  • Simply fantastic. Went for fall foliage with kids and they enjoyed thoroughly. They had renovated one of their cars with large clear windows and camera works perfectly with those glasses on. I also felt ticket prices are competitive. Will recommend this ride.
  • A nice train ride at Christmas time! Our 2 1/2 and 3 year Olds loved the caroling and Santa. If going, know that when you stop in Glen Mills the refreshments are on the train in the first car. You can get out to take a picture with Santa.
  • Took the kids on Santa train ride. Memorable experience for the boys which was mostly positive with one exception. An obviously disturbed woman named Elizabeth who worked there in assisting with duties had a mental meltdown in front of a train car full of kids. Seems that she is part of the family working the tour but she has zero people skills. She started by barking orders at the guests then later became hysterical repeatedly shouting "I want to go home!", while crying in plain view of many families....very unfortunate! I think we will try a different venue next year as a result of that experience.
  • A great adventure hidden in downtown West Chester. The original Main Line takes you to Glen Mills to explore the station and nearby stream.
  • Great time for a toddler birthday party. Everyone loved it.
