GET IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT ABOARD THE TRAIN TO CHRISTMAS TOWN
New for 2019: a book sequel “All Aboard the Train to Christmas Town” will be available for pre-order!
Feel the holiday magic in the air the moment you arrive! Have your official Train to Christmas Town ticket ready to be punched by the conductor as you board our real working train. The music begins as we depart the station and you’ll be clapping along to our peppy theme song. Meet other book characters like Bumblebee the cuddly polar bear and the postman delivering letters to Santa.
Elves will be dancing in the aisles leading sing-alongs of favorite Christmas songs. When you hear the “Chocolate Christmas” song begin to play you’ll know it’s time for cookies and hot chocolate to be served!
Before you know it we’ll be arriving at Christmas Town so gather together to share the views from the window. Wave to Santa and his elves before they climb aboard to walk through the railcars to greet each boy and girl and present them with a special gift. Be sure to have your camera ready to capture this moment!
We are excited to welcome new riders aboard and returning ones who want to continue the holiday tradition of visiting Santa by train.
Please note both book volumes will be available to pre-order with your tickets.
