Great fun for the whole family!
This was our first experience, and it was great!! The ride was perfect, not too long/short. My children loved it! We tried to complete the corn maze and game but were not successful lol adding the game made it fun. We brought out aunts (ages 72 and 65) and they had a grand ole time also, even in the corn maze!! The staff was more than courteous, answered the same question over and over and didn't not seem annoyed. I think this will be a start of a new tradition!! Thank you for the experience, my family can't wait to try the other excursions!
We have been to the Delaware River Railroad Excursions several times. Our boys are complete train enthusiasts. The themes are fantastic and creative! The staff is warm and welcoming! The rides are very reasonably priced and my children look forward to these trips! The Delaware River Railroad Excursions make every child who arrives dreams come true! From the moment the train arrives to the moment it drops you off! By the way the trains are very well maintained!!! Worth every penny! We would like to shake the hand of there creative & marketing department for a job well done and putting a smile on our faces and unforgettable memories!!
We had a fun-filled day of Fall fun. My boys loved riding the train, especially the double-decker seating! Awesome!! �
