We booked this evening a few months in advance. We printed out the directions and programmed the GPS on where to go. The website explained to get there early due to the popularity of the attraction. So we decided to get there early. Here is where the problem comes in. There aren't clear signs for where to park and when... More

A group of us decided to do the Wine Train that Delaware River Railroad Excursions provides. I was really looking forward to the train ride and all but was a bit disappointed with the excursion as a whole. So, I thought we would've had our own train but we didn't. There was a Pumpkin picking excursion and possibly something else... More

We took the pumpkin train on 10/29/2016. We were a little disappointed because we were looking forward to riding on an old fashioned steam train, as the Groupon represented, but they used a regular train instead. We took about a 1/2 hour ride on the train (in the last double decker car, we could not hear the music or the... More

The train ride itself was very nice as well as the mine and corn maze BUT it was extremely buggy. You had to continually keep swatting the bugs away! They should have a communal bottle of bug spray or warn you to bring some!

My children coming here for the holiday rides. It's an hr drive from NYC....nice little day getaway from the city. Polar Express - Book your tickets early, by summer time....trust me it runs quick Halloween - get free pumpkin, nice fall foliage to look at Easter - Spring blossom; kids can do Easter Hunt.

My friend and I used the DRRE mainly because we wanted to do a corn maze, and not for the train ride. I found them through Groupon and with a 50% discount it's a decent price. I honestly didn't think much if the train ride. I guess it's fun for young kids. Seemed nothing more than my commute to work... More

Our family enjoyed our visit a couple of years ago on the Polar Express! The kids found it to be magical and it definitely a memorable experience for them, as they still talk about it and hope to visit again this year! A must do with the family!
