I agree. It was the worst tour I have ever been on. It might be good for six year olds, that is about all.

The drive/train ride is okay, but not special. I live in Washington State and the views are very similar to what i see every day. If I was from Arizona or Florida or Kansas, I would have liked the scenery.

Sorry, but I have to disagree -- Four of us did Liarsville, and we all enjoyed it. The show was moderately amusing overall, but very funny in places. There was little history thrown in among the jokes. Silly as it sounds, we did enjoy the panning for gold -- and our grandchildren (especially the ten year old) were very impressed by those little flakes of gold!
The trip up on the train was great (spoken as an East Coast resident), and the bus trip back was also fun. I guess this is a case of "different strokes for different folks".

My wife and I really enjoyed Liarsville. Yes, it is corny but we had a lot of fun.

Liarsville is a recreated Gold Camp, totally fake with seeded gold with the panning. It can be entertaining. I have driven the Klondike Highway the entire length and it is scenic but far more so from the train at the summit. More important if you desire some historical information is to get to the Park Service Visitor center, Broadway and Second- lot of free stuff to do and see.

Did it! We did it with the Salmon Bake, which was good. The scenery, nothing special. The entertainment, somewhat corny, but cute. The experience was, SIMPLE, SIMPLE, SIMPLE.

Hope this helps.
