“Great afternoon activity for the kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

If it's hot - be sure you book an open air car. Book in advance by calling ahead - it'll dramatically speed up your day when you arrive.
It's fun for the kids - they have a scavenger hunt to occupy them which is great. Not too long, just right for younger kids. The banjo player who makes his rounds is quite good and pretty funny.

“A Trip Back in Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Wow, this is something that you don't want to miss doing in Summerland. After boarding the train, it was like stepping back in time. The employees/volunteers were very friendly, knowledgable & it was nice to see the employees dressed up to represent the era. We have never ridden on a steam train before and it was very exciting to see the 100 year old steam locomotive in operation. With open & covered cars, the ride would be comfortable in any weather. We enjoyed every bit of our 90 minute ride and had we been in the area a day longer would have loved to be part of the Great Train Robbery.

“So much fun!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

We just went on the Great Train Robbery with our 7 and 9 yr old. The train station is so cool and retro. The train was fabulous - we had a comfortable inside spot. The views were tremendous. The actors kept us laughing. Then the robbery!!! The bad guys were amazing riders! Their horses and pop guns thrilled all of us. They robbed us for charity with huge friendly smiles. My kids were just wowed. The food after was so good. Truly a fabulous time worth every penny and even those we were robbed. A great memory. Thanks to the whole cast and crew!

“Kettle Valley Railway Train Robbery & BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Living in the beautiful Okanagan Valley we often forget to be a tourist in our own back yard.
A friend and I recently experienced the Kettle Valley Railway ride and BBQ in Summerland, B.C. What a wonderful afternoon. The weather co-operated, the train was full of people of all ages, the robbery was very realistic, and the BBQ was superb. It was like going on a train in the old west.
A real must for any tourists visiting our beautiful Okanagan Valley
