This was a great train ride along the Payette River. You see the rafters and canoers. Sections of the train sold food and drinks. Unfortunately this attraction is closed.

Lots of fun for young children. Santa and his wife visit on the train as well as at his little village stop. Just the right amount of time there and back.

The Santa Express was really enjoyable! However, I felt that for the price of the 1st Class Ticket that either the cookies or the hot chocolate (or both) might have been complimentary. Other than that it was great fun for the little ones and just...More
