no longer good for me as everyone had returned home after the break. Groupon said they would have the company get in touch with me to discuss this but of course no one did. I recognize that this is run by volunteers but as a senior on a pension I thought that at least I would be given some form of explanation and attempt to resolve this.
  • Well done! Layout is beautiful. Staff/members friendly and knowledgeable.
  • Simply excellent! So much detail, and super-nice people too. The only night scene model train in North America. Highly recommended!
