a holiday train ride as a gift for the whole family! On weekends, adults ride all day Saturday or Sunday for $10 and kids 17 and under ride free.

To honor this season of fun and caring, this year we’re sharing awareness of services with Olive Crest, a non-profit that provides crucial services for the development of children and families.

Please be aware that weekend service is available south to San Clemente but is temporarily unavailable to Oceanside due to track stabilization.
