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

Excellent day relaxing and sight seeing with family on the scenic trainride. It was very enjoyable we got off to walk around eat lunch then back on the train later to finish our ride. If you watch out the window of the train you will see all sorts of wildlife.

We planned an outing to catch up on the train and lunch at Winking Lizard. Caught the 1:40 train south to Akron after lunch and shopping in Penisula. Very nice shops within walking distance. Be sure to ask for the audio tour tape when you get on the train, they don't offer it unless you ask. Nice narration along the... More

I travelled to this park in hope to see the changed colour leaves in the fall. Unfortunately, the day I went was raining the whole day. My husband and I drove through the park from south to north then from north back to the south. It was pretty but not I was planned. We spent the rest of the day... More

We did the bike aboard with our ten year old daughter in early September. We choose this date to avoid crowds but it was still rather crowded. The adventure was very fun and we brought our own lunch which we ate on the train. The views from the train were not as good as I had hoped because quite often... More
