The wait was about 20 minutes for the train, so Allison entertained herself with the mini ride on train and track:
They only had one enclosed car running on the train, so most of the people had to suffer through the ride in the cold. We were lucky enough to snag the last 4 spots in the closed car, which was a feeling better than winning the lottery. It was colder than Frosty's bum out that day!
I was disappointed that they didn't decorate the woods that we rode through with Christmas decorations. The ride seemed way too long when you only have snow covered trees to look at. Small kids were growing bored with the ride, but thankfully I had my Rudolph ears on. When they would start to cry, Allison turned on the light up noses to keep them entertained.
The specialty of the day was getting to visit Santa in the Santa Caboose!
We had a good time with our visit, though I still think it would have been improved with more holiday decor and maybe serving up some hot cocoa to the guests. It was definitely worth the price of 4 donated toys, so we will visit this event again next year, minus the train ride.
Do you like to ride on old steam trains?
