  • The Railroad Museum is not to be missed. It's in the middle of nowhere but so worth the trip. Get there early so you can take a look at the miniature railway exhibit, the old Pullman Coach and the man...  more »
  • Fantastic WWII recreation trip. Authentic ammo uniforms behavior. Re-enactors really got into it and made it special.  more »
  • I haven't had this much fun in a long time. Took my grandchildren on the train to the North Pole and we had a blast! We sang Christmas carols all the way there and back. There were lights, games, food...  more »

  • Nice country setting. Kids that are into Thomas The Train are awed by actually seeing him. All the souvenirs are priced ridiculously high. This attraction seems to be directed towards very well off families but not for those looking for an inexpensive day out with the family. The costs definitely squashed some of the light hearted enjoyment.
  • One star for the actual Thomas.. this place is really a scam, you will pay $24 for a ticket at the door if you didn’t order it online for $14. And they charge it for two year old baby! Really nothing to do inside except photo with Thomas. Train ride was nasty and smelly. You will only see Florida strawberry farms... and boring 30 minutes. Toys were priced ridiculous high and you can buy them cheap at Walmart. Really disappointed.
  • Was disappointed we didn't get to explore the grounds at Willow, just check out a display area with some interesting articles and history. It was still a decent deal. There were three cars available to choose from. The air conditioned lounge car which filled mostly with families w young children, the open air gondola which also filled quickly, and the coach car with no AC but has fans and windows to open. We were among the first on board and chose the coach car and had it basically to ourselves. It was quite comfortable and we are looking forward to attending a scheduled event next time!
  • Definitely worth the drive from Kissimmee/Orlando. If your child loves trains like my daughter they will enjoy this place. We went for the Hole in the Head Gang train robbery. It was fun. Very nostalgic. A good length train ride not too long or short. Open air and closed cars available. Allowed to move freely while the train moves. My father in law is a life long train enthusiast and he enjoyed as well. Good value. A nice day for memories and learning. Great staff. Various fun events all year.
  • I was reading some of the post before adding mine. I must have rode the wrong day. If your going for the train ride all you see us swamp and trees. The staff wasn’t friendly one bit. Crew must of been tired. Nice gift shop display but a bit over priced. Model train set was nice but the train became uncoupled and was pushing some of its cars. Good display of equipment at the far end viewed only from the train. I would think it’s best to go on event days to look at the equipment.
