The Christmas Train will depart every 15 minutes bringing children on a magical journey to see Santa Claus at the “North Pole.” While waiting to see Santa, children can read with Mrs. Claus, decorate Christmas cookies, play carnival games, and jump in the bounce houses.

Upon arriving at the “North Pole,” families can sip on hot cocoa at the Elf Shack, snack on cookies and get their picture taken with Santa. Families are encouraged to bring the cameras to this special event to capture all your special holiday memories together as a family.

The cost of the Christmas Train is $10 per person, and children under the age of 24 months will ride for free. Parking is $3 per vehicle on weekdays, and $5 per vehicle on weekends. (Parking is complimentary after 5pm)
