    Made for a fun afternoon for dad and son. Young kids will enjoy dressing up, playing in the pre-K room and pushing the big red button to make the model train go. And the General is impressive!

    Scheduled an unguided tour for my son's third birthday party. After the kids explored and played in the preschool area we headed to the playground across the street for cake. Perfect party!

    Grab coupons from the web site or ask for AAA discount. The General is a perfect Atlanta get away. Playground across the street and the total train experience for kids.

    Much bigger than expected. It took us two hours to go through. There is a short movie about the great locomotive chase.
