I was looking for something my mother, in her seventies, could do that would not require much walking. After about 10 minutes my mother looked at me and said this is boring. How much longer do we have to sit here. I had to agree.

This is fun for the kids, with a train ride from Branson (we went south on our trip) into Arkansas. Great history of the train and the surrounding area. Sat in the dome cars, which offered a nice vantage point to see the changing Fall leaf colors. It was a tad warm up there, and the speaker system was hard... More

We took this train ride in mid October. Hoping to see some color changing in the trees. It was still early to much color change. We got to sit in the upper viewing area. Seats face each other like in the old trains. We had a nice visit with another couple sitting across from us. Nice way to meet new... More

We took the train tour and enjoyed it very much. All of the passengers go for the upper level viewing parts so it gets crowded up there. I would suggest spending part of your time down below. Can still see everything and have plenty of room.

Good way to let the family experience a train ride. Nothing exciting but fun nonetheless. Snack car was the only thing available this time of year. Would like to have had a dining experience but doesn't start til April.

What a wonderful ride from the past. The tunnels and the gentle sway could put one to sleep. The unique cars and informative observations along the way is quite the experience. The trestles and panoramic views of the Ozarks are a slight to see. Very children friendly with concessions on board. A definite 2 hour experience for all!

Save your money. Not worth the over priced cost of admission. We payed $78 for 3 people to sit in a train for 1 1/2 hours. All you saw were rocks and trees. Couldn't understand the tour guide because the audio system was garbled. Our tickets had a high number so we were last to board. Thought we had assigned... More

The train ride was disappointing a it was 1 1/2 hrs into the Ozark Mountains and Arkansas. Mostly all you saw was the two sides of the hill which had been dug out for the train years ago. We expected to see more. It was one of the have to do in Branson which I would skip. It would be... More

Loved the different cars, especially the dome car on top. The scenery is lovely and very relaxing enjoyable time.
