Our children are fascinated by trains. Especially after seeing so many trains in cartoons and movies. This is one of the few places left to bring the whole family where everyone can enjoy them together. Great memories.

We got some fun pictures here and kids can have fun. Not too bad for a little fun, although there are more engaging activities in Eureka Springs.

Nice scenery. The food was average. I don't think the food is worth the price. You stop in the middle of a field to eat. The field is pretty but you sitting instead of riding.

Don't expect to see any beautiful mountain scenery on this trip. Just trees, bushes, shrubs and a few creeks. However, that being said, the food on the lunch trip was good. We all tried something different and it was all pretty good. The dessert, Eureka Chew Chew, was good, like a warm blondie with vanilla ice cream. The table settings... More

It seemed a bit pricey, but lunch was only about $10 more than the price to ride the train. Dining car was nice, good food, good service, and A/C.

This was not the warm, friendly tourist attraction I remember from 15 years ago. You will not receive warm fuzzys from the staff here. It felt more like I was imposition to them. The friendliest people on the train were the other guest. I think everyone began chatting to each other because we all felt so unwelcome by the employees.... More

A little too long waiting for the diners to be fed and seed for while those in the excursion rate car sit in the heat waiting for the go sign. Conductor was great. The coin smash was fun. Just too long of waits as excursioners. Many Peoples Kids were bored and many adults fell asleep. No view really.

The best things about this railroad attraction are 1) the old railroad cars and tractors they have onsite that you can explore and take photos of either before or after your ride (they have a wonderful collection of authentic old vehicles) and 2) the conductor who hosts the rides--he does a wonderful job of telling the history of the railroad...

We had lunch on the train. The food was surprisingly good and the service was outstanding! My husband had to go to the gift shop to buy the dessert recipe since he loved it so much. It was .75. The actual train ride itself was a little disappointing. It was just a straight ride forward, a little back and forth/stop... More

We had two adults traveling. The train ride was ok; however, the conductor told stories and gave history which made it more interesting.
