Since 2016, DiDonato’s Family Fun Center has been hosting its annual Rolling Railway Magical Express ride. Located in Hammonton New Jersey, the Magical Holiday Express will be open for select dates throughout November and December.

DiDonato’s offers a variety of amusing Christmas-themed attractions guaranteed to get your family in the holiday spirit. Their main feature is a train ride through millions of Christmas Lights. Each family gets placed together into a passenger car and the conductor takes it from there, directing the carts through the track of lights. The decorations perfectly mimic the feeling of an old-timey Christmas town at the peak of the season.

Another exciting option to partake in is the meet and greets with Santa and his elves and a photo op to capture the memory. Santa is known to hand out gifts to his visitors to give a sneak peek of his holiday magic to come.

There is also a walkable tour through the Holiday Village if you prefer to take your time looking through all of the lights.

A new addition this year is DiDonato’s brand-new Pin Deck for quick service to the public. The deck will serve treats like boozy milkshakes and seasonal sundaes for parents to get in on the fun. Other goodies include pizza by the slice, hot dogs, and french fries.

To finish off the night, they will be opening up their Holiday Movie Tent to showcase a cozy, Christmas flick perfect for snuggling up with the kids. Also, on your way out make sure to stop by the toy market to look for any last-minute goodies.

Tickets are $19.95 per person, all included, and Saturday pricing bumps up to $24.95 for the three weekends prior to Christmas. Tickets purchased at the door, as opposed to online, will be $21.95 if they are not sold out and on Saturday all tickets have to be purchased online for entry.

The hours are 4:45p.m-8p.m from Sunday through Thursday and pushes back 45 minutes later to 8:45p.m on Friday and Saturday.

There are a number of possibilities to participate in this year at DiDonato’s and tickets sell out quickly – so purchase tickets here to get a chance to check it out.

What better way to warm up to the approaching Christmas season than to check out this joyful attraction?
