“Train Rides Are FUN!”

Delaware River Railroad Excursions
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 July 2014

In the words of my almost 4 year old son...'train rides are fun, Mom...when is Thomas coming?' We have been on 3 'train rides' and my son has enjoyed all of them. We can't wait till Thomas comes to ride again...we usually go with another family and have so much fun watching the boys excitement when the train pulls into the 'station'. The entertainment on the train (juggler, character, musician) help keep their attention as well...we all enjoy sitting back and watching the scenery as we go by as well. Keep up the good work bringing smiles to our kids faces!

We rode the Polar Express in December. The kids were so excited and every person we encountered along the trip did not not disappoint. They did a great job keeping the passengers entertained and all of the workers seemed genuinely happy to be making this a special event for all of the families. We would definitely do it again!

Wonderful time every time I ride and my grandchildren love it! Employees who are all volunteers are extremely friendly and helpful. Great fun to share with family. Be sure to not miss the Thomas trip. We do the Mine trip on the same day as Thomas.

My son is all "Thomas" all day and night. He even talks to us in his "Thomas" or "James" or whichever train he is most into that day's voice. And if we don't address him as said train ... Well let's just say he let's it known we aren't doing it correctly. We attended the Day Out with Thomas last year and he had a blast! Looking forward to attending this year!!

We did the Dinosaur Train ride last year, and my 3-year old had a blast! The train rides for about 20-25 minutes along the Delaware, with scenic views of the river on one side, and steep cliffs or lush forests on the other.
The ride ended at the Susquehanna Mine station, where we got off the train, and had one hour to enjoy the Nature Trackers Activity Area until the next train came to take us back (you could stay longer, since return trips were not booked by the hour). There were lots of activities for kids, all included in the ticket price: An inflatable obstacle course, face painting and temporary tattoos, a sandbox area where kids could dig for dinosaur bones, armed with shovels and brushes, a dinosaur show and more. There was also a snack bar and a small shopping area for show-related products.
My kid totally loved the trip, and by the look on their faces, all the other kids did too!
