Trip Information

Each ticket includes a 1-hour train ride, hot cocoa, a souvenir mug, and a cookie.

Santa’s elves will be on board the train to guide passengers in holiday sing-a-longs, elfish games, and fun festive activities. Children can remind Santa how nice they have been all year with a letter to Santa.

All the way from the North Pole, Santa Claus joins us for a visit with each family. Don’t forget your camera! Santa and friends are sure to bring smiles and joy to all aboard.

Feel free to come dressed in your cozy PJs to add even more magic to your holiday experience.

Seating will be available in our indoor cars. We will seat each party in order of arrival time.
If you would like to be seated with passengers booked under a separate reservation, please indicate so in the ‘additional notes’ section of your reservation.

Reviews / Testimonials

I had a great time on the train last Friday night, the beer selection on the Refresher is really good!

This is such a fun and unique experience and the staff is so amazing and hardworking to make sure their guests have a great time! Would recommend it over and over!

We went on the Magical Christmas Train and it was the best holiday train we have tried. It was worth the drive from the Bay Area and we will return next year.
