My family and I went on the Christmas Train ride. The volunteer elves and Santa`s "daughter" were very nice along with the woman who gave us our tickets. Overall, the Christmas experience was very poor. There was a man dressed as the Grinch who was filthy who followed the Santa throughout the train.... He then walked throughout the parking lot...

I completely agree with BellaNottle33 review of 12/10/12. I only wish I would have read it before spending $30.00 on what was a nightmare experience. Everything Bella said was accurate, but I would like to add one more "feature" of the Santa Train. Let me just ask . . . why would any organization who has an understanding of children... More

My 3 year old grandson is train crazy. He LOVED it and I loved watching him love it. It was really enjoyable through and through. Beautiful scenic ride along the river. We were able to sit anywhere we wanted to in the train. We selected the caboose and were able to hang out with the conductor. At the end of... More

We visited Kiski Railroad during their "North Pole Express" event, Saturday, December 8, 2012. It wasn't worth the drive- even if it was free and next door; though we traveled almost two hours one way. Our children were ignored by a filthy, (drunk?) Santa- not such a jolly elf. The railroad was overbooked and under staffed- those that were there... More

It's a great time but not over the top. Interesting history of the area I grew up in. I understand they are expanding - will ride again.

Who knew this wonderful little railroad exists? It's not a long ride, but great fun for all ages. You don't have to be a rail afficionado to enjoy the experience.
