8th annual Train Ride to Santa's House at Travel Towm Museum

Griffith Park - The holiday season is here! Instead of waiting for Santa Claus to come to town, go and visit him while he makes his list and checks it twice and let him know you haven't been naughty but super nice!

For the 8th year in a row, Travel Town Transportation Museum in Griffith Park will host the annual Train Ride to Santa's House during the holiday season. On seventeen evenings between Thanksgiving and Christmas, families will be able to take a miniature train ride to visit jolly old Saint Nick.

The first train ride of the season will depart on Saturday, November 27, 2010 at 5:00 pm. Visitors will board at a festively decorated station while being entertained by a dazzling light show. Once aboard, passengers will travel past the reindeer barn and Santa's workshop before arriving at the North Pole, where photos with Father Christmas will be available. After their visit, guests will re-board the train and travel along the decorated 1/4-mile track back to the station.

Tickets are available by reservation and at the gate, if extra seating is available. Tickets are $7 per person; children 18 months or younger can ride for FREE. Reserved tickets can be purchased at the Travel Town ticket booth or online at Due to a 700 guest limit each evening, advanced ticket purchases are encouraged. Digital photographs with Santa will be available for $5.00 or guests may bring their own camera but will be limited to two shots.

The Train Ride to Santa's House is a wonderful alternative to visiting Santa at the mall and will be the only holiday light show in Griffith Park this year. The annual event is operated by Travel Town Transportation Museum in cooperation with the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks.

This year's schedule is: November 27 & 28, December 3-5, 10-12 and 15-23 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm (weather permitting train cannot operate in the rain). Travel Town is located at 5200 Zoo Drive, Los Angeles 90027.
