It's time to make plans for Santa trains

Posted October 31, 2012

It's Halloween. And it's also time to start making plans if you want to hop aboard one of the many Santa trains in North Carolina.

These popular rides feature the big guy and a train ride. Some are on kiddie trains. Others are on full-size trains that whiz you through forests (and even some snowy scenes if you're lucky).

They are all very popular. Tickets typically sell out completely or, at the very least, for the most sought after dates and departure times. So if you want to ride any of these trains, make your plans now.

One note: It appears that the N.C. Amtrak Santa Train is not planned for the second year in a row. If I get an update, I'll let you know.

Here are the Santa trains that are scheduled for this year:

    No problem! Definitely a good idea if this year is anything like last year!

    Thanks for the heads up! I just purchased tickets for the Pullen Park train. Finally got some before they sold out!
