Join us for a nostalgic Christmas adventure aboard a historic train ride to pick up Santa! On our journey to the North Pole, enjoy a train excursion while listening to the sounds of the season. Upon arrival at the North Pole, Santa boards the train and travels with us on our way back to New Haven. Families are encouraged to wear their pajamas for the ultimate experience. Upon arriving back at the station, you have the opportunity to visit with Santa and take your child’s photo with him in the depot!

The entire family can enjoy a cookie and hot chocolate when they visit Claus’s Kitchen Caboose before the train excursion. (No food or drink other than bottled water is able to be taken on the train. Some of our coaches have been reupholstered, prompting this change.) We do recommend that you arrive an hour prior to the train departure time to enjoy your cookie and hot chocolate and the small activities we have available for the kids!

NEW IN 2022! You can now choose your own seats when purchasing tickets (see the photo gallery below for photos of the interior of each coach option). Follow the online purchasing prompt and choose your own seats from the seating map. When choosing seats, keep these tips in mind:

Coach 1616 requires using steps to board.

Coach 1105 has 1 wheelchair accessible area for a wheelchair to lock in place.
