Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

Hi! Is the Groupon cost per person for the Christmas Train Ride at $18.00 applicable to both adults and kids? Do children 2 and up have a different price? Thank you!

Clariza B.  asked on  Dec 4, 2012

A:

These Groupon prices are for both kids & adults. If you bought normal retail children's tickets they cost $29 so you're saving $11, or 40%, off retail pricing on the children's tickets. It is still a terrific discount.

Q:

Where does this train go to and where can I pre-purchase the Christmas book? Thank You!

Tracie L.  asked on  Dec 4, 2012

A:

Hi Tracie, 1) The train departs from our station in Oakdale, CA. After a few miles we get out into the countryside. While the scenery is nice, the focus of these trips is more about all the activities going on in the train with a variety of entertainers. 2) You can pre-purchase the book. Contact the railroad's reservation office at 209-848-2100 or info@sierrarailroad.com. At that time, you can also tell them who the book is for and any messages you want to have written into the book. -Chris

Q:

How long is the training ride - 1hr, 2hr?

Ruben  asked on  Dec 5, 2012

A:

Hi Ruben, The train ride is 90 minutes. Having said that you're experience tends to be longer. You show up about 30 minutes before the departure time to check in, board the train, get settled in and sometimes have some pre-trip entertainment. After your 90-minute trip, a lot of people hang out for a while on our boarding platform taking pictures and visiting with characters and staff. So overall, I would guess that you'll spend 2.5+ hours with us. We have found that to be a good amount of time for children.

Q:

what they serve for dinner?

kevin k.  asked on  Dec 4, 2012

A:

Hi Kevin, There is no meal served with the Christmas Train trips. $18 for a train ride, hot cocoa, cookies, and lots of entertainment is a great price for only $18. There is no way that a meal could be included in that price. We do have other trips throughout the year with meals: dinners, murder mystery shows, brunches, lunches & more. They are not available through Groupon. - Chris
