  • Save your money - not worth it. Advertise 4 trolleys running - there were only 2. Waiting in the freezing cold over 1 1/2 hrs. Advertise "group rate" for 10 or more people then said we had to pay more...  more »

  • Unfortunately the winter fest tunnel of lights was a disappointment. We drove an hour and immediately started waiting in a long outdoor line for tickets. It was 24 degrees and we only got indoors for 5 minutes before waiting in another outdoor line for the train. We ending up freezing after standing still in the cold for almost 2 hours! We still never made it on the train because we would have had to wait an additional half hour. But it felt like frost bite was kicking in! There was no warning on the website to dress warm. We did get a refund, but our son left crying of disappointment!
  • We had a horrible experience with a toddler in tow. Very disorganized, expensive. In 45 min we saw only one open & one closed trolley car. The line barely moved in that time. No one bothered to let us know if there was a problem with the cars. We made the decision to leave with a crying toddler but it was clear we would have been there for hours. Not worth it at all, complete waste of time & money. Extremely disappointing!
  • Great place to bring young children and babies. Their Fall Pumpkin picking is very sweet for kids, and will leave you with great memories. It's fun to relive the gone-by days of these trolleys. I saw lots of grandparents bring their young ones, and some coming to relive memories without kids. It's an incredible place, considering it's all run by volunteers.
  • Beautiful pice of history here. I have been a member here for years it is worth the time and money. The winter festival is super cool. Highly recommend coming here it is fun for the whole family.
  • Decorated for the Holidays! Don't miss Santa for a photo, working model trains, and a great ride through the lit up woods! Watch for deer.
