“Great Idea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

This was a very novel way of getting from Mablethorpe to the Seal Sanctuary and people on the beach seemed to be delighted with the train going by on the beach.

“Great Family Fun.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

It is what it is. A great little train on the sand. A lot of fun. Especially when the train drives through the water on its return. £1.50 for a return trip per person. 20min journey. Bargain for your little ones smiles and laughs as they bump along. My 6 year old loved it as much as her grandma and mammy xxx a must!

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

Every beach should have one!

Great value & just something really different.

My three year old has a mild train obsession & he loved it.

Just a little down there's also a small railway, which is located behind the brand new beach huts by the kids park> only £1 a go.

“Fun”

A 20-minute train ride along the beach, with stops along the way and going into the sea on the way back - fun for all ages
