“Fun Family day trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Visited with my mother in law, 2 teens, a tween, and a four year old. After the hike to the top of the mountain, we had a great time. We rode everything and stopped for snacks twice. The ski lift to the Halloween Town was an extra special, heat stopping treat. It was a memorable place to visit.

“Fun for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

It had been 15 years since I had been here. Not much seemed to have changed but it was still fun for the family. Our 5 year old still talks about wanting to go back. I highly recommend it if you have little ones. The petting zoo is great.

I always find friendly employees and enjoy my visit with my grandchildren. We usually go on Thomas week and my grandchildren think Thomas lives there.

A little pricey, but the train was great. They have amusement rides and is geared for the young folks.
