They charge too much for train rides and admission. It is a neat place to visit. The employees are friendly and knowledgable!

The young kids love this ride and parents have fun riding with their young ones. The ride is not super long, it just goes around the park but it is still fun!

The train ride is $4.00 for adults, and $3.00 for children. But I don't remember what the admission fee was. But do remember that it was not very expensive for what is in there.
