Love love love!

Love love love! The food on the train was great. The staff was excellent! The view on the ride most memorable. Got to eat our lunch at a small lake. They have the best little shops you can buy such unique and wonderful things!! We had the best anniversary day trip ever doing this.

Conductor Chris makes the trip!

Our family loves to come ride the train. The conductor Chris always makes it worth it. He is always in a great mood and fantastic with the kids.

Good Job!

I just wanted to say John Michael was on my car of the train and he made this the most wonderful experience ever! I absolutely loved it! My parents made me and my boyfriend come (we are 20 and well over the age limit lol) but he was so fun and made the whole atmosphere perfect! I just want to say that him and the 3 other lady’s on train 42 were amazing and wanted to pass along this. I read the reviews before and how horrible the service was and how they don’t care… well that is very untrue! Great experience all the way around! I will be back next year with my nephews to enjoy this experience! Good job
