Dr Seuss trolley was so much fun. Seeing all the Seuss images made my day. It's colorful and bright in this area. I can't wait to go back to see Dr Seuss land!! Going around the restaurant was kinda beat seeing a different angle of the detour. Beware there are steps to get to train. The ride is super gentle.
While not exciting for adults, this ride provides a much needed rest. Ride atop the rails and enjoy the breeze while you rest your weary feet. My daughter loved this ride, especially seeing the sneetches in the lake! Staff was kind and courteous helping guests on and off the ride. It was a much needed relaxing break, while providing some pretty cool views of the IOA Park.
Once upon a time, there were a couple of twenty-something park visitors. One liked roller coasters, one didn't. They went in search of a ride they both could enjoy. They walked and they walked and they walked until they came to the Trolley Train Ride. Debating if they were too old, they decided to try it out. The Florida summer breeze blew through their hair as they rode the left track (mainly outside), listening to the stories told through their train's speakers. Children laughed around them and families oo-ed and ah-ed over the wonderful theming throughout the ride. The twenty-somethings felt a little silly riding it without a child but enjoyed it thoroughly.
The best past of this ride is the view out over the lagoon at Islands of Adventure. It's a nice break from the miles you will walk in the park and for anyone who grew up on Dr. Seuss (if you didn't, I'm so sorry for you), it's a nice stroll down memory lane.
5 stars if you are a small child or an adult with tired feet. This ride has two separate tracks. This biggest difference is that the one on the right goes through the top of the Circus McGircus restaurant. If it's raining or you just want to see inside the restaurant without bumping into a child or if it's raining, choose this option. If the weather is nice, choose the left train and spend more time outside. Great theme throughout the ride. It's not exciting but it is sweet and whimsical. A nice break.
As it was raining, we decided to do some training. Seuss' trolley Train that is...a great ride for young and old. All was well, until... near the end when our train stopped short and it was no sport. But, really no big deal we didn't have any small children with us.
