Before I go into my review, let me preface it with I understand there's not a lot of track for a trolley to traverse. But the experience could have been so much more inclusive, educational, and entertaining had there been some forethought into what they're trying to offer the public.
Very little information is readily available about the trolley, and the stops. Once we did learn about the trolley, the trolley car route was not consistent that day. So we walked all the way from Garrison Street to the trolley Museum, then sent further down to catch the trolley.
Once we did board, our conductor was a very young gentleman, who spent most of his time explaining to us about the vandalism, the cost of repairs, and very little on the history and the education about the trolley in the area.
I had a nine-year-old girl and a six-year-old boy who was absolutely ecstatic for the journey, but we were all completely let down by the shortness of the route and the lack of information and entertainment… Just a continual scolding not to touch this not to do that and about all the cost that their volunteer organization incurred.
We did pay for our tickets, and made a considerable donation that day. But it would have been nice for my children to have learned something about what a trolley was, what it was used for, when it was retired, just something about this novelty that is still being displayed in a very up-and-coming town in the state of Arkansas.
