Train ride is nice. Staff is pleasant, helpful, and informative. Come prepared to enjoy the scenery. On the stop, the time is too short. Next time, we'll do the dinner on board.

Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, we have no lap child policy and everyone is required to purchase a ticket.

I think is 25 dollars. But they also have murder mystery themed rides among others. You can choose to eat from the concession or have a sit down meal. Don't forget to take in all of the history of the area.
