Santa Express

Join Kidz Kingdom and the DuPage County Historical Museum for a Santa Express train ride departing from the downtown Wheaton Metra Station.

Celebrate the holiday season with a train ride with Santa that includes a story, treats and a holiday sing-a-long. Each paid child receives a small gift from Santa and a goody bag.
General admission sales begin at 8A on Tuesday, October 1.
Tickets are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. All tickets are nonrefundable, but are transferable if you notify Museum Manager Michelle Podkowa at mpodkowa@wheatonparks.org.

Pricing: $20/person

All participants will need to be listed on the registration and ages must be provided.

All riders ages 12 months and older must have a paid ticket. Unpaid infants must sit on a paid adult’s lap and do not receive a goody bag. We ask that strollers do not come aboard the train.
