The train ride was awesome and not too long even for a 2 year and a 3 year old. The only issue is because it's so old there's no air conditioning and that made the ride kind of hot and it wasn't the hottest day...More

Waste of time and money. Slow, like 10 mph tops. Scenery obstructed by brush the whole trip. Screaming toddlers. Give me my 90 minutes back.

The scenery was interesting. Needs more input from staff. Family was somewhat disappointed. I think they do have some special rides. I think our ride was in July of 2013.
