  • Nice museum and train ride. Staff is helpful and courteous. If we could have gone inside some of the trains out front it would have been a 5star review.
  • Awful experience!! Cute concept, however boarded the train at 10:45 and didn't leave until 12:03. With a screaming 3 yr old we had to get off after the 2nd time it broke down. Once off the train we requested a refund and were told it was not in their policy. We would have gladly stayed on if not for the 2nd breakdown which occurred shortly after we pulled out...by then our patience and that of a toddler had worn thin...as well as growing concerned it would break down again!
  • This place was pretty cool. I took my 3 year old to see all the trains while we were in town and he loved it. Rhe place was closed but it was still pretty cool to walk around,and see the trains! I just wish we could have taken a ride somewhere. Would recommend.
  • My family had a fun! It was worth seeing but I probably won't be traveling to it again...it was okay though for a morning activity!
  • My family and I went to their Day Out w/Thomas event and it was so cute! their were lots of activities for the kids and the train ride was great!
