Ripley’s Nights Of Lights Train has become a favorite family tradition… even our 17 year old asked us to schedule it on a night he could come!
I’m sure you already know that Ripley’s knows how to make a memory inside the crazy museum. Well, they’ve put all their experience into making #NightsOfLights Trains fun for all ages. Instead of the line feeling interminably long, families pass the time by watching a fire dancer, taking photos with Santa, roasting marshmallows and playing in the bubble snow! Ripley’s Red Train is full of surprises and is hands-down the best Nights of Lights tour experience for a family with little ones in St. Augustine!
There are plenty of distractions as you wait. You may recognize this fella below… A friendly elf is on hand to help out Santa & Mrs. Claus! He walks around and helps cheer up kiddos as you wait in line.
Speaking of passing the time (because little kids waiting in lines is never magical), snow falls at Ripley’s!! The bubble snow won’t leave kids damp but will leave them giggling. There’s a Christmas movie playing on the big screen inside (safe from cool nights!) and a marshmallow roasting station. And then there are the hats. CRAZY hats. Ripley’s is going for a WORLD RECORD of having the largest online album of photos with hats so they have this fun photo station set up for everyone to join in!
And we can’t leave out our favorite balloon man, Sparky the Clown. He’s really good and so very friendly!!
After the train ride around the city, where you’ll sing a few songs and yell MERRY CHRISTMAS! to every pedestrian you pass, you can stop by the face-painting tent to make the magic last a little bit longer.
Making memories is always a great use of time… have fun making your St. Augustine Christmas memories with Ripley’s this year!
