A Gorgeous Virtual Train Adventure On My Blu-Ray Machine!
Bold Consumer | USA | 03/01/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I put this in the machine thinking I would just play it in the background while I was reading a book, but I watched every second of it. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen! Maybe I was just in the mood for this kind of a virtual adventure. It was probably some form of escapism. I forgot where I was and enjoyed traveling to some far-away places that were worth visiting.
During the train segments, I felt like I was on those trains. At times I was glad I wasn't on some of them because I would have been terrified at the long and extremely high bridges. Excellent photography! I've never been to Alaska and had no idea just how beautiful it was. I knew about most of the other parks and had visited them, but not from the viewpoint shown on this DVD.
I kept wishing all the train lovers in my family could see it.
After I finished the "Train" part, I thought I would go fix some lunch and let it continue into the lodge and hotel portion of the DVD, because that sounded pretty boring. It wasn't. I had to come back in and start that section over again and watched every second of it too. Some of the hotels took 3 hours riding pack-mules to get to and others could only be reached by long boat rides. One hotel overlooked Old Faithful, and the inside of it was worthy of a novel being written about it.
If this DVD is an example of the Scenic National Parks DVDs, I've got to have more of them!"
Nice synopsis of each trip

"I got this for my 79 year old dad for a Christmas gift, and he really enjoyed it. He'd been on one of the trips, so it was a lot of fun for him to see the train again. I wish each trip was a little 'meatier' and allowed more time to see the inside of the train, the view, etc. But overall, it was a nice little show and gave me a couple of good ideas about possible future trips."
