Well-runned railroad in the middle of Lincoln. The train is actually more than an hour during the summer and I highly recommend going there during the summer because the golf course is open and it's great for the kids as well for adults. It was...More

We were very disappointed it was advertised as a 2 hour event, last 40/45 minutes. Poorly organised with Q's in packed gift shop. NOT AT ALL AS ADVERTISED. Complaint after event ignored and not answered. I could not recommend and I suggest taking the advertisement...More

What can I say, train ride during foliage season sounded like a good idea and the ticket price was a lot cheaper than many of the other trains we've taken. Well you get what you pay for but I definitely do not feel shafted. No...More

The station was nice, not enough room for the amount of people waiting for the next train. The train cart we were in was decorated nicely. Hot chocolate was ok. My 7yr old son really enjoyed it. The journey to the North pole was only...More

My toddler loved it. It was scenic and educational for us too. We had an amazing time. Maybe we will go back again.

We didn't want to spend all day on a train, but wanted a little train ride, so this was a good option at a one and a half hour trip. The place where you begin the trip is worth the visit itself in my opinion....More

We have been on a lot of train rides and this is one of the best scenic views of them all as you go around lake Winnipesaukee. We went one way as we got off and then got on the MV Mount Washington boat cruise....More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Why are emails and calls re the disastrous North Pole Trip costing over 67.00dollars per person suppose to be 2 hours but which was only 40/45 minutes being ignored? Do you not accept constructive critic? Complaining and having the reviews removed is how you answered our genuine review. We will post a receipt to prove the amount paid for a very poor event. People be well advised to spend there money elsewhere
