The Train to Christmas Town
"The Train to Christmas Town captures the spirit of the season with its warmth and charm. Your family will love it!
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
