Looks like July 16 for Utah, it is up in Ogden at the Ogden station. I'll have to make sure I have work off that day.

I'm trying to decide whether or not to battle the crowds here in Utah tomorrow for this. Did anyone go when the train stopped in Arizona, California, Colorado or New Mexico? What did you think? My kids are 6 and under; would they enjoy it?

I went at 9:30 in Utah and it was BUSY. 2 1/2 hour wait plus 1 hour in there.

We tried to go over my lunch hour but was told it would be a 3 1/2 to 4 hour wait. We didn't wait. DD #1 was happy enough to see the big trains and DD #2 slept through the whole thing entirely. It looked pretty cute for those who were waiting, though. My kid just doesn't have the patience and I have to get back to work.

I think it is until 6:00 p.m.--but you'd better get there much earlier if the wait continues to be so long.

FYI: my sister was there early enough to go pretty much right through. The inside of the train is really not geared towards young kids, so if you are under 10 it definitely is NOT worth the wait. They talk about the technology they used to make the movie and her youngest was really chomping at the bit.
