Family Fun Loop: Christmas in July Toy Workshop

It’s Christmas in July on the train! Join one of Santa’s elves for a very special toy-making workshop. On the way home, a special guest (on his summer vacation!) will stop by to say hello to each child.

“Helper” ticket does not include craft supplies and is intended for adults that will assist children.

Tickets: $30.00 – $35.00

Duration: 2 hours
