  • On my bucket list of places to check out while visiting my family on the Island. I went with my mom who had mobility issues and while going a little slower she had no problem checking out everything. Went on train twice. Took the last train around by ourselves which was really nice. The staff are amazing and very knowledgeable. Recommend this stop, don't just drive by.
  • Love the train and teaching our children about the importance of our forests and trees. Also the Christmas and Halloween rides are pretty cool as well!
