This Magical Arizona Train Ride Will Take You To The "North Pole" This Month
It's the most magical time of the year! If you're feeling festive and want to celebrate the holidays in style, you should go on the Verde Canyon train ride in Arizona. It will be decked out in Christmas decor and will take you on a magical ride.
The Magical Christmas Journey is available now through December 28. On this joyful trek, you'll be taken to the "North Pole."
The one-hour round-trip ride costs between $35 - $45 per adult and begins by starting on "Santa's private railway." These special tracks will take you through an illuminated tunnel before arriving at the North Pole.
Life-sized buildings decked out in holiday splendor will greet you as you pass by. Mrs. Claus and Mr. Claus, along with elves that wave and smile during that time too.
You'll get to see Santa's workshop, Sugar & Spice Cafe, the Ugly Sweater Factory, and more. Before you leave, Father Christmas hops aboard and joins you for the trip back to the depot.
Wear your favorite pajamas, holiday sweater, or matching outfit with your pals for this enchanting ride. It might get a little chilly, so you should bring a coat too.
Before you head over to the North Pole, you can meet Flurry the bald eagle before heading into the mini-village at the train station.
The tiny home retreat will provide you with an experience of what it's like to view the world from a bird's eye. Pretty neat, huh?
Children will even be given a pair of eagle wings to strap on before entering. It makes for a truly wonderful experience.
This train experience is available on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, with departure times at 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
During the ride, you'll be able to get yummy seasonal drinks from the "elves" and car attendants.
Whether you're a fan of the holidays or not, this ride will get you into the joyful spirit.
