All Aboard for Holiday Fun
From mini models to the real deal, here are four terrific train experiences not to be missed.
Holiday Show at Krohn Conservatory
A lush and fantastical display awaits inside the glass walls of the Krohn Conservatory in Eden Park. Trains chug through a scenic wonderland of flowers and recreations of Cincinnati USA’s most iconic landmarks, as well as some imaginative structures dreamed up by the exhibit’s creators. November 12, 2016–January 8, 2017.
Behringer-Crawford Museum Holiday Train Display
With vintage Lionel and Plasticville trains, Thomas the Tank Engine and more than 30 moving, interactive displays carefully built at kids’ eye level, this magical tableau is tailor-made for children. November 12, 2016-January 8, 2017.
Christmas at Entertrainment Junction
This train attraction, with two miles of track, trains depicting every era of American railroading and the A-Maze-N Funhouse (which features a mirror maze and a hilarious tilt room), provides tons of fun all year long for little engineers. During the holidays, there’s a special Christmas cityscape display—and it even snows inside! November 12, 2016-January 3, 2016.
North Pole Express LM&amp;amp;M Railroad
During this festive hour-long roundtrip ride on a vintage train, kids can talk to Santa, listen to caroling elves, hear a reading of The Polar Express and sip hot chocolate. Pajamas encouraged! Train times vary throughout the season, starting on Saturday, November 26 and Sunday, November 27. Closer to Christmas, rides are also available on Thursdays and Fridays.
