    Recreate the magic of Christmas Eve aboard an authentic steam train. Passengers can wear their PJs and enjoy cookies and milk as they travel down the tracks. During the trip, a reader dressed in a Victorian nightshirt and cap will read aloud the classic poem, "The Night Before Christmas.” At the station visitors can enjoy storybook readings of other holiday classics aboard a heated stationary Caboose and a ride aboard the Tinsel Trolley, a self-propelled motorcar.

    Returning again this year, the popular Night Before Christmas Train runs on select evenings throughout the holiday season.  A portion of all proceeds collected from the sale of Night Before Christmas Train tickets is donated annually to the Clinic for Special Children.

    Parents, please note: While Santa Claus does make a brief appearance aboard this train in keeping with the classic story, this experience captures the wonder and anticipation of Christmas but does NOT feature Santa. If you’re looking for a train ride during which Santa visits with each family and pauses for a photo, please consider our Santa’s Paradise Express.

    Want to combine a meal with The Night Before Christmas Train? Consider our Christmas Feast!
