It's back! A super festive holiday train ride is back in action in Hammonton, New Jersey.

It's the return of Magical Holiday Express at DiDonato's Family Fun Center, on the White Horse Pike in Hammonton, and it's fun for the whole family!

The holiday season offers a wonderful time of year to take advantage of spending time together and taking every opportunity to smile.

It seems like I was just telling you about this Christmas experience LAST year. The 2023 holiday season has certainly come up quickly!

Something to check out, especially with the kids, is DiDonato’s Magical Holiday Express, running November 13th through December 30th. It's a can't-miss outdoor experience. 

Holiday lovers (from 1 to 92!) can take an outdoor train ride through DiDonato's Christmas village, featuring millions of lights! Wow, that's gonna be some electric bill, huh?

Of course, no Christmas festivity would be complete without a visit from The Big Man in Red. Santa Claus and his elves will be on hand offering special gifts to the kiddos.

There will also be multiple dazzling Christmas tree displays, a Holiday Movie Tent where you can get a photo with everyone’s favorite snowman (Hmmm, do they mean Frosty or Olaf? Love 'em both!), story time with Mrs. Claus, and more magical surprises, according to DiDonato's.

Guests can also check out the pop-up Snack and Toy Cottage by Toy Market toy store, and there's even one complimentary bowling game and shoe rental per person!
