It the best steam train in New York State hands down. Great family fun for everyone. The open air car is a blast. Two hour ride is outstanding great scenery in western New York. Good value for your buck.

I picked up a Groupon after doing some research and wanting to give this a try. Even without the coupon we still would have done this but it made it that much better. The train-station is right on the outskirts of their downtown, and it looks really cool. The cars on the train and the engine are cool with the... More

This is a relaxing joy ride in the antique passenger coaches behind a chugging steam engine. The train runs through beautiful farm land country. There is an open coach if you want to enjoy more of an open view but all coaches have windows that open. The train stops at a half way point. There is hot dogs and ice... More

Were fortunate to get a Groupon so tickets ended up being $7.50 each. It was an enjoyable trip and because the entertainment added to the ambiance I didn't mind tipping them. I do agree with a previous post that it took too long to get ice cream at the halfway stop - this is due to their offering MANY different... More

Took my niece here today. Great ride, 21/2 hrs total. Train goes slow and nice country view. We opted for the outside car which is the caboose going. what you arent told is its the front going back. The whistle is loud so be prepared. We counted 7 small (3&under) children horrified by the loudness and crying. Parents be smart... More

The entertainment all requested tips the the couple playing music passed the hat and down right asked people. On the turn around you could get a hot dog and drink... More

For a little trip with my Niece, we went to the Arcade and Attica railroad for the Memorial day celebration. There was entertainment on the train and snacks for everyone. Then we stopped and saw a wonderful tribute to the soldiers of the Civil War.

the movies have nothing on the Arcade & Attica railroad, which shuffles along -- often behind steam power -- through six miles or so of rural farmland... loud, smelly, colorful and just the right length of the youngsters who are its prime demographic

We have taken our children - now 5,4, and 18 months on the polar express train for the past 3 yrs. It is fun for adults and kids- the cars are decorated for Christmas, Christmas caroles, and santa. The kids can't wait to go again this year.

Don't get me wrong, train rides are great! Being on a train from the 19th century, that's cool history. But, there was nothing to look at!! I'm someone who appreciates nature and its being but that was just bad. They had 2 guys playing the accordion & banjo to entertain, fun for kids(BTW they come around at the end asking... More
