We booked this adventure as a treat for my train loving son's 5th birthday. It was a 3 hour drive from our home to the train station and if we do it again we'll definitely stay overnight as the town is so cute. We booked the Diamond seats which puts you in Dome seating in booths on the second level. It was really nice. I originally booked the First class which is table and chair seating in the snack bar car. This section is great for adult parties and if you want to have wine and beer near. This was definitely the "party car". Standard seating also seemed very nice, it did seem colder in this car and you had people walking through it to get to the snack bar, however the seats were comfy and this and the Diamond seating seemed the best for kids.
The "Train Robbery" was fun and not scary for kids as the actors were great with all ages. There was also a magician who visited each table. The ride was fairly long and the show was fairly short so I'd suggest bringing something along to keep the littles occupied. You are allowed to bring food and drink on the train. The BBQ lunch you can buy is pretty good for $12. Bringing your own food can save you some money though for buying something cute in Mt. Hood or a hotel room to stay the night.
