$15 per person for one hour train ride. There were 4 of us. Very informative ride. Young children would like it as well. Lots of families on train as well. Does offer murder mystery train rides in October as well as Halloween trains

Great fun for the family. Some nice views and a nice way to spend an hour. The guys that run the trains are great - come out and support them.

Good spot to take photos of the railway carriage. The carriages look well maintained and the colours shine in sunlight, gives good pics when taken from bridge.

We took my 7 year old grandson on the Christmas train. We found this event to just be an okay event and not something we would do again. They have a nice gift shop and some interesting items to purchase for children, and the prices...More
