The Santa Express Train is fun activity to do with your family during the holiday season. We went last year and had a great time! Colorado’s favorite Christmas train takes you on a 1.5-hour ride through Colorado’s Royal Gorge to the North Pole. It is chock-full of holiday cheer! You’ll find children wearing their pajamas, listening to Christmas stories, singing Christmas carols and enjoying homemade cookies and cocoa. Guests of all ages enjoy views of the Royal Gorge on the way to the North Pole, which is decorated like a true Christmas town, including thousands of holiday lights. Once Santa boards the train at the North Pole, children await their turn to share their holiday wish list and receive their very special Santa Express Train gift.


It runs through the Royal Gorge this Nov. 18 through Dec. 24 up to three times per day. Skip the fast food on the way and eat local on the train instead for lunch or dinner. Plus, there’s a fully stocked bar featuring local microbrews, libations and wine available on any class of service.
