We enjoyed our first ever ride on the Green Mountain Train. Our children, along with my husband and I, loved the ride. We look forward to another ride next year. A wonderful opportunity for children to experience a train ride. It was our first train ride.
The bathroom was full of toilette paper.
was expecting the ride to be 45 minutes and the scenery wasn't that great, but we had a good time!! thank you
Everyone was pleasant and helpful and we had a great time thanks somuch
the only confusing issue we had was last year we had tickets that we printed off, vs an email confirmation to get us on this year. The staffer at our train car was a bit confused that folks did not have actual tickets and we had to explain to him/her that the email was our ticket. Trains Rock !!!! Thanks
Our family had a great time on the Green Mountain Railroad! We enjoyed the length of the train ride, the accommodations, and the route. We loved everything from the views of the lake to the woods and the town. Thanks for a great experience!
We had a great time with our kids on the train ride!
This was a great trip for our grandson who is 2 1/2, but I have a couple of suggestions. Because we came 1/2 hour early as requested, it turned out to be a long time for many of the children to wait on the train. The latecomers avoided this! Is it possible that everyone could be checked in and boarded in a shorter time, or are there just too many? Secondly, while I am glad that there has been an increase in awareness programs for train safety, I thought that this was a little overdone for what was predominately a pre-school age group of kids...at least in our car. There are many other messages that our children (in our case, grandchildren) need to hear including how trains are fun to ride and the staff is warm and friendly. Perhaps parents should get the "training" because they are the ones who should teach and model safe practices. (I am a retired health and safety professional, and a certified teacher, so this goes beyond my perspective as a grandparent.) Of course, a 2 1/2 year old doesn't get anything out of these materials, so he was neither helped or harmed. We enjoyed his reaction to many phases of the trip and got some great photos.
We had a wonderful time and the whether was great.
Ride was shorter than expected.
It's always a great time. This year there was some people there that were very informative about the car we were in and pointed out some rail shows that I might be interested in.
I had a child in a wheelchair and your staff were very accomodating, getting the lift for us and making sure that our ride was enjoyable.
It was a great short first train ride for my 3 year old sun. Loved having the windows open. Awesome that there's a bathroom on the train. Booking was easy and I was even able to easily change our time. Check in was super easy. Staff was very friendly. Thank you!!
The staff was nice and I like how easy it was to board...just show the receipt on my phone and that's it. Nothing to print, no need to stop at any sort of station first. I just wish the view was better on the side we were sitting on. It didn't dawn on me to sit on the Lake side. Oh well....that's no one's fault. It was a nice time for a good price! Our toddler enjoyed it.
Train was clean, staff was friendly. My kiddo loved it! Thanks!
It was fun but it would have been nice tohave an activity or snack on board.
