“Great Train Robbery, great fun for the family”

Reviewed July 30, 2012

This was one of the most unusual and fun activities we did as a family during our summer holiday. We rode the Kettle Valley Railway train during a Great Train Robbery event. The kids thought we were nuts (we're paying to get robbed?!), but it was a lot of fun, a great show, and it ended with a great BBQ dinner. The train ride itself was pleasant and relaxing, I'd recommend one of the outdoor cars to get better opportunity for views and photo taking.Great fun!

We enjoyed the ride very much on a hot July day. The open air cars are the way to go, for views and the breeze. The train goes through beautiful country with lots of opportunities for picture taking and the truss bridge at the end is a nice touch.

Bring water if you need it and enjoy the experience.

A unique and fun experience for the whole family. Just long enough to be interesting but not too long for young kids.

The Kettle Valley Railway Steam train is an all time favourite. Located in Summerland, 15 minutes north of Penticton, it is a trip back in time. Volunteers ensure you see and learn about what is around you. The singer/banjo player is a delight and tries earnestly to get passengers into the spirit of the train and the ride. Bravo to all involved!

We went on the BBQ train with the whole family, grand parents, parents, and kids. The wild west show was fun, nice staff and a tasty BBQ dinner afterwards.
