Choo Choo Kids Express

**Updated 4/4/12 - the train has new location at Center Court. **
From Sarah C.:

Don't be surprised to hear the toot toot of a horn followed by "All Aboard!" when you visit a local mall these days. The Choo Choo Kids Express train is running is several local areas malls.

D & I ventured over to Cary Towne Center on a rainy Saturday morning to check it out. I imagine it gets pretty popular as the day goes on, but at 10:30a we only had to wait a few minutes for the train to return to the "depot" outside of Belk and were first in line to board. The cost is $2 per rider and riders under 45" must be accompanied by a guardian (16 years or older). After paying our fee, I folded up the umbrella stroller and followed D into the blue car. (Note: you can leave your stroller at the "depot" area but do so at your own risk. Our umbrella stroller fit easily in the car with us but this might be more challenging during busy times when seats are a premium.)

After everyone was seated and doors secured, the conductor tooted the horn and off we went for a short ride. The train headed down the wing to Dillards, u-turned and headed back to the "depot" around the triangular section housing Dairy Queen and Helzberg Diamonds. The entire adventure was thrilling to my 2 year old who loved looking out the windows and waving to shoppers. Perfect rainy day entertainment.
