We went on a cool rainy day. RR cars were warm inside. Staff was very pleasant. Gift shop inside a railroad car was different and fun. Trip is along the Delaware river, mostly through woods with some areas open up to the river.

The singing bums are the best part of the ride. Very energetic and entertaining. Great ride for all ages. Its like being in the movie. Hot chocolate served to everyone. Tickets a little on the expensive side.

This was our third Santa type train in three years and it was the longest and the most entertaining for sure. There certainly was a lot going on, almost too much entertainment at certain points but my daughter loves it and that's all that matters.

The train ride itself was very nice as well as the mine and corn maze BUT it was extremely buggy. You had to continually keep swatting the bugs away! They should have a communal bottle of bug spray or warn you to bring some!

Has anyone purchased professional photos from The Polar Express Train ride? If so, did you think the photos were worth it? Are there any other photo ops besides with Santa on the train. Just trying to decide if I should pre-purchase to get the discount or just take our own pics. Thanks!

I'm taking my three kids (age 3 and 1) to the great pumpkin train ride this weekend. I was hoping to have a great day but from some of the reviews I'm starting to second guess it. Can anyone tell me if it's really worth it? I know all the farmsand orchards are going to be a crowded mess this weekend.
