Join us as we embark on a magical journey and celebrate the Christmas season. The Santa Express and Northern Lights Limited are by far our most popular trains of the year, running every weekend (Fridays, Saturdays, & Sundays) from the day after thanksgiving all the way up to the weekend before Christmas Eve. All trains are about 1 hour and 20 minutes in length.
The Santa Express is our earlier train, where parents and kids alike are able to hop on board for the opportunity to visit with Santa Claus. As the trains travels through the cold winter wilderness, passengers will be able to visit with Santa and play with his Elves. Each child will also get a special gift from Santa’s own toy bag.
