“Very impressive little railway”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Due to very young children, we gave the 'robbery' part a miss so just took in the sights. However we did sit in the open carriage and the scenery and route were stunning. The train was very impressive and given all the workers our volunteers they were all very friendly and helpful and all the family had an enjoyable time.
I would certainly recommend this and when we are next in Penticton I will certainly make sure i get 'robbed'!

“Robbed”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Spectacular! But unfortunately interrupted by a gang of hooligans on horseback right out of Hollywood who cleaned us out of pocket change (donated to charity). A great afternoon entertainment on the days of The Great Train Robbery including the BBQ with the Sherriff and Scoundrels

“Do the BBQ and Robbery”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We have been coming to the Summerland area for years, and we finally did the Kettle Valley Train. We have two small boys (aged 4 and 6). They enjoyed the train ride, but got a little bored as you are just taking in the scenery. However, we did the train ride with the robbery and dinner BBQ, and they loved it! It is a fantastic show, and the money they "steel" goes to some great charities. Well worth it! My boys are still pretending to be sheriffs and my husband and I are the robbers. Great fun!
