Beginning the day after Thanksgiving, join us for an evening train ride around our festively decorated, one-mile track in Griffith Park. Every night, until early January, our one-mile track at Griffith Park & Southern Railroad is transformed into a magical train ride of delightful and festive scenes with thousands of lights.

New this year! In addition to the lights and train ride, enjoy our new holiday gift kiosk, and 3 winter-themed, open-air photo booths – a perfect opportunity to create treasured memories.

November 25, 2022 — January 6, 2023 | $7 per person, (18 months and under are free).
Monday-Thursday: 5-8pm; Friday-Sunday: 5-9pm
In-person tickets are available for purchase NOW!
Online tickets for purchase are also available.

The ride is approximately 10 minutes around the mile-long track decorated with thousands of lights within Griffith Park.

New this year is a holiday pop-up gift kiosk (weekends only until Dec 9th) and four open air photo booths.

If rain is in the forecast, please check the venue's Facebook or Instagram pages for up-to-the-minute weather updates.

You are encouraged to purchase your tickets in advance. Ticket sales stop and the ticket window closes when maximum capacity is reached, or if the weather does not allow safe operation.

Tickets are $7 per person (18 months and younger are free)

Online tickets are $7 per person (18 months and younger are free) plus transaction and convenience fees. A limited number of tickets available for online purchase.


Guests of all abilities are welcome. However, because the train cars are antique and compact, the trains are unable to accommodate a wheelchair or walker directly in the car. A guest may use their chair or walker on the platform, but must be able to step up or be lifted 8 inches from the ground to clear the car entrance. Unfortunately, staff is not allowed to physically assist guests with these accommodations.
