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

Went on the kids fun ride you paid $16.00 even for little kids. Was to leave at noon (signs say no waiting) we waited for two buses for fifteen minutes.

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

We went on a family trip on this railroad. We were able to get an AAA member deal and that made the trip better. There is a small depot where you pick up your tickets. It does get crowded as there is only one clerk but its not as bad as the previous reviews make it seem. The bathrooms are... More

My advice is to get to the station EARLY so you can purchase your tickets (cash only), use the restrooms and buy your souveniers and snacks before the lines begin to form. There was only one person at the ticket booth, gift shop and snack bar, so if you were not there early you had a LONG wait. Both the... More

Our grandson wanted to ride on a real train (without faces) so we opted for the steam engine locomotive. Prices are pretty high (15pp). Bathroom at the station so get there early. Or at the destination there are porta potties. We have been on train rides before where there are "entertainers". This ride had one too. Didn't care for the... More

We took our 4 little grands, ages 4,6,8, and 10 for a trip to the North Pole via the Arcade and Attica Railroad ($14 pp). The ride was leisurely through the southern tier. The train is vintage steam engine and cars which were of the period-nothing fancy but simple lit garland over the windows. The real fun was Squeezebox Johnny... More
