Lunch With Santa
Who needs a ticket?
Anyone 2 and older will need a ticket. Those under 2 are required to sit on a lap and will not receive a sack lunch without buying a ticket.
Where are my tickets?
Your tickets will be ready for pickup at the depot in downtown Monticello (corner of Livingston and Independence ) beginning at 9 AM the day of your train. Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your departure time to ensure time to pick up tickets and board the train. Tickets will not be mailed out.
How long is the train ride?
The ride is about 60 minutes per trip.
Will my child get to meet Santa personally?
Santa will visit individually with each child on the train ride.
What is in the lunch?
Coach tickets receive lunch for a kid – peanut butter and jelly sandwich, chips, and drink. Everyone with a ticket receives a lunch. Cheese sandwiches are available on request for those with allergies. Dining Car tickets receive a turkey Subway sandwich, chips, cookie and a bottle of water for each rider, as well as a commemorative keepsake and one digital photo from a photographer.
There are no restrooms on the train – so plan to use the ones in the depot before the ride.
