My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our train ride on Santa's Magical Adventure. The mood was very festive, the staff were enthusiastic and friendly, and the Christmas lights and decorations were awesome. It was a very positive Christmas experience.

We took our 4 grandchildren ages 3 to 7 and their parents and they had a ball. It was Santa's Magical Adventure - Christmas Lights Experience. Scrooge, CindyLou Who, Mrs Claus, Santa and especially the Conductor were just great with everyone. Kids hope we can do it again next year!

This event was a terrible disappointment. I have no idea why it was so expensive. The entertainment was awkward and forced. There was an attempt to have a "Scrooge" character but it was just an actor being disrespectful and he never had any redeeming moments. Basically you ride on a train for an hour while people sing a few carols around you and your kids get a minute with Santa. With the exception of one of the employees that helped us board the train, most of the employees seemed put out to be there. Don't waste your money.

Not good. Minimal entertainment. Music was played too loud you could barely speak to one another. The views from the train were mostly commercial. They had a few Christmas-themed decorations set up along the route but nobody drew attention to them so we didn’t even notice. The whole experience is TERRIBLY overpriced. Would not recommend. Pros: staff are friendly and train itself is cute.

The train was decorated very nice but santa was the worse santa I ever seen. Not knocking the guy that played santa he probably is very nice. My granddaughter was very disappointed in him and the train ride wasn't what we thought it would be. The pictures we seen mayed the scenery look better then it was. Definitely not ment for kids older then maybe 5. To expensive for what it was. And the trip on the train is way to short.
