Train to Christmas Town

Do not spend the $40 for the Diamond seats, have to buy 2, so if you have 5 you are out of luck or leave a kid home. The ride is 70 minutes in total. The staff are very friendly... read more

We visited the train to Christmas town on 12/19. I purchased 1st class tickets, $35.00/adult & $30.00 children. We got our own 4 person table with plenty of room, take home mugs, Christmas coloring books, hot chocolate & cookies! The Elfs on the train were amazing with my son! They really got into the singing and dancing! Santa visits on... More

Why oh why did Santa have to pass out train whistles while we were still aboard!?!??!?!?!?!??!?!?!??!?!?! Other than the unpleasant shrill of young kids shreaking the whistles, the ride to ChristmasTown was a wonderful event!

It was perfect with plenty of room for all and were well taken care of from our wonderful Elfs, Bell and Snowflake. They tirelessly, sang, danced helped kids write... More

Do not spend the $40 for the Diamond seats, have to buy 2, so if you have 5 you are out of luck or leave a kid home. The ride is 70 minutes in total. The staff are very friendly and they have 3 animals that walk around. Santa was very good. Not worth the money.

We took our 1 year old on the scenic ride for his birthday. He loved it! He watched everything from the conductor to the scenery. We all had great fun! The trip was just long enough. We passed cranberry bogs, several nice villages, the canal, some kettle ponds, and much more. The announcer pointed out some really interesting facts about... More

Took my wife for her Birthday. Really didn't know what to expect. Completely surprised. Service was excellent. Food was great. Recommend going earlier in the season so you can enjoy the view. We took the last trip for the season, got dark to soon, still a nice ride though. Vintage train ride. No kids were on the train, very quiet.... More

The 3-hour dinner train was a relaxing and romantic ride past cranberry bogs, small towns' backyards, and the Great Marsh. (Rarely on the Cape is there a road or restaurant that gives you a view of the bay or ocean so we knew not to expect that.). The views from the train were typical Cape Cod and wonderful. The food...

On our scenic Railroad excursion for two hours 90% of it was looking at trees. The trees were growing extremely close to the track so that was about all you could see. I would not recommend this trip
