  • This is a great place for the whole family. All of the staff members were super friendly and helpful, the train ride was so much fun, and the activities were perfect for our 2 ½ year old. The older kids seemed to have a lot of fun as well. It was definitely worth the 30 mile drive to Calera and we can’t wait to go back.
  • Always a great time for kids and parents. We have done the pumpkin train, now the Easter train and we are going to do Thomas. They have lots of activities once you arrive. We actually like riding the open air part of the train but typically if you ride open air you can ride in the closed car on the way back bc everyone wants to experience both.
  • We took our 6yr old granddaughter for the Pumpkin Patch trainride. The train was fabulous! The pumkin patch was a little simple. I liked the wine tasting table! The bouncy house was the most popular with the kids and it was small.
  • We went and took my 1yr old. He loved it. And it was nice.
  • This is a very fun and unique way to experience trains from an earlier time in history. We did the Santa visit at night, the North Pole Express. It was a fun way to sit and socialize with a small group while riding on a train to visit Santa. He and Mrs Claus come on to each train car. Each child has time to chat and get pix. Glad we did this unusual Santa visit .
