It is an enjoyable ride along side the Woodlands waterway. Family Friendly and just ok. Please be aware that sometimes the boats are not working, so make sure you check with the park ranger.

It has been quite some time since I enjoyed the trolley rides. I decided to enjoy another ride and see a new boat house parked trolley's that do not run. I wonder what happened

The boats are there, but they are not operating. We were told by a Ranger that Harvey flood damaged them. However the road trolley is working. It is free and air conditioned.

As a long time resident & fan of The Woodlands, I am wondering why this attraction is still being funded & operated. It goes nowhere & there is nothing to see. It’s a great idea in the wrong spot. Please move it to the lake!...More

The only public transportation at Woodlands. The landscape is great, and the frequency is surprisingly higher than expected. Also, the bus is great in the inside, and reminds old trolleys. Great for going around at night and enjoying Woodlands Waterway

Good clean fun! The kids love it! Good break to just drive around and see different things! The best part the Trolley is free!

The boats are very slow, but you can relax and enjoy the view down the river way. There are stops along the way if you want to get out to go shopping or eat at the restaurants.

I truly enjoy walking the Waterway. You can take little side trips to explore the area. Children may enjoy the boat ride.

typically, there is a 20 wait between trolleys, but they have construction right now. They go as fast as they can
