    You should know that they did not return our calls or e-mails after repeated contacts.

    It was our fault, our children bought us a brunch train excursion and at the last minute we were unable to make it, my fault! I called the reservation office about rescheduling, I was willing to pay whatever fees they wanted but they have never followed up, our calls go unanswered, the reservation service says they schedule for seven small railroads and can't help us, but they would charge us again for another reservation if we really wanted to go.

    We had always wanted to try Mt. Hood RailRoad after seeing the advertisements and knowing that it was so close to Portland and used a Groupon to go on the Parksdale Excursion. I am not sure what I expected, but it wasn't an abdominal oblique workout that resulted from the uneven rail tracks or the cabin fever that resulted from the close quarters and low ceiling of the SkyDome seating (go for the normal seating, it's better because it's more rustic and open). The views were great, but the 2 hour train-ride to Parksdale and back felt a bit like a...Read More

    So disappointed. We wanted to take our three children on the Polar Express train this year and when we went to the website to purchase tickets we discovered we are unable to purchase seats in the parlor car or the upper and lower dome areas because we are a family of five. The last time we road the train our youngest was a baby and didn't require a ticket, so we didn't have any problem reserving seats in the lower dome. We wanted the upgraded tickets again this time around so our young children would have a table top to use for their hot chocolates...Read More

I feel bad for my children pooling $135 for us

You should know they are a one way deal, make sure you don't require anything, they don't respond.

The views were great, but the 2 hour train-ride to Parksdale and back felt a bit like a trap ("It's a trap!"). The views were just as nice from the road and I think, in the future, I'll just ride my bike in this area to get the same views without being trapped on a cramped train trying to avoid the feet and legs of the people across the table from me. Seems like it was a fun trip if you were a kid and had never ridden a train before. Glad I tried it, but don't think I'll be back.

So disappointed. We wanted to take our three children on the Polar Express train this year and when we went to the website to purchase tickets we discovered we are unable to purchase seats in the parlor car or the upper and lower dome areas because we are a family of five. The last time we road the train our youngest was a baby and didn't require a ticket, so we didn't have any problem reserving seats in the lower dome. We wanted the upgraded tickets again this time around so our young children would have a table top to use for their hot chocolates and cookies, instead of having to balance everything on their laps. We also wanted to upgrade our tickets for the souvenir mugs! But it appears our only options are to either sit in the coach seating with no tables and no mugs, or to pay for six tickets (an additional $28 charge) when we only need five seats.

To be honest, I feel discriminated against for having an odd number of children! We have decided not to go this year.
