  • The kids had fun riding on the three sizes of trains. The restaurant was quaint, but expensive, Nice area to walk around and learn about old trains. The area is quiet and quite scenic. 
  • My son was looking forward to coming here all day. When we arrived the lady at the ticket booth refused to acknowledge us because we were 10 mins early. And we only wanted to ask a couple of questions. After attempting to get her attention she began yelling at us. No one here seems like they are excited to speak with people or even acknowledge our presence. Overall I'm very disappointed in something that is supposed to be a good child experience.
  • Wonderful gem . Beautiful place . Amazing down to earth employees . Cost effective and no unwanted sales . Great for kids and for adults as well . Nice location .
  • Great time during the steam and power show. Aw inspiring to see how things were done in yesteryear.
  • Wonderful childhood memories. Been returning every year with nieces/nephews. Switching steam engines to electric/diesel leaves something to be desired.
  • My kids always have a great time at Hesston. They especially like the small scale trains and the fun tracks with the bridges.
