The Train To Christmas Town
Based on the beloved children’s book, the Train to Christmas Town, our holiday ride recreates on board the story book tale that is sure to become a family favorite tradition!
The story follows the journey of Janice and her brother on their annual ride to Christmas Town but this year is different because their grandma isn’t able to go with them. Every year she prepares a special bag for them to open and enjoy during their ride. On board they share seats with their friends and woodland animals, they meet elves serving cocoa and cookies and eventually stop to welcome aboard a very special passenger, Santa Claus. Will all the holiday fun and heartfelt surprises in their bags help calm their worries about their Grandma?
Train to Christmas Town features an engaging cast of storybook characters including Wabash the squirrel, Zephyr the cat, and Bumblebee the bear, all going to Christmas Town on the train. It teaches the value of friends and family, keeping traditions, and how the magic of Christmas is for all ages, not just children.
You’ll feel the holiday magic in the air the moment you arrive! You’ll be greeted by our cheery staff and directed to gather your ticket before the conductor calls “All aboard! If you’re takin’ this train, time to get on board!” Have your official Christmas Town ticket ready to be punched by the conductor on the ride.
The music begins as we depart the station and you’ll be clapping along and motioning pulling on a train whistle “Whoo-whoo” along to our peppy theme song "Takin’ the Train to Christmas Town”. Elves will be dancing in the aisles leading sing-alongs with other 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 of the magical lighted town. Wave to Santa and his elves before they climb aboard to greet each boy and girl and present them with a special gift.
All our guests will enjoy other activities and games on board as they interact with the cast and crew. Kids will be able to play a game of I-Spy as they look for animal friends hidden throughout the car like the gentle snowy owls and Bubble and Squeek the chatty mice that frequent the train. We’ll be singing our theme song as we pull back into the station and we promise you’ll still have this tune on your mind all the way home!
The train ride lasts approximately 70 minutes from the time the train departs the station until it returns.
