Santa Express Train at Royal Gorge

All aboard the Santa Express Train for a magical journey to the "North Pole" in Colorado's very own Royal Gorge! The train runs Nov. 18 - Dec. 24, so visit to learn more and book your tickets to ride. In the meantime, watch this - it will definitely get you in the holiday spirit!!


The Santa Express Train is Colorado's favorite Christmas train. This 1.5-hour ride through Colorado's Royal Gorge to the North Pole is chock-full of holiday cheer, where children wear their pajamas, listen to Christmas stories, sing Christmas carols and enjoy homemade cookies and cocoa. Guests of all ages enjoy views of the Royal Gorge on the way to the North Pole, which is decorated like a true Christmas town, including thousands of holiday lights. Once Santa boards the train at the North Pole, children await their turn to share their holiday wish list and receive their very special Santa Express Train gift. 

It runs through the Royal Gorge this Nov. 18 through Dec. 24 up to three times per day. Skip the fast food on the way and eat local on the train instead for lunch or dinner. Plus, there's a fully stocked bar featuring local microbrews, libations and wine available on any class of service.

  1. I'm tempted to do this but the Royal Gorge is so far away that I don't think we'll make it. I still have to take Madison back to the North Pole up our way once again since we didn't get to be there very long the last time we went.
