Awesome experience!

Really enjoyed every moment on the train! This year they also have different theme for each car! They also prepared the Christmas song lyrics in case you needed! So much fun!

My family and I had a wonderful time!!

Tons of Christmas cheer and caroling Bubbles was fantastic with my niece and nephew. Very kind and cheerful person. The conductor of our train car #3 was equally fantastic! Definitely recommend and will be going again in the future
