Santa arrives at Strasburg Rail Road for a very special holiday, train event, Santa’s Paradise Express! Kicking off on Thanksgiving weekend, families can join Santa on his journey to spread the magic of the season and to bring a smile to every child. This year, Santa’s Paradise Express will chug along the tracks November 23-25, December 1-2, 8-9 and 15-16, 2012.
Children enjoy a 45-minute train ride as Santa, carolers and musicians stroll from car-to-car on the journey to Paradise, PA and back. Santa greets each child aboard the train and gives them a train-themed gift (for children ages 3 to 11). The holiday festivities continue on the platform of the East Strasburg Station as the air is filled with sounds of the season and holiday decorations adorn the station.
After the train ride, children are treated to old time holiday storybook readings in the caboose at the station. Families can also enjoy the Tinsel Trolley ride (a self-propelled motor car), a warm, fun trip down the tracks, all included in the ticket price.
