You can take home your own holiday family picture with Santa, and each child gets a special Toy.

Try our world-famous Kettle Corn or take home a Souvenir T-shirt!
Covid 19 update: Wales West continues to use a reservation-based ticketing system. In an effort to maintain Social Distancing guidelines and maintain the safety of our guest, we are going to limit the number of passengers we ride per day.
In order to do that, we are selling Arctic Express tickets exclusively online. 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. As a suggestion, we ask that you purchase at least 4 tickets per order. Thank you for understanding.
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.
***The Arctic Express is a Rain or Shine Event. We will make every attempt to operate the day of the event. If, and only if, we are not able to operate, we will contact all guests for that day via email with options. ***
Open Fri's, Sat's, and Sun's 4 to 9 PM starting November 26th through December 24th. STARTING December 15th, open EVERY DAY.
