“Used to be fun.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

Apparently this has changed hands since my last visit. The gift shop was poorly stocked and the clerk was on a personal phone call. The two regular places to buy tickets were closed.
The first time I stopped (morning) they weren't even open. The second time I went I was the only one there and I was told that the train would be making its end of day one way run. They used to have an evening dinner run, but that is no longer offered.

“Good for sightseeing.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2011

This is a nice way to see part of Maui that you would otherwise miss. It takes you near the wealthy areas and also by some lower income properties. You go past golf fairways and sugar cane fields. Part of it runs near the shoreline, too. Nice view except for the power lines. Photo tip: Sit on the right side going out to get a picture of the steam blow-off at the other end. Switch over to the opposite side (it'll still technically be the right side as the engine turns around, but you don't). Then get the picture of the steam blow-off over the bridge on the way back.

“Fun ride to nowhere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2008

Have visited Maui numerous times with my wife and son (now 12). Each trip he's wanted to ride the train - until this year. Gotten too old I guess. It is fun with little ones and I would recommend it.
