|Boulder City Santa Train Advanced Sales|
October 5, 2010
Boulder City, Nevada. Due to last year’s incredible demand, the Nevada State Railroad Museum, Boulder City will once again sell advanced tickets to its annual Santa Train event. Pre-sale tickets are on sale now through December 3 while supplies last. The Santa Train will run December 4 and 5 as well as December 11 and 12 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day.
“By purchasing tickets in advance riders can choose both the day and time they want to ride the Santa Train,” said Peg Franchetti of the railroad museum. “Advanced ticket holders can avoid waiting in lines to purchase tickets and will be able to ride at the time of their choosing.”
Start the holidays off on the right track by boarding the Santa Train, a holiday treat for the entire family, featuring a half-hour ride down the historic tracks of the Boulder Branch Line aboard the Nevada Southern Railway, plus a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. The event features a toy train exhibit, food and cocoa for sale, Santa’s North Pole Mailbox, Santa’s Sleigh for a great spot to take pictures plus candy canes for all the children.
Tickets for the Santa Train are $4 per seat, payable by cash or check only. They can be purchased in advance Tuesday through Friday at the Museum Office at 600 Yucca Street or on Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm at the Ticket Office at 601 Yucca Street. For more information call 702-486-5006 or visit museums.nevadaculture.org.
“We will still be selling tickets to the Santa Train on the event dates so those who don’t buy advanced tickets can still ride,” said Franchetti. “Half of the tickets available are being offered for advanced sales and half will be sold during the event on a first come first served basis.”
Santa Train rides depart at the top of each hour from the Nevada State Railroad Museum Depot located at the intersection of Nevada Highway and Yucca Street in Boulder City. Due to the popularity of the event, visitors are encouraged to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure.
The Santa Train has been an annual holiday event at the museum and would not be possible if not for the invaluable assistance from the Nevada State Railroad Museums volunteers. The event is also sponsored in part by Rustic Living and the Railroad Pass Hotel and Casino.
