Get on board the holiday train and join in the fun! I have never done this but hear it is a huge blast and that the tickets sell quickly! Tickets for the sell-out, holiday-themed Santa’s COASTER Express will go on sale beginning Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 8 a.m. North County Transit District offers this popular holiday event for family fun and to raise money for two North County organizations that provide much-needed services to residents.
Families will have two opportunities to hop aboard the COASTER with trains departing Oceanside Transit Center on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 10 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.
The fun-filled, 90-minute experience will take passengers on a nonstop, roundtrip ride between Oceanside and Sorrento Valley. On-board elves will lead Christmas carols amidst festive decorations as families are greeted by Santa Claus and his friends. Santa’s helpers will be on hand to deliver commemorative tickets and goodie bags to all children riding the train.
Tickets are $6 per person with all proceeds donated to two noteworthy North County organizations – the Community Resource Center which serves at-risk women and children and the Military Mentoring Initiative aimed at easing the transition from military service to the workforce. Passengers should plan to arrive at Oceanside Transit Center 20 minutes prior to departure to ensure sufficient time to park. Onsite parking is free.
