WV in general loves their holidays, at Halloween we have haunted hayrides/trails, but now as the crisp chilly autumn leaves are dusted with snow we turn our sights to Christmas. I have went to Lacy's Lights in Fayetteville every year since I was 12 but this year we wanted something different(even though we will still go to Lacy's Lights). My... More

Booked this as my birthday trip - completely understanding that this is designed for children- but we are kids at heart. The chairs are uncomfortable - and a little more thought could have been put into the "North Pole".

For a relaxing, somewhat gray/drizzly day, we decided to book the Tygart Flyer up to Cheat Falls. The buffet in the parlor car is sandwiches, fruit and chips. You have it on the way up and you get dessert on the way back. Non-alcoholic drinks are readily available. Tip: Ask for the river view for good scenery. At the falls,... More

Went with my wife and in-laws. Enjoyed the relaxing ride out to the Cheat Falls. Decent lunch, although we happened to be the last group served and I was fairly hungry by then. Nice scenery following Shavers Fork (I think) of the Cheat river. Cheat Falls is really beautiful. Walk down to the lower area, if you go, to really... More

I had long wanted to take this train excursion. When a business event happened within striking distance, I jumped at the chance. My solo ticket was the very last available - an aisle seat in Car T. After reading the reviews here at TripAdvisor, I learned that seating assignments are not always set in stone and I decided to take... More

Our family booked an outing on the Tygert Flyer celebrating Dad's 77th birthday. Reservation process was very easy. The staff member was very patient and helpful booking our large group to assure we were in the same section. Arrival and boarding was organized. Our adventure started with a cold cut picnic style buffet. Sections were sent in an organized manner... More

We booked this four hour train ride hoping to see autumn foliage at its height. The train ride did not disappoint. Very scenic with a tunnel, river with rapids and a stop at a waterfall. A lunch of deli sandwiches, chips, pasta salad, apple sauce, cookies and tea, water or lemonade was provided. Soda costs $1. Staff was very friendly... More

I loved the New Tygert Flyer! We opted for the salon car and it was worth it. Great views and easy access to the lunch buffet, which was very good. It was a cloudy day in October and when we got out at Cheat River Falls, the sun came out and it was spectacular. Plan to take another trip at... More
