Went there with my dad and his gf. It was a cowboy event where we get hijack by bad guys. It was so much fun and they feed you a meal at Grosse Isle. It was relaxing and the four adults loved it!

Took their family fun day special to Grosse Isle. If you like old trains, this one is the oldest in North America. An 1880s vintage coal fired 4-4-0 steam locomotive pulling several 1890s vintage passenger cars. Not all of their scheduled runs are steam. They...More

Pricey, but well worth it. Took a 7 and an 8 year old on the train with us. They totally enjoyed the Great Train Robbery and meeting the robbers and their extremely patience horses! They loved the petting zoo, with the goats, chickens, chicks, and...More

About $33 for an adult. Station is awkward to access from the west by taking Centreport Way and then looping back on Park Royale Way. Access from the east is more direct. See their website for directions and to book on line. More
