We bought four first-class tickets for the Journey to the North Pole for this past Friday night (12/1). When you arrive, its quite crowded inside, and you're directed outside to wait in line. The ticket-time was 6:30 so we arrived at 6:00 as I'd heard...More

I expected more from this train ride. We did the ride that included the turkey dinner and let me first say that the meal is incredible. Beverages included are coffee, lemonade or water, so if you want something else, bring it with you. The meal...More

Special day to ride the train, enjoy the awesome foliage, and play with the cornstalk critters. Ride the train and you don't have to fight the foliage traffic. We've been at the Hobo for the Polar Express and ice castles. This was a new look...More

All aboard! A nice ride through the woods, over the river, along the river and then back. We ate lunch on the ride, a simple sandwich, beverage, chips and cookie as we listened to some of the local history. If you have trouble riding backwards...More

This railroad has an interesting collection of vintage locomotives and other rolling stock. In addition, the track also goes over a covered bridge, one of the few such bridges carrying a railway. We felt that there was lots to see and enjoy with this railroad.

When we went the train trip was about 20 minutes each way with the event at the North Pole lasting about an hour. That equals 2 hours with boarding, etc. You had a different experience?
