Beautiful train cars are worth seeing. However it was a very slow tour to a town with food that had been sitting for quite some time, and a decent but cheesy magic show there. There were a few cool things to see in the little...More

Pricey, but well worth it. Took a 7 and an 8 year old on the train with us. They totally enjoyed the Great Train Robbery and meeting the robbers and their extremely patience horses! They loved the petting zoo, with the goats, chickens, chicks, and...More

About $33 for an adult. Station is awkward to access from the west by taking Centreport Way and then looping back on Park Royale Way. Access from the east is more direct. See their website for directions and to book on line. More
