Holiday Magic at Roaring Camp Railroads
Santa Cruz Holiday Lights Train
November 25 - 26 & December 3 - 4, 10 - 11, 17 - 23
Santa Claus is coming to town!
It never seems to come fast enough, but when it does, it brings the magic of the holidays with it. It’s Roaring Camp Railroad’s Holiday Lights Train! The magic of trains is the further you go, the closer you get and nothing brings you closer than a dazzling ride aboard vintage rail cars.
Caroling and spiced cider will put you in the mood for your arrival back at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Tickets also include a $6 MyBoardwalk Card for activities, games or rides.
Holiday Tree Walk
November 25 - 27 & December 3 - 4, 10 - 11
Get in the holiday spirit riding Roaring Camp’s Redwood Forest Steam Train to Bear Mountain. At the summit sip hot cider and stroll through a tree-lined walk of beautifully decorated holiday trees provided by Patchen California Christmas Tree Farm in Los Gatos.
Save $2 per train ticket and add to the festive spirit by bringing hope to families in need this holiday season. Bring a new and unwrapped toy to Roaring Camp’s depot to benefit the Santa Cruz County’s Toys for Tots campaign.
Create a new Chanukah tradition with Roaring Camp Railroads and Chabad by the Sea!
Gather at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk on the 5th night of Chanukah for the lighting of the menorah and then set off on an incredible train ride in Roaring Camp’s comfortable excursion cars adorned with thousands of shining lights and Chanukah decorations.
We’ll share in Chanukah traditions and ride the train through the streets of Santa Cruz listening to the Chanukah story, enjoying Chanukah treats and many more great activities. Your evening also includes your choice of mini golf, laser tag or arcade games.
