The A-Maze-N Funhouse features carnival classics such as a mirror maze, a tilt room, a vortex tunnel, and numerous optical illusions. The circus features sideshow tents each with an attraction, including a clown house and a black hole space encounter.
The Train Journey details the history of trains in the United states with a 25,000-square-foot G-scale model-train display, comprising 90 model trains and more than 2 miles of track. Spanning from the 1860s to the present day, exhibits invite visitors to feast their eyes on steam engines and modern diesel locomotives alike, which power through ornately detailed towns populated by handcrafted buildings, trees, bridges, and an 11-foot waterfall that fills the canals and lakes. Guests may also expand their minds in the interactive American Railroad Museum and romp through Imagination Junction. Guests can then take an audio tour to explore how the model was built, as well as learn some interesting bits of trivia about the history of trains.
Train hobbyist Don Oeters founded EnterTRAINment Junction in 2008 to showcase railroading in an educational and amusing way. Two years later, his 80,000-square-foot facility was voted Ohio's Best Family Entertainment Center of 2010. At EnterTRAINment Junction, train enthusiasts can visit the railroad museum, drive hand-cranked locomotives, or bounce, climb, and crawl through Imagination Junction, an interactive kids' play area. Their newest addition, the A-Maze-N Funhouse, features five disorienting sideshow tents, with attractions such as Curtain Chaos, Clown College, Outer limits, and the Mirror Maze.
At the centerpiece, a 25,000-square-foot indoor model train display dazzles visitors with 90 G-scale trains and 2 miles of track winding through handcrafted landscapes, including an 11-foot waterfall, thousands of trees, and scenes documenting railroad's early, middle, and modern periods. Each train car is the size of a loaf of bread, making it easier for groups to see it or break it into communal pieces, and Oeters and his staff continually tweak the locomotive's surroundings by adding seasonal touches and installing minor or major updates. Historical train artifacts, educational videos, and interactive exhibits await amblers in the railroad museum, and the Imagination Junction kids' area entertains youngsters with train-themed play structures.
