The ride is ok. But not memorable. We were lucky enough to get into a vista car. The seating was cramped and uncomfortable. The scenery is ok. There are two tunnels. The route is out and then backwards to the starting point. The scenery was...More

I took our senior ladies from church. It was a perfect activity with no walking unless they had to use the restroom or go to concession. So much scenery. They absolutely loved it!!

If you are a railway enthusiast you will get way more out of this than we did. The train is great and the staff very friendly. Our joint opinion was that most of the scenic view is blocked by the trees growing next to the...More

It really depends on your size. Table would be more comfortable if you find sitting in a regular booth uncomfortable

Yes there are ramps and you can just roll right on. There are stairs going up to the dome, though since it is a bit tight, but I think that is the only "stairs only" place.
