“Always a treasure to ride the Hobo Railroad!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

There is nothing that we could think needed to be improved upon. We are satisfied with the cleanliness, efficiency and value for the dollar. The clown giving the children balloon figures was a very nice touch. Thank you for another nice experience.

“Great Ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Although my kids are getting older, they still enjoyed their ride and lunch on the Hobo. They also received their hobo stick/bag on the way back.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We took this ride and had a very enjoyable and relaxing time. The scenery was nice. They served food for purchase. There was a clown on board that made figures out of balloons.

“Fun Train ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

This was run to do. They take you on a short like 4 mile ride and back, you get to eat a hobo lunch and see the scenery.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We were a bit disappointed with the Hobo Railroad. It was great to ride in an old Pullman car, but the views weren't very scenic. All you get to see is a bunch of trees and dry riverbeds. The attendants come around with inexpensive snacks and drinks for purchase, and the clown is cute with his schtick and making balloon animals and such for the kids. The conductor came around to each person/couple, asking where you're from and other general questions. He was very pleasant and informative about the area. It was a fun and different thing to do, but we wish there had been more to it.
