I came to see the ice castles on 1/23/15. It was a Friday night and there was no traffic, which was a huge plus! We were able to see the castles, go down the ice slides and take pictures without a crowd of people. We spent over an hour just admiring the castles- and we are 2 adults. Beautiful and... More

We visited the Ice Castles and the kids hated to leave. We went on a holiday and traffic was fine. They even had police directing traffic. It is absolutely beautiful. There is a cave to crawl through, a slide through a tunnel and much more. We plan to return during February school vacation. Well worth the trip and visit.

They were OK. We had to wait on the interstate exit for almost 3 hours, to spend a total of maybe a half hour inside the "Castle". It was definitely a neat site to see and something different, but the town needs to do something about the traffic....would not sit in it again that is for sure!

A wonderful choice during our road trip in October! Fall foliage heaven. Beautiful scenery. Nice price and easy to fine. Flea market nearby. Definitely recommend! Bring a camera.

We were disappointed not to get the full day's leaf peeper journey, so opted for the 80 mins 'Foliage Season Train Excursion'. What a waste of time, money and expectation! Poor seats, overcrowded carriages, poor vistas, noisy passengers all eating their own food, standing up so the view was not visible except out of your own window. No policing by... More

Eighteen of our family and friends reserved spots in the Presidents car for the fall foliage tour this past fall. We had the most wonderful time! The train car itself was very comfortable with its couches and lounge chairs. The ride was great, the lunch was great, but most of all the staff /owners were so much fun! They entertained... More

Went on the polar express and what a fantastic time! Staff was superb and everyone from the chefs on board to Santas Elves at the North Pole exhibited genuine enthusiasm and sheer delight which made the experience even more enjoyable. Great time!!

This train ride was really nice. It's a rustic ride through the woods and over the river. A very nice experience. We ate lunch on the train and the food was very good. Sandwiches, drink dessert, and optional treats. The train was clean and we would definitely recommend this to families and friend.s
