A very enjoyable trips for folks of all ages. The train does not travel too far as it just 'creeps' along. There is entertainment virtually the whole way, with the train robbers boarding, then a fiddler doing an excellent job entertaining the customers.

We took the 3pm, 90 minute train ride and it was a cloudy day which made the scenery and photos dramatic and beautiful. The information we learned during the trip was interesting. The entertainment was amusing. We had coffee and hot chocolate for a small fee. The coffee wasn't stellar. It was a great way to see the valley and... More

Relaxing and beautiful ride! Nice and warm on our trip too! Good popcorn! We saw Mule Deer along the way and ice fishing. What a friendly conductor!

So I don't want to bash this because I can tell they're really trying to make it a cool experience but it's not. The train is soooo dirty. And I know it's an old train and historic but they could at least sweep and mop or re paint or something. It was gross. The heater is only on one section... More

It's our first time visiting Utah and as a Christmas present, my mother got tickets for the "Polar Express" ride since we've been obsessed with the film ever since it came out. When we arrive, I was mostly disappointed by the bad maintenance of the train and lack of cleanliness. Not only that the crew members costumes looked very cheap... More

I had booked tickets to take my 3 children, along with 3 of my nieces and nephews on the Polar Express. Santa had mailed an invitation to each child and they were so excited that they could hardly wait for the days to go by! The day of the event, I had it in my mind all day that we... More

We went on the 'North Pole Express' train ride and the grandchildren loved it. It leaves in the dark so nobody knows the way to the North Pole. It's based on the 'Polar Express' with singing and dancing, so lots of fun for the kids. They get a cookie baked my Mrs Claus and hot chocolate - but be careful... More

We rode after Thaksgiving. The grandkids had a blast as did the adults. 90 minute trip was great for the non-train buffs. The elfs were awesome. Jolly, bubbles, eggnog and Bekka were awesome with the kids and enthusiastic but not overboard. Overall a great experience for all of us.

Reserved the caboose on the North Pole Express. Had our family of 12 there which was about the right size. Two workers take care of your needs. Great for a private fun event. Santa spent time with each child. Good memory and worth the money

This was grandson Henry's second Weber Valley Railroad trip. He did the North Pole Express two years ago. This time, we took the ninety-minute Deer Creek Express. Lovely scenery and slow-going. A railroad bandit tried to rob us at one stop -- pretend -- and, when she said, "Put your hands up in the air . . . NOW," Henry... More
