We took our 2 young kids on the Missionary Ridge 1 hour round trip ride. It was a fun ride that everyone enjoyed. Next time we're in the area, we will probably come back and try a longer train ride.

We did not do the Summerville trip, however, I'm sure that if you call them they can tell you the type of meal for your trip.
