The 20-minute train route swings through a holiday light display that features over 1 million glimmering bulbs. Riders are offered complimentary hot chocolate and a candy cane from Kris Kringle himself.

The train will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday to Sunday through December 11 and daily from December 16 to 23. Those under age 2 get in for free. Admission for children age 2 to 12 is $9.95 and for adults, age 13 and older, it costs $13.95.
