North Pole Limited

 

As our most popular annual event, North Pole Limited train rides have been a family tradition since 1999. During the magical holiday season, trains take riders on an imaginary journey to the North Pole. Along the way, you’ll be treated to refreshments, storytelling, and occasional sing-a-longs. As the Christmas train gently rolls down the rails, a number of lighted displays can be seen outside. Once the train pulls into the “North Pole,” a special guest boards for a visit.

Evening trains depart at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Earlier trips on have been added on select dates with departure times at 11:30, 1:30 & 3:30 p.m. During the return ride, Santa makes his way through the train cars to greet every child and presents a keepsake item to all the children. This event has become a family tradition for many...now in its 19th year!

The North Pole Limited 2017 season kicks off tonight (Nov. 24) - come on out and visit the North Pole with us!
