Event Details

All aboard the 2022 Arctic Express at Wales West. Now departing November 25th through December 24th, 2022.

You can take home your own holiday family picture with Santa, and each child gets a special Toy. For a slight fee enjoy a Snowball Cannon, Café with meals and seasonal treats, Concession Stand with famous Kettle Korn and Cotton Candy, and a Gift Shop. Try our world-famous Kettle Corn or take home a Souvenir T-shirt!

**Wales West continues to use a reservation-based ticketing system. Each ticket will have a set DATE and TIME of departure. Please try to purchase the tickets you will need for your whole party (i.e. friends and family) at one time.

There will only be a limited number of “walk up” tickets available per day. These will be sold on a first come first serve basis.

There is a chance you will not be able to ride the Arctic Express if you do not purchase tickets ahead of time!!

Be sure to plan to arrive at the Railway at least 30 minutes before your train is scheduled to leave! The "Dame Ann" leaves the station on a sharp schedule! In the case you do miss your train, do not fret, we will work to get you a seat on the next available train.
