Save your money. Staff was wonderful but the train trip was advertised as a 2 1/2 hour trip and then we’d be at a fall festival. In reality it was a 4 1/2 hour trip to a rinky dink garage sale and a 5 1/2...More

Took grandkids to do the Thomas the Train Adventure. Grandkids enjoyed the short train ride along the Cumberland River and all the activities. Activities were geared more toward elementary age kids than toddlers. The petting zoo was a hit .

I went on a winery train run and paid for a VIP experience. It was supposed to include breakfast since we left so early. They didn't serve anyone in our area breakfast or offer snacks as we paid for and were promised and in fact...More

It was a quick but fun little side trip. The museum part was interesting and in a small room in the building. There was a large model train setup. They were doing a demo for a school group so we went to the train outside....More

I was really looking forward to this excursion but was really disappointed. First off the dome car which is the most expensive seating on the trip (approximately $400 for 2 people) was an absolute sauna. Sweat was literally pouring off of people's faces and it...More

Saw the dome car seats. Glad we skipped them as well. Most other seats all same. Like a plane, just much more room.
