"A Magical Christmas Adventure in July!"

Embark on a whimsical journey this summer with our unique Christmas in July Train Excursion. During this unforgettable adventure, the magic of Christmas meets the warmth of summer. This unique journey offers an extraordinary onboard experience that brings the joy of the holiday season to life under the summer sun.

On-Board Experience:

Step aboard and be greeted by none other than Santa and Mrs. Claus, donning their summer-themed outfits for a stroll through the train, reminiscent of traditional Christmas trains. Engage in delightful conversations as they inquire about how the children have been faring this year and their wishes for Christmas, and gently remind everyone to write their Christmas lists early.

In a heartwarming gesture, Mrs. Claus will present families with a unique ornament adorned with New Hope’s logo, ensuring a memento of this magical journey (one per family). Adding to the festive atmosphere, our car host will distribute scrumptious cookies and a refreshing summer drink alongside candy canes, ensuring a sweet treat for everyone on board.

To elevate your experience, our onboard bartender will roam the train, offering drinks for those wishing to indulge in holiday cheer. Our onboard staff is dedicated to making your excursion delightful.

Immerse yourself in the festive spirit with musicians serenading the train with a mix of Christmas-themed and summer songs, creating a perfect soundtrack for your journey.
