    We brought our grandchildren here to visit Santa and we found him to be the best Santa we had ever visited. Make sure to bring old shoes and warm clothing. The other "interests" were pretty amateurish

    Most appalling train experience ever! There was nothing else apart from the train. 15 minutes thru the woods , kids got bored and started to make jokes about the whole experience . Xmas train? What xmas? Worst value ever. Would not recommend, waste of time and money!!
