  • My wife and I really enjoyed the train ride up that canyon. The rock formations are fantastic and the views are unbelievable. This is well worth the trip and we would absolutely do it again. The service was excellent. The drinks were very tasty. Everything about it was enjoyable. My neck is actually stiff from looking up at the mountains. Highly recommended.
  • The train ride was awesome. The scenery is beautiful. You can have a nice meal and a drink, if you would like. You can also go to an open train car during your ride. You have a wonderful view of the mountains and the opportunity to take some beautiful photos. It is family oriented.
