Christmas Train Ticket Giveaway

Now that Thanksgiving is past, I feel like I am REALLY getting into the Christmas spirit, so I thought it fitting to kick off the week with this Irvine Park Railroad Christmas Train ticket giveaway!

This is one of the best OC Christmas events for kids in my opinion.

Take your family for an enchanting night train 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.

Christmas Train tickets may be purchased to ride the train at a specific date and time. When you arrive, you get in line and board the train any time during the hour for which you purchase tickets. Tickets may be purchased online, visit for details.

While waiting to board the train, there are many activities for children to enjoy in Santa’s Village located next to the train station. Activities will open one hour prior to when the Christmas Train runs and include storytime with Mrs. Claus, Christmas cookie decorating, carnival games, bounce house, coloring corner and picture stands

At the North Pole, visitors may purchase coffee, hot chocolate, freshly-popped popcorn and cookies from the Elf House Snack Bar. A full kitchen menu is also available at the train station.

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.

Visit this Irvine Park Railroad Christmas Train page online for dates and times the train is running, along with prices for the activities.

The cost to ride the Christmas Train is $10.00 per person. Children younger than 24 months ride free.

The parking for Irvine Regional Park is $3.00 per vehicle on weekdays and $5.00 per vehicle on weekends. Parking for the Christmas Train is free after 5:00 PM.
