Where do I begin?! Our two year old grandson thought he was really seeing Thomas in person and BC of that it was worth it for us to go ONCE. It didn't help that it was in the 90s that morning. We were the first group to ride Thomas of the day. They suggest that you get there about an... More

I had bought tickets for the Polar Express train ride. Even though I missed the train ride I had been scheduled for, they were willing to put on the next train with no problems. I couldn't take the next train so I was told to email a man named Greg and he was very helpful and understanding with the whole... More

This was our third Santa type train in three years and it was the longest and the most entertaining for sure. There certainly was a lot going on, almost too much entertainment at certain points but my daughter loves it and that's all that matters.

This was the first time doing the train ride. Had a very good experience. Everyone was cheerful and helpful. We enjoyed hot cocoa and a chocolate chip cookie. All the kids got bells and the adults when asked for it got one too. Little bumpy but it is a 1950s train. Pictures were taken and you were able to purchase... More

We booked this evening a few months in advance. We printed out the directions and programmed the GPS on where to go. The website explained to get there early due to the popularity of the attraction. So we decided to get there early. Here is where the problem comes in. There aren't clear signs for where to park and when... More

A group of us decided to do the Wine Train that Delaware River Railroad Excursions provides. I was really looking forward to the train ride and all but was a bit disappointed with the excursion as a whole. So, I thought we would've had our own train but we didn't. There was a Pumpkin picking excursion and possibly something else... More

We took the pumpkin train on 10/29/2016. We were a little disappointed because we were looking forward to riding on an old fashioned steam train, as the Groupon represented, but they used a regular train instead. We took about a 1/2 hour ride on the train (in the last double decker car, we could not hear the music or the... More

The train ride itself was very nice as well as the mine and corn maze BUT it was extremely buggy. You had to continually keep swatting the bugs away! They should have a communal bottle of bug spray or warn you to bring some!

My children coming here for the holiday rides. It's an hr drive from NYC....nice little day getaway from the city. Polar Express - Book your tickets early, by summer time....trust me it runs quick Halloween - get free pumpkin, nice fall foliage to look at Easter - Spring blossom; kids can do Easter Hunt.

My son has been obsessed with The Polar Express for a few years now. It took me awhile to find The Polar Express on Delaware River Railroad & then we bought tickets. We took him & our daughter last year & they LOVED it!!! He was so enchanted!!! All the people in costumes were great, and the man that came... More
