Four adults went on trip and could have skipped this. We had already been to Yosemite Valley and hiked some beautiful trails prior. So scenery on this train ride was okay. Steam train was interesting. Nice trip for children 14 and under. Panning for gold was fun,informative not lengthy. Gold panning cost an additional $10 and you do get to find flecks of real gold because the gravel is "salted" beforehand. Kids were loving it. Two departures the Friday we were there and both started late. We bought tickets for the 12:30pm ride and we didn't get going until about 1:15. They said they were having trouble with the audio system. Nonetheless, I'd take the kids.
