Great fun with kids, grandkids or as a couple - very relaxing - only problem is expensive parking - also this is not an inexpensive experience - went on a wild flower trip with the grandkids which included all sorts of goodies - we've done it quite a few times & will again with guests

We want with the kids (ages 11 and 12) after I bought groupon for this attraction. The train is nice but better for small kids. The day we want was very hot and the standard tickets was without air conditioner and with our luck the old train was broke down in the middle of the previous trip and we needed... More

Took a scenic tour during the week with my wife through the Bucks county country side. Had a great time. We were the only 2 people on the train so the conductor sat across from us and told us the history of everything we past by. A little pricy but worth it.

We went in the polar express train ride. It was nice. The kids had fun in their pjs, drank hot choc and ate cookies. When Santa came to our seats the took A picture and were each given a 'bell' to believe! They sang Christmas songs when the musician came to our car, which lasted about 6 minutes. Too bad... More

We have taken this train ride many many times over the years. This is a great family event and takes you through the Pennsylvania Country Side. Great History, views and very friendly people. Afterwards you can walk right into the village for a great lunch or ice cream cone. Easy parking in the train station.

I absolutely would recommend the north pole express! It is both entertaining for children and parents. The hot chocolate and cookies are delicious and they also offer alcohol which can sometimes be nice for the parents. Santa comes around with Mrs. Clause and they spend a decent amount of time talking with kids and posing for pictures. They also give... More

We just returned from a pathetic excuse for a train excursion. It was not worth the money at all. I don't recommend taking this train trip unless you want to over pay and be bored. They announced at the beginning of the trip that someone would be around to take drink and snack orders. We were with a 6 and... More

It was a very nice experience but very expensive for what we got. There were 6 of us in our group and we were in the First Class car and that was about $500. We had fun but damn... $500? Plus we had to pay for drinks and extras. Was fun for the experience but never again. It was nice... More
