A tradition for us every Christmas is to ride a Santa Train, this year we rode the Mt Rainier Scenic Railroad Santa Express and it was so much fun! I love Christmas time, family and traditions! Making memories.
It was a short 1 hour drive to Elbe from Tacoma. We arrived 15 mintues before take off and got to hop right on the train so we weren’t cold at all.
We sat towards the front of the train where the tables were located, the heaters were on so we were toasty warm. We even had to take our jackets off because we were too hot. Just don’t forget to bring your winter gear because afterall it is the mountains :)
They serve free cookies and hot cocoa and have more available for purchase on the concession car(where Santa is located). The prices aren’t bad and the butter on the popcorn is the best I’ve ever had. Cash only. You can bring your own food/drinks (just no glass containers).
I didn’t get any pictures of Mason with Santa, he kept telling me “no pictures mom” :( But they had it cutely decorated and had kids sign their name with the “magic” pen, it was cute.
Okay I’ll stop talking and let you see pictures of our fun. And hurry there is only two weekends left to catch the Santa Express Train!!
Go purchase tickets here.
Don’t forget your camera and to have fun :)
My family and I were given tickets to ride the train to review. However all opinions expressed here are my own.
