The train ride was fun. Views aren't the greatest but our three year old had fun. Options to buy snacks and drinks on the train if you didn't buy a meal which was nice. Also gave small free samples of maple candy and apple cider....More

Nothing you couldn't see on a drive walk or hike. Very little narration and honestly saw more wildlife on the drive home. Would not recommend the train for anyone. But mini golf was fun!

A quick trip on one of the trains that traverse the White Mountains. Not very expensive and an enjoyable excursion, to say nothing of the nice little lunch we had on he train.

This was OKish ride. Not much scenic at least in summer, may be will be in fall! Not any specialised experience for the kids as few reviews describing. Train loving Kids just can enjoy ride itself though!
