Where are we going today?

If you LOVE trains, then you will want to visit this Ohio train attraction! In fact, it has a world record. It's actually the LARGEST indoor model trail display in the entire WORLD! How fun is that!?

Entertrainment Junction (clever name!) is unlike any other place for family entertainment. In fact, there is 80,000 sq feet of...well...trains!

The train display is 25,000 sq feet of model trains, all on an enormous train layout. There is more than 2 miles of track that will also take you on a panoramic journey through history! Take a ride through three distinct eras in US history, from the early days of the steam engine, right through to modern day classics. Great for kids to learn all about trains and history!

The train tracks are bustling all around you when you visit! Look below, look around, and if you look up, you might spot them there too! The models are carefully hand-crafted, with incredible detail on the towns, cities, factories, and even incredible landscapes!

Forest, valleys, trolley cars, subway trains....it's just like you are in the city, only the city is tiny!

Kids can even engineer their own locomotive that will actually work around a track, or they can ride the narrow gauge train. Amazing!

That's not all! There is a fun children's play area where kids can climb, slide and crawl, and that famous Funhouse filled with the only mirror maze in the area, a fun tilt room, discombobulating spinning vortex tunnel, and even a claustrophobia hallway. Be brave!

Trains, mazes, playgrounds...it's all happening at Entertainment Junction! Choo Choo!

    The people working today had the locked the doors on us and there were a few of us standing outside. This seems to be done deliberately, because minutes before people were walking right in. I am guessing that those working in your company were playing some sort of joke on the rest of us. There were minorities amongst us, perhaps this could have been there reason why. Nonetheless this was very rude and I find it insulting and unprofessional. Definitely need to ask the staff why they were so rude. Other then that this was an fun day to spend with...Read More

    This is really a place that is great fun for the whole family. While primarily a train layout, there are activities for people of all ages and EnterTrainment Junction has really worked to engage the only mildest of train enthusiast.

    Various elements of the train layout include buttons to activate trains, specific scenery, lighting, or sound effects. I believe there is also an audio tour (as I saw the numbers all over, but didn't think to ask before hand).

    This place is what makes America, America! Its the end result of someone's vision turned into reality. Art combined with imagination. Last time I was there they were putting in a scale version of the old Coney Island! Gotta come back to see its completion. Anyone remember the Shooting Star? My family had a blast there and took home a life time of memories.

My wife is not someone that gets excited about seeing model trains, however there was a scavenger hunt in which you challenged yourself to find certain elements of scenery throughout the layout that really got people into the detail and nuances.

For Kids there are a few stops throughout the layout where you can ride a small ride or sit down. Also, at many viewing points there are steps to stand on for those that are young or vertically challenged.

For the average adult you are looking at around $15 dollars. Our group of 7 adults took nearly 2.5 hours wandering the layout and the time seemed to fly right by.
