The Napa Valley Wine Train is fun to ride at any time of the year, but it is particularly festive during the holiday season. The Santa Train takes guests on a musical and interactive journey to the North Pole to see Santa’s workshop.
Guests get “magical wristbands” that light up periodically to wear as they enjoy hot chocolate and a cookie. (Or some wine for the adults.) The train’s official website reads:
“Oh dear, Santa Claus left behind a few unfinished bears at the Napa Valley Wine Train in his haste to get back to his workshop at the North Pole. The Conductor and a few of Santa’s friends seek the help and participation of the children on board the train to recover the lost bears and return them to the North Pole. Santa’s workshop in Yountville will magically transform these unfinished bears for their journey back with the help of the children.”
Santa’s Workshop is located in Yountville, where guests will stop off before returning home.
