My 3 year old loved this! Such a great experience. Santa took time with every kid and it was not rushed. She loved the take home bell. The sing a long, the magic. And the best part she still talks about today was that Santa was in his pyjamas hahahaa cant wait for next year!

I took my 3 year old granddaughter. The cookie was a hit and the hot chocolate was the right temperature for a little one to handle on a moving vehicle. She was mesmerized by the whole experience and couldn't stop talking about her visit with the wonderfully authentic Santa and Mrs. Claus. The gift of a bell was a nice... More

Took a Sunday lunch train ride and really enjoyed our trip. It takes you through the lovely forks for the credit area and back country between Orangeville and Brampton There was a great little band on board and we enjoyed excellent food !!

This was our first year riding the Santa train. They severe hot chocolate and gingerbread cookies while a guitarist strolled up and down the aisles singing carols. The best is that you get a one-on-one visit with the Big man himself at your seat. Our 6 month old loved it! This is going to be an annual adventure for us.... More

What could be more exciting for a little kid so close to Christmas!!? Carols, hot chocolate, cookies and a visit with Santa all on a moving train! We've been twice and can say staff did a great job! my only complaint is it could be longer! Get your tickets early as these sell out fast!

Fun, great experience to share with your kids, family and friends. Santa comes to each seat and each child gets a turn on Santas lap. Santas helpers serve cookies and hot chocolate.

The scenery from the rail car of the Niagara Escarpment through the Orangeville Golf course and the Forks of the Credit was a perspective not seen from the county roads.

We had such a terrible time on this trip, we were counting down the time until it was over. It was caused by the people who were sitting next to us. They were terribly rude, playing videos on their cell phone so loudly, and trying to disturb us. They were upset we would not trade spots with their friends so... More
