About the Event: Join us for an enchanting journey to the North Pole! The fun begins at the Ocean Gateway Visitor Center, which serves as our train depot for this event. Holiday decorations inside the train add to the festive atmosphere as guest on board meet the Conductor, enjoy hot chocolate and cookies served by our hot chocolate chefs, and listen to a reading of the enchanting story as they journey to the “North Pole.” Santa will greet children aboard the train while passengers sing along to carols as they journey back to the train station!
