Santa Express tickets on sale now!

  • Join us for what has become a tradition for families across the Midwest. Take a ride on the Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad’s Santa Express, a journey that will take you from Boone, to the North Pole, and return. Santa will pass through the train, greeting children, and passing out a special gift.
