If you have a child who is even a little bit interested in trains…I highly recommend a trip to EnterTRAINment Junction! We were looking for something to do during spring break so we decided to check it out…I had heard about it from a couple of friends but honestly did not know what to expect other than it had a lot of trains!
It’s easy to get to and conveniently located north of Cincinnati off of I-75 (just 2 exits north of IKEA for those who have been there) and it’s right off the highway so it’s easy to find.
We spent much of our time there walking through the huge indoor train display (an area of over half a football field and includes over 2 miles of track, 90 G-scale locomotives and 1000 cars) and my son was mesmerized! For older kids, they have a scavenger hunt and give you a list of things to find throughout the model train layouts and when we were there they had also hidden a bunch of Mickey Mouse and friends figures throughout which my son loved trying to find (easier for the younger kids).
Partway through the model train display is a great play area that has things for all ages. There’s a small train layout that the kids operate themselves by pressing buttons, there are a few wooden train tables, a large wooden train and caboose they can climb on and pretend to shovel coal and a huge climbing structure with slides and ropes (like a fast food play area but MUCH bigger!). And bonus….there’s plenty of benches for parents to sit and watch.
Interspersed throughout the train display was a railroad museum with information about the history and workings of the railroad and trains. A little too involved for my five year old, but would appeal to an older child or adults you had with you.
We paid a little extra to enter their newest attraction the “A-Maze-N FunHouse” which my son absolutely loved! It had four areas – a Curtain Maze, a Black Hole area with a spinning tunnel, a mirror maze and clown college.
Lastly, if you go from Memorial Day thru Labor Day, you can enjoy their outdoor attractions and engineer your own locomotive around a track in a hand-cranked railroad car or ride on a narrow gauge train.
They do have a small food counter in the lobby that serves hot dogs, soft pretzels, drinks, etc. But we stopped and had lunch before we got there and dinner on the way home after we left. They say no food or drink allowed in the model train display/museum/play areas but I would imagine non-messy snacks and cups for young kids wouldn’t be noticed.
Plan to spend about 3-4 hours there if you do both attractions (Model trains/play area and FunHouse). For that amount of time, I felt like it was affordable, especially if you search online for a coupon or Groupon or other deal.
I’d say it’s a great place to bring kids, especially if they are a train-lover like mine!
