Are you looking for somewhere special and different to go this holiday season with your family or friends? Well, our family had a really enjoyable time experiencing all the Santa Express Train ride has to offer just last weekend. It combines a classic train ride to the Royal Gorge, but the best part is seeing the ‘North Pole’ on the way there. Also, all the guests were not only able to see Santa and his elves waving to us from the North Pole, but they came aboard the train and said hello and took pictures with all of us.
We are all looking for that something special to do to make this holiday season special and memorable. So, we thought this was the right time to experience the Santa Express Train with our family. My husband, our eight-year old daughter and I decided to take the ride on the Santa Express Train and we were so excited to see what is was going to be like. We were lucky we made a reservation because the train was very full, which made the trip even feel more festive with all the guests collectively singing songs and feeling the holiday spirit together.
The journey was so entertaining with the all the activities they have during the trip, which made it really fun for the kids. They make children feel relaxed by suggesting they wear cozy pajamas for the ride. The Christmas music they play during the ride and Santa’s elves will make you feel like Christmas is just around the corner with the real life experience of Christmas. About thirty minutes into the ride, you turn a corner in the canyon and all of a sudden there is the North Pole with beautiful Christmas lights and decorations. This is when Santa and some of his elves board the train to pass out a special holiday bells to every child while he visits with each one, takes their Christmas wish list they filled out during the ride and of course, take pictures with Santa. Then we rode deeper into the canyon and then turned around for the ride back while the staff played fun games with the kids and sang songs for the guests, the total ride time was about an hour and a half. When the ride was over, our daughter sad because she wanted it to last longer since she was having so much fun with the staff and the other kids on the train!
In order to make your tummy happy during the ride, you will also get free cookies and hot cocoa that we just loved. They also have a great dinner selection that can be pre-purchased beforehand or ordered during the ride for each rider on the Santa Express Train.
There are several thousand people who ride the Santa Express Train each year, so tickets sell out quickly. So, I suggest to reserve your seats now or you will miss the chance for this very special and memorable holiday experience!
