We should have read the trip advisor reviews BEFORE we paid almost $ 100.00 for our family to ride this train through a golf course and back. The staff were very friendly and like another review states, there are some very nice ocean views along the ride but it just wasn't worth what we paid. We thought we would be... More

Similar to a previous poster, very disappointed in the lack of communication/website updates. Saw the train back up and running earlier this week, so got everyone ready and drove to the station on Tuesday to find it closed again (no updates on their website). Sign said they'd be back up and running on Wednesday. Saw the train back up and... More

We went on the train on a misty morning, only to find out that the train doesn't operate well when the tracks are wet (after we left the station). We got stuck about 20 times and our 20 minute ride ended up being two hours. There was no commentary (except "please bear with us") and the ride consisted of getting... More

On our trip to Maui this year, we went by for a ride. Unfortunately the sign on the door says "closed until further notice". I hope it is not closed for good -- it was a really nice train ride...

My boys were very disappointed to find the train not working as of March 28 2014. Train needs a new boiler coming by boat. At least a few weeks out. Think it's expensive to start with but was willing for the kids. Maybe owners should update their website so I wouldn't have wasted my time and got the boys all... More

This quirky old train ride is 45 minutes to an hour of fun. Great views from the train across the ocean. See the train turned around on the turntable for the return journey.

There are no unique vistas or view unless you like dumpsters, loading docks and homeless camps. I don't know who was more annoyed, the golfers or the motorists.

I am a train buff, and would love to give this a nice review. However, I simply can't. I agree with most of what has been said by the other negative reviews here. This train runs about 6 miles from Puukoli (near Kahana/Kaanapali) to downtown Lahaina. A fair amount of the trip is through a golf course which is very... More

The ride is really boring. The people that run it are great and super friendly but this attraction was a disappointment. Literately a bumpy ride along a highway.
