Monday December 5, 2011see more by jen
It’s the season, once again for Irvine Park Railroad’s annual Christmas Train! Take your family and friends and hop aboard for an enchanting night ride through historic Irvine Regional Park to meet Santa Claus.
The train will depart every 15 minutes from the brightly-lit train station and drop passengers off at the North Pole. It truly is a totally magical event for the kids. I have tickets to give away, make sure to enter below!
For those of you who haven’t been before, Christmas Train tickets may be purchased online to ride the train at a specific date and time. When you arrive you can then get in line and board the train any time during the hour for which you purchase tickets. You can also buy tickets in person.
While waiting to board the train, there are many activities for children to enjoy in Santa’s Village located next to the train station. Prices vary per activity. They open one hour prior to when the Christmas Train runs and include:
Story Time with Mrs. Claus * Christmas Cookie Decorating * Carnival Games * Santa Claus Moon Bounce
* Christmas Coloring Corner * Picture Stands
At the North Pole, visitors may purchase coffee, hot chocolate, freshly-popped popcorn and cookies from the Elf House Snack Bar.
Visitors may take their own pictures with Santa or you may purchase a picture taken by Irvine Park Railroad. Each 5” x 7” photo will be presented with an Irvine Park Railroad border and available for pickup shortly after being taken.
After visiting with Santa, hop back aboard the train and enjoy the colorful Christmas lights and decorations, as well as the magical “Tunnel of Lights”, on the ride back to the station.
When visiting the Christmas Train, remember to dress warmly, bring a camera and arrive early to avoid crowds.
