Two adults and two children (ages 7 and 3) on this scenic ride from Branson to Arkansas that took about 2 hours round trip (including loading and unloading). Walking through the cars was the only activity to do to occupy the kids other than looking out the window. The front car (just past the snack car) had the recliners and best windows to view out of. The operators did not allow you to bring any water bottles or snacks on board so just leave them in your car or at the depot ticket counter. Must purchase their snacks if the kids get hungry/thirsty on the ride. Since eating was the only thing to do, it was kind of a "must purchase" situation for us. If you have kids VERY interested in trains then it's a neat experience/opportunity. If you have very actvie kids, I would recommend another Branson attraction. It's probably better for seniors. (Parking was free and across the street, a little challenging to get to if you're coming from the strip because you have to turn around and head back to access it.)
