My 3 yr old enjoyed the Thomas the Train ride, the bouncy house and chasing bubbles. Employees were friendly. One of the two teenagers working at the bouncy house helped my son go thru the bouncy house. I am very grateful for the extra hand to walk him thru patiently!!!

Great attraction for my 4 yo daughter and 2yo boy. My kids were amused that they could see Thomas "in person". I strongly recommend it! We are definitely going back!

Done it for three years with my son who looks forward to going. Lots of activities available and mining for gems option on another train ride near corn field. It's a nice town in NJ neighboring Easton, PA which is home to the crayola experience which is also a great fun kid activity. Good over night location! Check out other train rides throughout the year!!! Highly recommend!!
