“Over priced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

It is very expensive and while the scenery is nice, you can pretty much see the same things by taking a drive through the area. For what they charge the ride is pretty short. They have bathrooms on the platform but none on the train. The speakers were not very good so it was hard to hear what they were describing during the ride

“It's a wonderful ride into our past”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

It's a fun ride thru the woods of a historical period of time that was thrilling and exciting. This is an experience the whole family should partake in. It deals with the history of the American Revolution. Use your imagination to see and feel what our soldiers were going thru during that part of our beginning to present It's an experience the whole family can enjoy

“If you like trains, duh!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

It was very hard to hear the tourguide on the loudspeaker. The noisiness of the train drowned him out.
