“Step back into the past . . .”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

I especially enjoyed taking a ride on one of the old trolleys. The museum filled with trolleys is also fun to see . . . took me back to my childhood when I actually rode the trolleys. Check out "events" too -- we went on a weekend when they also had a car cruise -- saw lots of old cars in addition to the fun stuff at the museum

“A trip into the past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

This is a great way for kids to see how people in cities used to get around, not in cars, but in trolleys. They can ride to their hearts' delight, but it will be fun for the older folk, too.

“Grandchildren Enjoyed This Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

What more could be asked for: a trolly ride on an old trolly, a sing-a-long, a visit from Santa, and a candy cane. We thought that it was done. Ahhhh, another trolly ride on a 50's trolly with Mr. Conductor. Our one grandson had the priviledge of closing the trolly door and then blow the horn. He was thrilled! We'll return, to be sure.
