Everything COTM does is done in excellence and the Christmas Train is no exception. It's such a wonderful way to celebrate the Christmas season with family or friends. Their western town is adorable, the Santa Claus house is outstanding, the boutique shops are great, the little cafes are good...it's just very nicely executed, the whole thing. It's definitely worth the drive.

I had tried to get tickets for 3 years in a row and finally made it. We loved the entire experience and will try to come back again. We loved it. Just wish we had a little more time at the park and not as hard of a time getting tickets.

The location and atmosphere here are great. The train ride is good, although it will be cramped in an effort to accommodate as many riders as quickly as possible. There are plenty of places to eat and snack and all are affordable. The buildings and old west town atmosphere are amazing.

To address a previous comment regarding being treated second class, I can't attest that I ever saw that happen this year. However there is a handicapped accessible entry for the train (unsure of other rides) that allows them to wait in a shorter line. I'm sure that they're also allowed to have their family and friends in line with them so they can experience it together. It wouldn't surprise me though if people took advantage of that as the staff certainly aren't going to question someone on whether they are actually handicapped or not.

If you've never been to this you must make an effort to buy tickets and attend. It's amazing. The tickets are hard to come by though and they sell out very fast so you'll have to do a little research and possibly stay up late in order to get them.

This was our first visit to the area. We tried to get tickets last year but they sold out too fast! It was definitely worth the wait and we will try to go back next year. They transform the town into what looks like a real Christmas village. The lights and buildings are breathtaking. We really enjoyed the train ride and loved that our children could actually see something that teaches of the true meaning of Christmas. It is crowded, yes, but definitely not so crowded that I would not go back. The food is mediocre, but we really were not coming here for a 5 star meal. This is the cleanest facility i have ever been too. Even the bathrooms were spotless. We really enjoyed our visit and plan on going again next year.

The cost is in great reflection of this attraction. They have taken a once old western town kids camp and remodeled it into a Hollywood style western town. It has lost its rustic scenery that the original Christmas Train and town had. The train was ok but not as good as it once was. Now they cram as many folks as possible on it and you really can't see much. We used to be able to go into the chapel for pics, the puppet show was cute, liked all the carolers in the town and the lights. I understand all the help were volunteers, they did a wonderful job at making us feel welcomed and they all dressed for the occasion. By keeping the price low it will continue to be an attraction that is worth at least a one time visit, I look forward to taking my grandchildren there someday. If you are worried about door dings on your car then drive an older one, the parking spaces are so small its hard to get out of the car.
