Celebrate the holiday season in a uniquely festive way aboard the 26th Annual Santa Express. Santa will visit as you take in the spirit of Christmas past on an early 1900s adventure. All cars are kept comfortably warm using the over century-old tradition of steam heating or coal-fired stoves, just like at the North Pole.

A uniformed conductor will welcome you aboard and collect your tickets. Once aboard, Santa takes time to visit each and every family at their seat during the 55-minute ride. Santa’s elves are also aboard and help spread Christmas cheer with small gifts for the children. Joining the passengers aboard the train again this year are local high school choirs, inviting passengers to join in singing some of your favorite Christmas carols.

There are four Santa Express departures each day at 10:00, 11:30, 1:00 and 2:30. Trains travel the entire 7-mile round-trip route. Rides last 55 minutes.

WINTER WEATHER NOTICE: Santa Express trains operate as scheduled regardless of weather conditions. If driving through winter weather please plan extra travel time and arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your train’s scheduled departure time.
