Our grandaughter (6 yrs. old) thoroughly enjoyed it...the singing, the search for the xmas bear...skippy the reindeer, the elf, conductor Bob and the banjo player.   So much energy and all the kids loved it.

Christmas Train is much better than the Polar Express. Much more interactive for small children with games, coloring, elves, singing carols, and live music. The Polar Express has none of that. Can't wait till next year on the Christmas Train!! Oh and very helpful and friendly staff.

The chicken was so moist... delicious. The whole dinner was wonderful. We also enjoyed the servers, they were very nice, and very prompt with everything. The whole meal was very creative.

"Me and my group had an excellent time on the Zombie Train! The doctor was funny as hell. Tony The "Sarge" was almost TOO convincing! Ren the zombie pet was incredibly in character. The guns were cool and the night was prefect. Just might have to get a group together to volunteer as zombies! Thank you guys!"

Brandon H.

"I definitely enjoyed myself on the Zombie Train and was creeped out at times in a good way. :). If you enjoy playing video games, playing laser tag, or just doing something fun and interactive, I definitely think you will enjoy this."

Heather L.

"The Zombie Train gives you different shows at different times of day. 6pm fun and campy. 9pm creepy. Any way you go, it's fun!!"

Kathy H.

"Zombie Train was a heck of a ride and a ton of fun. The staff and zombies did a good job, the train ride through the "wasteland" was eerie at night, and the guns were way better quality than I expected. It was a fun lead up to Halloween!"

Justin K.

"Just did the Zombie Train with my fiancée and 5 others in our group. It was a lot of fun, and going with a group made it more enjoyable (in my opinion). We all had guns and I think this helps the enjoyment factor because you can interact with the actors. We think this ride is pretty cool and can definitely see doing it again!"

Rick M.

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this wonderful train ride. From our cozy table for two, great views, our fruit drinks, our absolutely delicious dinners, the special cheerful good service, to the fun Murder Mystery. We loved it all.
