It was boring. Nothing to do and no entertainment. For hot chocolate, you have to travel to different cart and its always a long queue there. No entertainment. Its more like an round trip train while watching outside with long haul at various spots.

It was horrible. Our car was the only car that was freezing cold. The train stalled for some reason before we were even halfway and the engine had to circle back around to take us backwards to the station so we didn’t even get to complete our trip and were 45 mins late so our kids were starving. Awful experience that was supposed to be so fun.

Train broke down for an hour, no entertainment, BS cookies passed out after 2 hours and were sugar free, no caroling, Santa didn’t give two of my kids gifts, Couldn’t hear the story teller. Our cabin generator kept going out. Stay home. Nothing magical is happening on this train.

The train cars themselves were AMAZING as were the conductors and staff. However, as far as Santa, Mrs. Claus and the person reading the story, a little more excitement or verbal expression for the kids. Even though the wifi mike wasn't working, the person should've projected their voice. We will be going again but not for the Polar Express for that reason.

Your website is selling invalid vouchers not accepted at the vendor. Poor customer service on Groupon, will never buy anything on your website!

About Austin Steam Train Association

Austin Steam Train Association recreates steam-era railroading for guests who want a taste of the picturesque past. Rides aboard its diesel locomotive often include stops in Bertram to admire a restored 1912 train depot. Guests can ride in authentic cars from a variety of different historic trains. What's more, the diesel also hosts a variety of special events, including murder-mystery parties, holiday-themed rides, wine-tasting rides, and once-a-year, a kid-friendly adventure led by Thomas the Tank Engine.

When workers aren't running the trains, they're working on rebuilding them. The association originally began with the goal of refurbishing a Southern Pacific 786 locomotive that had sat in Austin park. It aims to get the locomotive back to working condition so it can sound its whistle across the countryside once again.
