Hop on board the Paradise & Pacific Railroad and experience a winter wonderland of holiday lights and displays. No trip to the park is complete without a spin on the historic Charros Carousel or a cup of hot cocoa from Hartley’s General Store.

Santa will also be at the park to visit and take photos with on the following nights:

Nov. 25-27

Dec. 2-4

Dec. 9-11

Dec. 16-23

* Santa’s line will close nightly at 7:15 & 9:15 p.m.

  • The event will feature limited capacity  per one hour and a half time blocks at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. nightly

The park will only be accessible to those who have purchased tickets during a specific time block. Visitors will have an opportunity to ride the train and carousel as many times as they’d like during their time slot. With limited ticket sales nightly, the lines will be much shorter and will allow for multiple train or carousel rides. Announcements will be made when the hour and a half is up and it is time to leave the event area.
