This was a group activity of about 20 people, and I am pretty sure everyone had a great time. From the moment we arrived the staff was amazing (Alex, Mary and Nick). The pedal cars are two seaters and 4 seaters. They are quite comfortable with baskets for small items. You can even bring your dogs. Not sure I would seems a little iffy to me. There really isn't that much pedaling until the end. That can be a little tough. Great ride with some terrific views. The train ride back was quite nice. The train museum is included. When you get back to the station ask the engineers if you can get in the engine cab. It's pretty cool. Then ask to blow the train horn. That's really cool.

Husband and I decided to try the Rail Explorers experience up in Boulder City. Just 15 minutes from our home in Henderson, it was SUCH fun! We booked a tandem rail cart just for the two of us - and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Four person rail carts are also available. One can pedal as fast or slow as you like, but we decided to give it all we had. I believe it is a 6 mile trip on the rail cart, then we relaxed in some nice chairs and waited for the train to come and pick us up. We definitely take all our out of town visitors up to Boulder City for this experience.
Highly Recommend

We had the most amazing time on these pedal powered rail cars ! My husband and I got a great workout. The spectacular views are the best. I highly recommend this for any age! Dogs are even allowed to come! You get to ride back in a train. We loved it and will do it again with our family and friends.
