Wow I was very amazed at the bad reviews on here! We went ( a family of 3) for a total of $90 on the Christmas North Pole flyer. We had a very nice experience. I do have to agree ...

This train picks up in Cedar Park and takes you to Burnet for a 2 hour stop. Burnet is a town of nothing to do. As with any small town, everything is closed on sundays. If you do ...

We had a good time!! 12/13/2011

Wow I was very amazed at the bad reviews on here! We went ( a family of 3) for a total of $90 on the Christmas North Pole flyer. We had a very nice experience. I do have to agree the scenery is not that great, back yards and brush mostly...there are a few places it opens up to a big field of trees...and it was full of yellow red and green trees during this time of year so it was pretty! more

overpriced, not what it seems, uncomfortable 1/14/2009

They catch your attention with a great marketing add but once you bought your ticket and get on the train. You find out real quick how exaggerated their add is. Here's what to expect if you get on the Austin Steam Train Pros: they have lights in the parking lot Cons: staff, food, train ride, price more

The BIGGEST Scam since the PONZI SCHEME 1/14/2009

Austin steam train will rip you off. We were told our cabins would be heated. We went on the New Years Eve Flyer, the entire night we were chilled to the bone in our seats that cost us $85 dollars per person. Next, the fare included as much beer and wine during the night as we like. We were not told that the beer they served us was going to be extremely WARM. No surprise, they purchased the cheapest wine they could find and dispensed the wine in tiny little clear plastic cups that measured out less than one cup per little glass. Imagine being stuck for 3 hours on a train filled with people; going through turbulence; freezing; and trying to walk from the back of the train, in and out of the cabooses to the middle for a really small tiny cup of cheap warm wine. Then encourage yourself to do this 10 more times to maybe make 2 glasses of wine you would have had at home. Pros: great place to take your mother-in-law Cons: everything about the entire show more

Not worth the price. Staff was unfriendly. Good for people with younger children. 4/20/2008

This train picks up in Cedar Park and takes you to Burnet for a 2 hour stop. Burnet is a town of nothing to do. As with any small town, everything is closed on sundays. If you do go I would suggest you go on a Saturday. The town doesn't seem to have the tourism thing down yet. The train drops you off in Burnet in front of an HEB Grocery Store. When we were dropped off we thought we would be able to find somewhere local to eat. All that was open were fast food chains and small cafes where they only served snack like items. I was expecting Burnet to have the same charm as the other surrounding small towns of Austin (Fredericksburg, Gruene, and Georgetown). NOT the case. This would be good for families or an older crowd. Not for a younger adult crowd (and when I say younger adult I mean 30's). Pros: Good for famlies and older adults Cons: Unfriendly Staff. Not worth the price. more
