We had a delightful afternoon train ride with 3 grandkids. 6,3,1. Santa and Mrs Claus were warm and friendly, also students were cheery elves who handed out free popcorn and hot cocoa. Each train car was different and you walk between during the ride. Kids loved it. Even had a video going for little ones, art project station and snack spots. We had beautiful sunshine so enjoyed the open car too. a great way to start the holiday. Also just a few blocks away after the ride is a great bakery, and Christmas park with decorations. Younger Elementary kids/ parents and grandparents willl enjoy. Thanks for great hospitality… and a fun day
We took the Autumn Splendor trip with the Grandkids and it was awesome. They had hay bales set up with autumn material on them with a movie of Peanuts and the gang. They also had someone in that car there helping the kids make art projects like turkeys. They also served popcorn from the popcorn machine. It was awesome but seemed so short. It was an hour but we didn’t travel but a few miles.
What a great time for kiddos! Thanks for sharing the magic, Santiam excursion train staff! You were all amazing and what makes it so special.
we will definitely be starting a new tradition every christmas and go on the christmas train ride. we had a blast!!!! perfect !!! no complaints!!
We loved it!.. Had our company Christmas Party on the train and really enjoyed the train, and it’s helpful staff. We’ll certainly be back!
We took our 3 year old son on the train yesterday for the “Little One’s Valentines” ride. Not only did he love it, but we enjoyed ourselves too! It’s so nice to be able to move from car to car, and we enjoyed grabbing a drink at the full bar too! The setup of free popcorn and Valentines decorating station worked great for our son too! We will definitely be back!
Every ride is so much fun.
They have several events during the year , so it really makes the holidays fun . The train has a great observation deck . Adorable spot to eat inside. Adult only or Kid friendly depending on the event , guaranteed smiling and the kindest staff ever.
Totally worth it!
Love this being in town!!!!
