  • These negative reviews are really not appropriate. This RR is awesome. If anyone on the East Coast has done the Strasburg RR in Lancaster County this RR I think is on par if not better. It's a...  more »
  • Overrated! We did the 3-hour train ride and I couldn't wait to get off the train! The seats are assigned--so if you are "lucky" to get a seat on the right side of the train (first half of the...  more »
  • We took the 3 hour ride from Heber City down the canyon. Not a lot of narrative during the ride, no wildlife but you did. follow the river. A couple of fiddle players did a few number both down and....  more »
  • The historical train ride in Heber Valley was wonderful I sat in the wine and cheese car and let me tell you it is very very difficult to walk when that old historical train was running a movie but the views were where we went where wonderful. There was a few more than 5 fly fisherman out on the river. This was the best historic train ride that I have taken in Heber Valley in the last 3 years. There were 300 plus passengers on this trip and I do believe we all had a wonderful time.
  • This was an awesome train ride. Great veterans treatment! It was such a fun trip. Great weather on first half of trip but hot sun coming back. The river was so beautiful and lots of people riding the rapids. Lots of friendly people on the trip.the staff there was very very accommodating and pleasant. The train robbery was exquisite although they told me I was too old and ugly to be taken hostage by them! Thank you for the fun trip! I really wish my kids had been with me to enjoy it also.
  • I went on the 90 min Heber Creeper ride on Monday with my extended family. The hostess of our car, Alyssa, was very interactive with everyone on board. She even took the time to learn the names of ALL the children in the car, including our troop of 8! She danced and sang right along with us and really helped everyone have a blast! The actors at the shoot out were a lot of fun, and they had amazing violin talent during the ride! Heber train rides are well worth the tickets! I look forward to a long ride through Provo Canyon!
  • The "Heber Creeper" is such a fun, little, rail line! The car we were in is about 100 years old! It was fun to learn about the craftsmanship of even the seats, how they change direction with a simple push. I was also amazed how hot it was. I forgot there was an era without air conditioning. We enjoyed their Murder Mystery comedy troop. The players and hosts are very talented and fun. Unexpected audience participation spontaneously erupted into a car-wide sing-a-long and dance-off!
  • We went on the Valentine‚Äôs Day train ride. It was so much fun. They had yummy snacks, giant chocolate covered strawberries, music, and a dancing car. It was cold! Wear a coat and hat! It was romantic, but we also met and got to talk to some other interesting couples. Everyone happily celebrating valentines with us. It was great! We ended the ride with a box of amazing truffles and a rose. It was lovely.
