Take a ride with Santa!

We have received news from the North Pole that Santa will be riding our trains departing from the Uxbridge station only on Saturdays and Sundays beginning November 26th through to December 18th.


Ride on our decorated train and enjoy on-board entertainment. The best part is Santa, who will visit each child at their seat. This is a great photo opportunity! Each child will also receive a gift bag upon departing the train.

In addition to your train ride capture more holiday memories with the Santa Passport ($10 + HST per child). The passport includes a ‘Candy Cane Hot Chocolate’ at the Tin Cup Caffe, a surprise present from Presents, Presents, Presents, create and mail a customized letter to Santa at Blue Heron Books, decorate an ornament at Little Acorn, and Santa's Reindeer Soap created by Savon Du Bois. Adults, Parents and Grandparents tag along for FREE!

Please schedule your visit around your train schedule and participating stores hours (11 am - 4 pm). A special note for those on Trip 3, pick up your Santa Passport at the station 1.5 hours prior to your departure time to ensure you can enjoy the treats at the local shops.

Purchase in advance, as there are only 100 passports available per day.
