Went w/my grandson. Had a fun visit. It is a pleasant experience. Not cheap but not overpriced either.

“Must see for the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Have been here twice in the past. You don't have to be a train buff to admire all the work that went into building all the scenes. Some guests at some point in the past damaged a few small areas in some of the display. In my opinion, the place needs a little maintenance. They have a little train ride outdoors which is great for the little kids.

“Fun.... but needs work”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

My son and I just made our second trip to Northlandz. He always has a great time, and for us, it's worth the trip. It can be a little pricey and the building/exhibits are obviously not being maintained. Things that were broken last year were still broken this year. And the restrooms- while clean- smelled awful (like there was a plumbing issue). So my son had a great time, but I as an adult noticed things that needed to be fixed. It is amazing how immense the displays are and the time/energy that went into it. A little pricey, otherwise we would probably go more often.
