Worst rip off ever! The train was an hour late. So after arriving an hour early as suggested we stood in the station for 2 hours. The first hour was fine but after that our toddler couldn't take it any more and started melting down....More

We brought our two kids to this ride with high expectations for an experience of Christmas magic. We paid generously for the diamond class, which we very much regretted. The bathrooms and the music system were both out of order, and the lack of music...More

Absolutely disappointed in this trip. Parking costs $5, find street parking if you can. Very bumpy train and tracks with disgusting bathrooms. Hard to relax and left extremely tired. Some people were screaming and talking extremely loud with children crawling in the middle aisle and...More

Trip was fun and had a great day to see the mountain and sights along the track. Check in was fine, but you need to arrive early to get this done. People arriving five minutes before the train starts loading (10:30 A.M.) had to wait....More
