This year, embrace the magic of the season at the Springs Preserve’s Holiday Express. Leave the world behind and embark on a special train ride to historic cottages and buildings that have been transformed into Santa’s magical village.
During this journey, guests will have a meet-and-greet with Santa, view a Nutcracker display, decorate cookies, partake in an interactive holiday story and create a magic reindeer craft guaranteed to bring Rudolf and friends to your home. Dash through the snow and join us December 10-11, and 17-23 for a very fun holiday celebration; train rides start at noon daily.
The Springs Preserve Holiday Express experience is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. Trips to Santa’s village aboard the Springs Preserve’s trackless train depart 10 times each day at 12 p.m., 12:30 p.m., 1 p.m., 1:30 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 4 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time.
Don’t forget your camera—because we’re keeping your time with Santa personal, there won’t be a professional photographer at Santa’s village. You are encouraged to bring your own camera or smartphone to document your Santa sighting.
Tickets are $10 per person, children 2 and under are free, and members pay $8. Tickets are available at springspreserve.org or at the Springs Preserve box office, 333 S. Valley View Blvd. (on Valley View between Alta Drive and US 95). Because spaces are very limited for each departure, you’re encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to guarantee admittance and to reserve your preferred date and time. Hot cocoa and a variety of light snacks will be available for purchase at Santa’s village.
