November 25, 2022 - December 24, 2022
The Magical Christmas Journey™ to the North Pole begins at the Verde Canyon Railroad depot in Clarkdale. The spirit of Christmas is aglow and visible from afar, beckoning all to experience the dream. Seasonal treats and libations may be purchased and enjoyed while perusing the depot grounds rich with festive lighting and holiday décor. Luminarias light the Southwestern-style depot roofline and giant ornaments adorn the outdoor pergolas dripping with icicle lights. Santa’s elves entertain and tell the tale of the beautiful Princess Noel and Flurry the Christmas Eagle while songs of the season fill the air.
The lead-up to riding the Verde Canyon Railroad on the Magical Christmas Journey™ to the North Pole is as much fun for the kids as the ride. When you purchase your train tickets, have your children join the Magical Journey VIP Kids’ Club™ for an additional $25.00 per child and get excited about their journey long before they actually meet Princess Noel and Flurry the Bald Eagle, at the depot, before starting their journey to the North Pole.
The holiday fun begins long before the train’s departure and it has a wonderful ending with Santa spending time with each child onboard the train.
