Choo Choo!! Take a ride on the Santa Express. We load in Dickens Square and take a slow ride around the farm enoying the views of the trees and Pilarcitos Creek and, of course, passing through Gumdrop Pass Covered Bridge before returning to Dickens Square.
Sing Christmas carols to the holiday music that plays in each train car, whether you choose the open air car, the first car behind the engine or the caboose. Stay seated for the duration of the ride and all aboard!
