Fun and interesting. Pets are ok for the drive thru but not the walk thru which was a problem since we didn't feel comfortable leaving dog in car.

We rode the Grand Canyon Railway to the Grand Canyon. We were expecting some nice scenery but were really disappointed. They had entertainers / actors on the train, which helped, but felt it was overpriced.

Recently took Grand Canyon Railway to the Grand Canyon in the observation car. Pre-boarding western show was cute, but a little slow moving. Our car (Desert View) on the outbound trip was very nice. Morning snack was similar to a continental breakfast. The "cowboy" entertainment...More

Of course they allow children under two. You just don't need to purchase a ticket. For the Grand Canyon Railway and accommodations, an "adult" is someone 16 and older, and a "child" is someone age 2-15. As a parent... More

The Wild West show begins at 9:00 right at the boarding location. It is over so you can board at 9:30. The trip to the canyon is a little over 2 hours. Well worth the time.
