Train Ride to Santa At Travel Town Museum Better than Ever

Share Article

After the second weekend of operation everyone agrees that the Train Ride to Santa at Travel Town Museum in Griffith Park is better than ever. Reopening on the weekend of December 7 and everyday starting December 13, families will be able to take a miniature train ride to visit Santa at his house at the North Pole. Once they arrive they will visit with Santa, get a picture with him, if desired, then get back on the train to return home along a decorated and music filled track.

For the fifth year in a row, Travel Town Train Museum in Griffith Park is hosting a unique holiday event starring Santa Claus and thousands of dancing lights and beautiful music. On December 7th, 8th and 9th and every evening starting December 13th through December 23rd, families will be able to take a miniature train ride to visit Santa at his house at the North Pole. Once they arrive they will visit with Santa, get a picture with him, if desired, then get back on the train to return home along a decorated and music filled track.

While waiting for Santa the kids and parents can visit with Rudolph and one of Santa's helper elves.

This event is operated by Travel Town Railroad in cooperation with the City of Los Angeles, Department of Recreation and Parks. It is a wonderful alternative to visits to the mall and is a perfect addition to a Holiday Evening in Griffith Park before or after the Department of Water and Power's spectacular Festival of Lights.

We are selling tickets by reservation this year as well as at the gate. Tickets may be purchased at the Travel Town ticket booth or online at http://www.TravelTownRailroad.com .

Buy your tickets early to assure that you can have a seat on this special train ride.

Starting at 5 p.m. on the evenings detailed below, families may enter the Museum and board the miniature train ride at the gaily decorated station. While waiting to board they will be entertained by a dazzling dancing light show and a special corner of the museum where snowmen live and it snows all the time!

Once aboard, they will travel past the decorated train barn and Santa's Workshop to arrive at the North Pole. There they will disembark and visit with Santa, Mrs. Claus, Rudolph and Erin the Elf. Digital photographs will be available for $5.00. Families may take their own pictures if they wish. After they have finished their visit, guests will re-board the train and travel along the decorated ¼ mile of track back to the station. The Travel Town Museum Gift Shop will be open most evenings.
