The "trick or treat train" was a pure treat for our 3 1/2 year old Thomas Tank Engine fan! It was his first ride on a train and luckily " a steamy". It brought back memories of a more sedate method of travel for his grandparents.

Very enjoyable train ride with added extras of can can girls and a Wild West robbery! We Especially enjoyed the Kamloops history incorporated and the points of interest along the trip. We stopped on the wooden bridge over the river and we saw a huge beaver dam in the water Cleese to the bridge. Then we travelled alongside native land... More

A fun evening train ride with lots of entertainment from Can Can girls to masked train robbery. Informative narration on the history of the train and the area traveled.

This is an awesome attraction, especially for kids who love trains...the Billy Miner theatre aboard is fun, but may be a little scary for the young'uns.. Awesome Kamloops History abounds!!! Well worth the cost. You do not want to miss this...

A wonderful experience that got us in the mood for Christmas. Period costumes, authentic train journey and a visit from Santa, Mrs Claus ( with cookies) and a few famous Disney characters combined with the hot chocolate and the Carole's to provide a fantastic experience that comes highly recommended. We booked from Australia, but on the night there were a... More

We took our daughter, son in law and 4 year old granddaughter. A wonderful experience. I missed the story they did many years ago with all the characters from Christmas and how to help Scrooge get his Christmas Spirit. My granddaughter loved all the Disney Princess and we loved the gingerbread cookies

This attraction was something i was looking forward to since i first found out about it last year. We waited for the short summer dates to come on this year after all of the work that needed to be done on the train to make it safe to ride again. The day out was really nice, and in the hot... More

We had just spent 10 hours in Gold Leaf on the Rocky Mountaineer, awesome experience, headed up to our hotel and the back to the station. Headed off on the steam train a pity it is only a short fun trip with great views all round. Once we arrived back at Kamloops station we kept going for a few hundred... More

Visited this attraction for the first time with Grandchildren and they were thrilled. Their favourite part was the Billy Miner hold up. Scenic ride through a portion of Kamloops over the Thompson River to the Kamloops Junction. You can wander thru the refurbished train cars to experience what a train ride back in the 40's and 50's was like. Grandkids... More
