A fun and pleasant way to catch some beautiful scenery. Lots of fun for children! We always take time out of our holiday to enjoy this experience. Great souvenier shop too!

Just left Maui after a wunnerfull 7 days..the freight car you see in 1 photo has no shiny paint as shown...the steam team is I same sad condition...a nice leisurely train (clickty clack as you see the Blue Pacific go by would have been serene & romantic).It runs parallel with Hwy.30....Pam & Roger in Beaverton, Oregon

How can I write a review of my favorite attraction in Lahaina when it's gone??? I rode the Sugar Cane train every time I came starting in 2001 on my first trip to Maui... I loved the train, whether it was the electric engine, or the steam engine... And I took my grandchildren on it... And my children when they'd... More

Hard to believe anyone could ride this train in September, considering it has not been in operation, and continues to be out of operation, since August. It is privately owned and, maybwe someday ownership may change.

I have ridden the train many times over the years. Loved it. Always rode it several times when visiting Maui. over the last 30 years. As a train enthusiast, this little train was quaint and brought a little history to the harvesting of sugar cane in the hawaiian islands. I hope that some one will set it up somewhere as... More

We were staying across the street at The Royal Lahina so we thought it would be fun to take this into town, and it was. It was more than I expected, for sure. Great for families...the kids will get a kick out of this.

Unfortunately, the Sugar Cane Train closed permanently on August 1. It was a fun attraction for tourists to see and hear, even if they didn't ride it.

So we booked the Sugarcane Train because the activities lady at our condo said, "Everybody just LOVES it!" Well.... Not us. I was expecting quaint, informative, maybe a little presentation or movie or tour of something. Maybe it went THROUGH sugarcane fields or got to sample sugarcane or something. Nada. All we did was go exactly along the road all... More
