We do the polar express every year and its been great! This year we decided to do the pumpkin patch. We were very disappointed with the price and the train ride. We will not be back next year for the pumpkin patch.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. The Pumpkin Patch Train is in just its 3rd year of operation, and like Polar Express it has started small and modest. We are making preparations to expand the size of our Pumpkin Patch and the amount of activities available there, and should have most or all of our proposed improvements in place by next October.

I booked the Railway Express package with 1 night at the Railroad Depot Hotel in Williams, AZ and then the train journey to the Grand Canyon in the Luxury Parlor car.

The hotel was nice, nothing amazing but nice and very clean. If you want the trip on the train to be a bit special, go for the parlor car, expensive but definitely worth it. It's the only car where you can ride outside at the back on the rear platform. You also get plenty of free snacks on the train, meaning you don't have to waste your time in the Grand Canyon having lunch, you can go for a gorgeous walk instead.

The musical entertainers were fun and original. We did get held up by train robbers on the way back taking money off us that we'd "hidden". I "hid" some cash in my watch strap to be taken as I just assumed it was tips for all the staff. We hadn't been asked for tips all day and they'd all worked very hard (with smiles on their faces).

And of course you get to see the beautiful Grand Canyon,loved it.

If you like to ride trains, this is a great way to spend a day. The views from Williams to the Grand Canyon are spectacular.

The highlight of our trip was the grand canyon railway! The cowboy show before the train journey to the canyon was simply wonderful! The boys really put on a great show.
The views from the train are spectacular and the staff on board are very welcoming and helpful.
An excellent day out for all ages.

We had the three night package to GC. Very comfortable and well-planned trip up and back from Williams, AZ in the dome car. Excellent hostess, beautiful views, super snacks. Didn't ppreciate the train robbery act.
