What an awesome experience. We took our 2 1/2 year old who is train crazy on this adventure. He was so excited to be riding a train with a real conductor. We all enjoyed the stories and history presented by the friendly conductor. This was a perfect length of trip and the sights were beautiful. We plan to return again... More

Every once in awhile, my husband and I go down to Middletown and take a train ride! It's relaxing, we get out and it's a nice slow ride along the the river! Worth the money!!

This ride is about an hour along a river, so was very pleasant, scenic and relaxing. Hubby loved getting to tour the RR yard and see all the work being done in the shops.

I have been on the train several times. It is an older train, but; that adds to the historic nature of the ride. The ride is very scenic and relaxing, and, the kids just think it's plain cool to be on a train. They do themed rides at Christmas, Halloween and such. Don't expect a lot of bells and whistles...

We have ridden many trains on the northeast. This train is one of the least expensive, but you get what you pay for (train is older, and station yard is a bit rundown). With that being said, we had a wonderful time! I have a 6yr old boy and 3 yr old girl and they both enjoyed it. It is... More

The M & H railroad regular train ride is just that. Nothing spectacular. They give you a little history of the R & R and the surrounding area. The staff was nice and the ride was reasonably priced. The grandkids enjoyed the ride, especially our grandson, he loves train rides no matter what.

Took the polar bear express train. It is not worth it. Cannot see anything. The park's lights were better than their "north pole". Very disappointed. The old train was neat and nostalgic but the ride was very slow

Very, very, very disappointed in the "Customer Service." In spite of a dangerous snowstorm that turned us back and US Weather Service reports calling for several inches of snow, widespread dangerous travel due to snow covered roads, and reduced visibility below one quarter of a mile" they won't even hear of a refund or raincheck. Classic example of greed! It... More

The experience is just that, riding in an old train. There is not much to see on the ride. But I loved it! Would go back for a special ride.
