A great place for the train lovers in the family. A variety of trains to see, ride, and explore. Best to go at opening hours...It does get crowded later in the day. But this is a great stop for the kids, when touring Sonoma.

This is one of the most unique and wonderful attractions for families especially. You must try it. The train ride is great, and there are other rides as well. It is more geared toward younger children, but grandparents will like it too.

Wonderful for 4-6 year olds on everything. Younger kids enjoy the train ride and petting zoo. Older ones get restless and bored after a short while. Not much to interest adults. Still, it does keep the 4-6 crowd happy.

This place was adorable. I don't know what some of these reviewers were expecting, or why they are complaining. It was free to go in, inexpensive to ride the train, which is a nice, long ride along 4 miles of winding track, through tunnels, over bridges, past Old West "villages," with a stop in a village where you can walk...

I read a lot of conflicting reviews on this place before we went. We ultimately decided to go but were slightly disappointed from our expectations/perceived park atmosphere to what it was. We went with our 16 month old who is very busy. Based on other users/park photos we thought it would be a larger park-like area for kids to walk/play/explore.... More

We met up with some friends here that also had a 4 year old. The kids had a blast on the rides and running around. It was fairly affordable considering how long it kept them occupied.

Train Town has been around forever. Little kids will love it. What kept going through my head was the potential for it to be so much better. It's in Sonoma, heart of the Wine Country, perfect spot for a family attraction. More could be done to develop and maintain the property. Safety is an issue with tracks accesssible, open water,...

This place has been around for over 62 years. Our children loved going from the ages of 2-13. We still take nostalgia rides on the rails. Over the years they have added more and more attractions. It is really a wonderful experience! Check it out!!

Firstly - my 2 1/2 year old grandson loved it. Perfect age - but - I really wonder about the management here and have safety concerns. We arrive and there is no one at the ticket booth and no signage telling you to go to snack bar for tickets. Everyone arriving was confused. Then we board the train. Nothing is... More
