  • I was impressed with their historic carousel.. The place was clean and has a nice view to capture..
  • Live steam. Turntable operations. An impressive great where the engine has to work really hard.
  • This is a great attraction for small kids. For train enthusiasts, the steam engine #5 is a masterpiece.
  • kids loved it. $2 for 3 yrs old and up. Cheaper than Oakland Zoo or San Francisco Zoo. It passes a bridge and a fair big land. The line could be crowded around 1pm.
  • Nice young staff. Great for picnics
