Video: Hop on the All-Smiles-Aboard Train
The new trackless train at Great Lakes Mall will be raising money for the Western Reserve Model Railroad Museum during a special event Saturday
Some things you expect to see at a mall. For example, a mall isn't a mall without a food court, power walkers or a Hot Topic.
But a trackless train?
That one's unique to Great Lakes Mall.
All Smiles Aboard is a new business that just started running this month at the Mentor mall. It offers shoppers an 8-minutes train ride through the retail center.
Its owner, Brian Davis, said he got the idea after seeing something similar at a mall in Florida.
Davis is throwing a celebration Saturday to announce All Smiles Aboard's arrival. It will have prizes, coloring stations, model trains and, of course, train rides.
Moreover, 50 cents of each $3 train ride will go to benefit the Western Reserve Model Railroad Museum in Mentor
