We were so excited to "win" the lottery to board the Polar Express in Lincoln, NH. How quickly we were equally as disappointed! The elves were having fun which made up a little bit for Santa and the storyteller, they could not have seemed more bored with the whole event! The longest part was trying to keep the children entertained... 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

We enjoyed our box lunch served in an old dining car as we watched the beautiful fall foliage. The conductor was also the narrator and did an excellent job describing the route our train traveled. Everyone on the train was exceptionally friendly.

The train ride and the staff were great. The cost of food items was too high. We could not bring food with us either. Traveling through the backwoods down to the Jack o Lantern provided an up close look at the trees' color, the river's power and the beautiful setting that this ride provides. The set up of the Annalee... More

My boyfriend and I went in October. There were some nice views of the fall foliage, but being from New England we see it every year. Most of the really nice views of the river were obscured by bridge rails when crossing. If it was any more expensive I wouldn't do it again.
