The lines are usually short. The trian is a live steam train which gives it a little better review in my book. The cars are larger and pretty compfortable. As you ride through the park there is also western scenery. The train goes very slow. You can almost walk faster than the train was going which is my biggest complaint.

The line is never very long and it loads a lot of people at once. Also they sometimes run 2 trains, one is named "SCOOTER" and the other is named "JANELLE". It takes a really long time to build pressure and get ready to leave though. Its good for the whole family, a great way to just relax and rest your legs. You go through an old Western town and an Indian tribe. Its a pretty long line and you get to see the Trailblazer, the Storm Runner, and the Sidewinder, along with many other rides. The many scenes are great photo ops.

Random Fact ~ Janelle has 5 cars and Scooter has 4 cars.

P.S. This isnt a steel coaster.

I do like the feeling like we are in the west. The scenes are neat and a good thrill for kids. Just something a little different for when It's time to give the coasters a break.

Pretty good railroad. It is sort of in its own little world.

Its a pretty good train ride with good theming. I wouldnt really consider it a roller coaster it has a few hills but many. Its a junior coaster at best. I would take children on it. I like the ghost town section of the ride the best. It would be better if it went around the whole park.

This railroad is unlike other railroads. The one in Bush Gardens Willianmsburg was a train just to transport you around the park, and it just so happened that it passes fantastic veiws of the coasters. The one in disney went through rides (whopee) had a feeble attempt to theme it and it was just a railroad, too. But this one is different. It has great themeing, with cowboys and such. And its an effective way to move around the park (the monorail is horrible). A definate ride, even if you dont like trains!

Im usually a big fan of train rides but this one was dissapointing. when i went 2 years ago it actually looked like it was in need of some maintenance. One of the few dissapointing things for me at this wonderful park.

A neat little train ride. It is kind of short so I wouldnt wait too long for it. It does provide some good views of the "Trailblazer" roller coaster. It is worth a few rides though. Little kids especially will like it.
