For many families, part of the joy of the holiday season is experiencing the magic of Santa Claus. There is no better way to do that than by hopping on board The Santa Express to the North Pole.
From now until December 27th, children and adults can relax on this winter wonderland excursion wearing your warm, comfortable clothes – or even your pajamas! The Royal Gorge Railroad in Canon City is where the Express boards, and the festive train ride takes you to the “North Pole”, where it is decorated like a true Christmas town – complete with over 30,000 holiday lights!
While you are cozied up on the train, you will enjoy complimentary hot chocolate and a cookie, listen to your favorite Christmas tunes and take in entertainment by Santa’s elves. When you arrive at the North Pole, a special guest makes an appearance – Santa jumps on board to give the children a gift.
Once the train returns from the North Pole, Santa awaits to greet all the kiddos once again. Make sure they have their Christmas wish list ready to share with him as they will get the chance to sit on his lap, tell him what they want and get their picture taken.
Seeing is believing, so make reservations early to lock in your day! The dates are selling out fast; go online to buy your tickets, your pre-purchased meal packages and the photo opportunity for your child’s visit with Santa. You don’t want to miss this special holiday trip where you’ll feel like you are taking part in the movie The Polar Express!
