The Essex Steam Train is a great activity for little kids because of the novelty of riding on a train. The scenery is great during the fall, but is nothing to write home about during other seasons. An average attraction.

My kids had a so much fun on the train and river boat! We have been twice and are planning another trip during summer vacation. This is a great day trip!

Essex Steam Train and Riverboat is a very cool place to visit if you're into old trains. There are many antique passanger cars and a train club has a huge model train set-up inside one of the buildings. They also sponsor events like Day out with Thomas, Polar Express and The Santa Special. My suggestion is to schedule your tickets for very early if you're doing one of the events. The place fills up pretty quickly by mid-morning, but if you're one of the first ones there, you get a few hours to see everything before the crowd. They also have dinner trains and riverboat cruises scheduled out of their station. Check out their website!

The Essex Steam Train & Riverboat is a very nice place to visit, but I wouldn't recommend paying $24 a ticket for the train and boat ride. I thought it was really boring. I actually fell asleep on the boat ride. If you've been on boat rides before, then i would go. The idea of going on a Steam Train sounds great, if only there was something to see on the train ride. All you get is tree after tree. The same basic view you get driving to get the the train station. And I would not recommend sitting close to the front of the train with the windows open. If you do be prepared to be covered in soot.

I give it a 3 star because the area is beautiful and they have alot of trains on display that you don't have to pay to see. Good place to stop by for a pinic lunch.
