Celebrate a special event, bring the family
The Sacramento River Train was such a fun experience. I had two kids with me, and they had the best time. Being able to freely walk to each car was really nice. The park halfway was a really cool experience. I don't think the kids will ever forget it. Thank you for the great memories.
From start to finish, the experience was excellent. We came as a family (husband, self, our 3 and 5 year old sons) to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were greeted as we got out of our car, walked through the boarding. "Stumpy" engaged with our kiddos. Each "character" answered their questions and had fun with them. Even at the stop, getting to "pan" was such fun for them. Learning about the train, the region, and history was informative and kept the experience flowing.
