  • We had a very nice time on the train. We took our little Pomeranian and she enjoyed the ride also. There was another toy poodley type dog, and a wiener dog with his own little engineers cap, plus a....  more »
  • Would not go back. Paid $96 for a 30 minute non air conditioned train ride for two, with a mine tour. The "tour" was 1 mine about .25 mile long if that. The tour guide if you'd even call him that...  more »
  • Was fairly uneventful but nice to experience. I wish I would have read the details a little bit more and not gone here off of a whim. We were not feeling like a mine tour so the basic and short train....  more »
  • This was a fabulous adventure for the family! It brought out the child in all of us during their Polar Express run. It was easy to find, free parking, and the staff were top notch! Everyone was friendly and helpful and seemed to really enjoy themselves during the festivities. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in something really cool that will be remembered by your child for years to come. They served hot cocoa and sugar cookies, danced, sang, and we joined in with them. Magical!
  • My family had a blast on the polor express train ride. The waitresses that sang and danced really made the ride they danced with my grandchildren in the isles. A very memorable experience.
  • Great experience. They set the scene with a brief pre-dhow then they board passengers. The train accommodates the disabled and has a bathroom that is also accessible. While the train rocks on the tracks a bit which is loud, it is nostalgic and comfy. The Polar Express. Which I experienced was fantastic. There was music from the movie (complete with dancing in the aisles), book accompaniment, Christmas tunes, hot chocolate and cookies. When we reached the "North Pole" Santa and his Elves greeted everyone. There was a small village outside, while the Jolly One himself visited every passenger with cheer and a bell. Tickets were stamped by the conductor over the passengers' heads, adding to the merriment. It was definitely worth experiencing.
  • We had a great time here. Loved the train ride and the knowledge of the park rangers. It was a fun little ride.
  • Great train ride, if you are in the area you need to go but make a reservation before hand.
