43. Jump on the Xmas Train, choo choo!

Wanna be a kid again?
Head over to the Irvine Park Railroad this month (or any month since it's open all year round). The special schedule for the Christmas Train will be daily every day until 8 PM for Dec 11th-23rd. The ticket prices are $8 per person. For the this special event, the tickets are available for purchase online in advance with a one-time service fee of $7.50 or a limited number of same-day use tickets for the end of the day will be available at the railroad (check the schedule online to see if that day is sold out). I suggest going on a weekday after 5 PM for free parking, otherwise it's $3 during weekdays and $5 over the weekends.

Want FREE tickets for next time? Make sure to...
bring a camera to capture the Kodak Moment with the train and Santa. You can take a photo with Santa for $10 (or free with your own camera). When you get home, send an email with your favorite shot to the Railroad company and they will mail you 2 FREE regular tickets to come back for more fun (get email address online). In addition, you can print a 2-for-1 online coupon for regular admission during non-special events. The railroad closes at 9 PM during Spring/Summer and at 6 PM during Fall/Winter (check the schedule online for special events). Have fun!
