We stopped off at Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad on a Saturday nite to enjoy the Moonlite Special. The Moonlite Special is an all you can eat BBQ with a ride on an old steam engine train. The food was fantastic and the train was awesome.

We love riding in an authentic locomotive that are covered and open. Thank goodness the train was available every 30 min. because it was raining before we left. It was our last day and we wanted to do something memorable and relaxing that was on the way home.

We stopped by during a trip to Yosemite. Our 5 year old loves trains so this was a must see. We didn't have time to ride the train but still enjoyed our visit. We got to see the train return which was cool in itself. The sounds, steam and heat coming from the engine were really neat and took you... More

This is a must do! It's a great train that takes you through the forest and you learn the history of the area and the train. The whole family will love it. Great views and you have a choice if many different train cars. They even have some in the shape of logs. The conductor comes around and hole punches... More

This is a great train ride to experience. For adults it's so relaxing to be in a train going through the Forrest. When the train stops in the Forrest you have the opportunity to get off and picnic and catch the next train back. The only drawback is that they do not allow you to board until the train is... More

The food was great. I had the steak. Pleasantly surprised how good the meal was. The entertainment was better than I expected as well. The train ride was a blast for my family. Highly recommend this for couples and families of any age.

We were somewhat disappointed in the Moonlight Special dinner/sing-a-long/train ride. The narrow gauge rail trip was enjoyable and worthwhile. The meal was a disappointment, overdone meat the chief culprit. The quartet of entertainers was okay but more audience sing-a-long would have been appreciated. Our suggestion, enjoy a good meal somewhere else and then take just the train ride.

Lots of fun for all family members, with a historic steam engine ride, a quiet corner to eat lunch and several shops/museum to visit. Also kids had a blast panning for gold for an extra 10 dollars!

Great setting, good food and always fun. We have gone atleast once a year for the past 4-5 yrs. and have never been disappointed and it never gets old. Ambience is perfect for the setting and never feels like you're at a commercial attraction. An hour before train departure/dinner is ample time to view museum and gift shops. Have never... More
