I really didn't know what to expect on the dinner/train ride - it sure was a great experience. We socialized with many people we didn't know - but the best part was the train ride and the food which truly was a gourmet dinner. We...More

Went on the Hobo Train ride with my husband and 7 year old son for our 35th anniversary celebration a day late. It was a enjoyable ride and only could have been better if the obnoxious group of women from NY hadn't been on it.

The train ride was okay, scenery not spectacular, but if your purpose was to experience what it was like to ride on a real train, it was fine. The staff was friendly, and you could order a lunch to be served while you rode. We...More
