Holiday Express

Experience the magic as you take a one-hour, round-trip journey from Hill City to the North Pole where Santa will board the 1880 train and ride back to Hill City, taking time to visit with each child on the way. Passengers enjoy hot cocoa, a sugar cookie, and a special story on the way to the North Pole. Santa will hand out a small sleigh bell to each child on the trip.

Holiday Express First Class seating offers an elevated experience in our Hilyo caboose. This option is available on November 26 & 27 and December  18, 19, 23 & 24 only.

Holiday Express Spiked passengers enjoy everything received with a regular ride along with spiked hot cocoa in a keepsake mug! Adults only (21+), limited runs. Check out our new, Spiked only departures on November 26 & 27 and December 4 & 11 at 4:15 pm. This is a great office Christmas party outing or the perfect way to celebrate the holidays with friends and family. Call 605.574-2222 today or purchase online!
