Great place to bring kids for a train ride. Golden Gate Live Steamers is separate and can be found by walking down the path.

The steam train was an awesome surprise, for three bucks you can go for a quick little 13 minute ride around the property. For three bucks I feel like this is a great deal most amusement parks or other rides would only be a three or five minute activity, and they would be charging you $8 to $10. This is a great place for families to go.

I should have bought the multi-pass by now, considering how many times I've been back! All my friends are old foamers (aka rail fans) and we've always tended to be the only folks without kids each time, but it's always a sweet and wholesome time, forever worth it. The small details along the route are both endearing and enchanting. I don't wanna spoil it for you-- you'll see what I mean. Everyone involved in keeping this ride going seems genuinely enthused or content to be involved. Evidently, the smaller tracks are open at set times for toy train enthusiasts to bring out their own models ($50 annual membership, if memory serves me right). Looking forward to my next visit, and all the visits after!
