Assembly; Piece of cake! We spent around 45 minutes setting it up for the first time, and that included swatting cats away from all the Styrofoam. Most of that time is the individual play pieces and the track. The table itself is essentially five big pieces that snap together, really simple and easy to take apart. The track layout is simple, no issues with the pieces fitting. Table; Cool design printed on the top, it's very sturdy. I think "adventure town" may be overselling it, it's really more of a standard metropolis with a mountain. The mountain might allow for some skiing, which is adventurous, I suppose. No sweet jumps or other features I would call adventurous. Accessories; The set comes with several trains and a variety of different types of cars. They are wood and should last for a long time, they work well with other brands too. There are characters that portray people you'd find in a standard metropolis, see note above. Again, no edgy or adventurous characters or vehicles, ahem. I can clearly see they aren't exactly matching in scale, but kids seem unbothered by this fact. Play; Our four year old daughter loves this thing! She has played with the wooden train toys for a few years, but having the table makes it more fun to play all the time. Aside from the trains and tracks, the other accessories make it fun to play with other toys on the table as well.
