  • Very nice gentlemen running the place, they offered our group a tour and it was a great time. They were funny, positive and very informative, it just felt like you were talking to your family so they were very welcoming. There are also actual trains that you are able to walk through, very cool and neat!
  • What a great place! I love that our kids could actual climb inside the trains!
