My wife and I took this trip today. We got Groupon tickets. The weather was poor but we had a nice time. I'm an ex railroader (31yrs), so I felt at home.

I think is 25 dollars. But they also have murder mystery themed rides among others. You can choose to eat from the concession or have a sit down meal. Don't forget to take in all of the history of the area.
