I have taken my children on this tour a few times. It is a neat way to see parts of Oahu and learn a little about its history. Also the little gift shop and pick nick area are very nice. I only wish that this attraction got enough traffic to expand its tour schedule.

Our 4 year old grandson is a train fanatic. We had seen the tracks on our visit last year, and decided to take the ride this time. It is about 45 minutes each way (stops and goes back the same way), but our 4 year old twins and their 3 year brother enjoyed the ride and wanted to do it... More

This was a great way to pass by some time and just relax on a Choo Choo train. Nice to see some of the sights and stop for ice cream! Great for small kids.

The train was a good experience for our one and three year old although the loud train whistle made our one year old a little uneasy. It does get to be a long trip for very young kids and I think I would not bring them again until they are a year or two older. On the trip you travel... More

If you want a boring ride with only 10 minutes of real scenery, then this trip is for you. Before then it is mostly fields of nothing to look at. They only stop for ice cream on the second trip and we were on the first train. At least it was a nice day to enjoy the sun and the... More

I really don't understand all the 4 & 5 star reviews. If you like a tediously, boring ride on an exceptionally noisy, uncomfortable train, with only 5 minutes of real scenery, as well as being virtually unable to understand the narration, then this trip is for you. If you're into trains, visit the train yard, museum & gift shop. This... More

We took our 2 year old son on this train because he loves everything trains but even this train ride made him fall asleep it was that boring. There really isn't much to see until you get to Ko Olina Resort and beyond which is over 30 minutes into the trip. Before then it is mostly fields of nothing! They... More

We have been visiting the Kapolei area every year for the past 10 years and every year we say we are going to ride the train. Well we finally did it. There is a picnic area to have lunch b4 or after the train ride and you can also take food and drinks on the train. They have some snacks,... More

Learn all about the old rail system in ewa, the sugar cane culture and history and enjoy a train ride through this historic area! My 4 year old granddaughter enjoyed the ride!

This train ride in open air old time cars is a lovely and fun ride. Departing on Sunday from the Ewa Beach depot, the train slowly takes you almost to Nanakuli and back. Bring a picnic lunch and some cold water and you are all set. It is full family fun and just as nice as a train ride gets.... More
