2017 Irvine Park Railroad Christmas Train GIVEAWAY

Disclosure: I was given tickets for review purposes. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 


It's the most wonderful time of the year when the Irvine Park Railroad decks
 the train and Santa arrives for the 22nd annual Christmas Train! There is
something special about twinkle lights, trees, and a train that takes you to Santa.
It makes me feel like I am a kid riding on the Polar Express. It's just magical!


And the Christmas Train isn't just for Christmas loving adults, the kids love it too!
We love having this Christmas tradition with the kids and I love to see how excited they
are to visit with Santa and share their Christmas wishes. He is definitely the best Santa in
Orange County. You can take pictures with Santa using your own camera,
or you can purchase a 5x7" photo taken by the Irvine Park Railroad.



Some helpful tips you'll want to remember when 
coming to ride the Christmas Train: 

TIP #1 BUY YOUR TICKETS EARLY AND ONLINE!
This is the only way to purchase tickets. Dates and times sell out quickly, 
so get your tickets as soon as you can!

TIP #2 - ARRIVE EARLY 
If you arrive early then you can avoid the crowds and get a good place in line.
Plus, you won't be rushed and stressed out! 


TIP #3 - DRESS WARMLY
It can get chilly at the North Pole and you don't want to be left shivering. So 
be sure to dress in layers and don't forget a your scarf.


TIP #4 - DON'T FORGET YOUR CAMERA
There are so many great photo opportunities that you'll be kicking
yourself if you don't bring a camera to catch them all.


TIP #5 - COME HUNGRY 
There are lots of yummy treats available for purchase! 
At the North Pole you can purchase hot chocolate, coffee, popcorn, hot pretzels and 
cookies from the Elf House Snack Bar. The full kitchen menu is also available 
at the train station.

One of my favorite parts of the evening is the twinkle lights tunnel.
It is so cool! I could drive through it over and over again. When you return to
the train station after your visit to the North Pole, you'll want to make sure you have
time for Santa's Village.


There are a lot fun activities and fun to be had at Santa's Village. You can do them
when the train returns you to the station or you can come early and enjoy them
before. My kids love decorating the Christmas cookies and playing the fun
carnival games and winning prizes.


Activities during the Christmas Train include:
Story Time with Mrs. Claus (FREE!)
Christmas Cookie Decorating
Ice Fishing
Carnival Games
Santa Claus Moon Bounce
Christmas Coloring Corner (FREE!)
Picture Stands (FREE!)
