Too much of a hassle and too much waiting! We did this with our 3 children: 8, 5, and 1. The train picks you up at the arcade station, then it's a 45 min trip to curriers to see Santa. You will be standing outside waiting in line for Santa. Our ride was sold out, so we waited 25 minutes... More

I visited the Arcade and Attica Railroad on 12/05 for the "Santa Train Ride". The cost is $16 per person. The train cars were barely decorated...not a good sign for a Santa Train Ride. The cars were FREEZING as they were not heated, therefore condensation was building up along the windows and water would periodically drip down onto our seat.... More

The day we visited was the Civil War re-enactment weekend. Very interesting. Enjoyed their camps and their simulation battle. Enjoyed talking with the "actors". Learned a few things about the people and the times. Used a Groupon and it was a good deal.

I love the history and experience of the old train. Very reasonable priced and a great way to spend the day. The town is locally based right at the station.

I purchased 2 groupons on 8/21/14 for 4 people to take a train ride before Nov 2014 of this year. I called the company after purchase to choose a date for our train ride. I was informed at the time of the call the only available date left for the season was Sept 20th at noon. (Why did they have... More

We had been wanting to do this for years, and finally did to celebrate our youngest's 3rd birthday. Went with 4 adults and 3 children, arrived 45 minutes early as recommended-definitely do this. It takes a bit of time to park, go to the bathroom (there aren't any on board), buy your tickets, look around, and board. There were WAY... More

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
