This is only for the Saturday at 11:30AM ride. Please check out our other events for tickets to different rides. 

Passengers will be entertained with holiday melodies and dance routines by the elves of the theater and dance club of Burr and Burton Academy. Christopher Pop-In-Kins will be hidden on every train to see who’s been naughty and nice. Santa and Mrs. Claus will make a surprise visit to provide every child with a special gift.

This Christmas elf loves to play hide-and-seek almost as much as he loves little children. Every time your child closes his or her eyes and goes to sleep, Christopher Pop-In-Kins finds a new hiding place. He loves nothing more than to watch your child race around looking for him the next morning. Of course, they’ll both giggle with delight when he's found.

Bring Christopher and Christina Marie Pop-In-Kins into your home for the holidays and create treasured memories that your family will remember forever. Christopher Pop-In-Kins remains one of the oldest, most loved Christmas elves available today. Holiday traditions are an important way for you to connect and grow with your children. And now you can easily add more precious memories to your sacred Christmas festivities year after year.

Boarding begins at 11:15am and the Train leaves at 11:30am. ALL Trains leave on time as required by the Rail Road Company scheduling. Please arrive early enough to pick up your tickets and be ready to start boarding at 11:15am.
