Very peaceful experience. Loved the train themed music played in-between the narrated tour. Our car was very cozy & minimum distractions (only adults). We got lucky. I did arrive 10min before take off & the depot gave me a courtesy call to make sure we were there.

I think it’s not worth spending over $200 (for a couple) for this “adventure”. The food they prepared for you is basically a fancy lunchables. Water was a small 8oz bottle. I was expecting more. Little disappointed ☹️
