The best entertainment deal in the metro opens this weekend. The Kansas City Northern Railroad, located in Vaydik Park (6000 NW Waukomis Drive), costs 50 cents per person and will take you around the track twice in just under 7 minutes. The train is open Saturdays from 10 to 6 and Sundays and holidays from 12 to 6 while the sun is shining.
For $2 we ride the train and then throw rocks in Line Creek. Gentlemen-it is a great way to get the kids out of the house on Saturday morning so the wife can work out or scrapbook so you can sit on the couch in the afternoon and watch the NHL playoffs or the Yankees or Red Sox play on Fox.
The train can be rented for parties and 3 years ago this week we threw the 4 year old party of the year. We rented an inflatable and had it put up next to the train. Both the inflatable and the train were a fixed cost so I invited anyone I knew who had kids and we had upwards of 30+ kids riding the train or jumping. Everyone had a blast.
