This is a relaxing way to get to and from Hale Farm & village. The only con is that the return trip from Hale Farm & Village is too early-the tram from Hale Farm to Indigo Lake Station leaves at 2:30PM.

It was a lot of fun. Make sure you make your on-line reservations for Coach Car #1 for either a Wine or Beer Train trip. They know how to throw a party in that car !

Was surprised for my birthday and taken on a wine tasting on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. Had a great time! In the past I had purchased tickets for the Rails and Ales, but my wife and I got sick. Tried calling to see if I could reschedule and after leaving two messages, never heard back. Make 100% sure you... More

This was a great winter trip. We got on the train in Akron and rode the entire route. The volunteers on board were helpful and nice. I am on a walker and used the wheelchair ramp. It is nice to know there are kind people out there. Next time I would like to wander around Peninsula.

Went on the Grape Escape wine tasting train ride. Food was good but wine service was slow. Sometimes waited 20 minutes for more wine. Had a good time overall, just wish the service was faster.

We took 3 children, a 2 year old, a 4 year old and an 8 year old. Of the kids, the 8 year old had the best time. It was unlike anything he had ever experienced. We bought a total of 7 tickets (Grandma, Grandpa, Mom and Dad + 3 kids) with the hope that no one would want to... More

The CVSR is interesting if you like old trains. I went for the scenic part, which it kind of was, but it was also a little repetitive. No glimpses of any wildlife nor particularly special plants. So I think that the people who would most enjoy this train ride are those who opt for the whole day excursion, like getting... More

I agree the first half of the trip took about 2 hrs (1 hr waiting for train to start moving). The CVNP could do a better job. They could hire some professional musicians or jugglers just to entertain for the first hour. Going through the North Pole and constantly wiping the steam off windows to "see" was okay. Kids seemed... More

We went on the Polar Express this past weekend, and spent a decent amount of money. Unfortunately, it was not worth it. CVSR is completely run by volunteers (who do try their best), but it is very tacky. The hot chocolate and cookies were good, but not worth the $60 plus for tickets (plus, the elf didn't know the words... More
