I went to the park for a train ride and fell into love with this park. Although the train does not stop there, Brandywine Falls is the star attraction. Be sure that YOU do! The train ride was so smooth, you don't feel it when...More

It was boring to me. I did not think it was worth the time to ride the train and see so little. It was alike going down the sliding board while carrying your ten year old in your arms. It was like spending much of...More

The Brunch Train ride was enjoyable, but not awe-inspiring. Perhaps because we did the tour too early in the spring, so there was little to no color to see in the valley. The 4-course meal was average, which may be a more of a critique...More

Definitely chat up the tour guides who are a wealth of knowledge -- but bring your own snacks if you are on the coach side as the dining car is great for souvenirs but short on food choices. Enjoyed it although probably more scenic during...More

I googled customer service info for railway they should be able to give accurate info 1-800-468-4070 ext. 1
If I was getting on the train at the Peninsula Depot but only had time to ride half of the trip, which is a more scenic trip. The North section between the Rockside Station and Peninsula or South between Peninsula and Akron?

If you travel North you can pass the bald eagle's nest; a sign of pride in how the river has cleaned up.
does the train have stops where you can get out and see any attractions?
