This place is a MUST DO, period. If you have kids, grandkids, friends with kids, or you're still a kid, you have to go. Picnic, ride the train, watch the train, have a great time. Winter months only.

The whole family enjoyed this park. We have two children - ages 6 and 4. Boys loved riding the train and can't wait to go back.

We brought 2 young children here one evening to ride the train and see the holiday lights. Luckily I bought fast-passes because they would never have endured the wait in the long line. Definitely worth the extra money in this case! Everyone enjoyed the ride....More

I like that this is an actual "park" with a railroad. It doesn't seem like a cheesy tourist trip but a place you could take your kids over and over.

It’s as a rainy day needed something to do. Awesome railroad museum for only 2 dollars. The model railroad section is amazing and free. Worth hour of your time. They do have a railroad you can ride at night during the holidays which looks great...More
