Great place to visit for people of all ages. A special hit amongst people with kids. Always bring an extra layer, woods could be cold. I haven't seen too crazy waiting times. There is a smaller track if you walk down the hill , which is totally free (donations). I have seen very enthusiastic and elderly people running the tracks and it is just wonderful having them around. They are following proper sanitization and distancing. Thanks!

We took our 11mth old son here to ride the train. The line wasn't long at all and the weather was perfect. We went around 430 on a Sunday. I'm not sure if that's when the lines aren't long, but we only had a 6min wait. It's great for younger kids because the train ride itself isn't that long. I would definitely recommend bringing your kids here.
