Winter wonderland emerges as families experience North Pole Express at Thunder Junction
Thunder Junction All Abilities Park is transformed into a winter wonderland for patrons of all ages during the North Pole Express at Thunder Junction, set for Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays in December.
The park is filled with the holiday spirit as guests view the lights, ride the train, enjoy hot chocolate and cookies, and visit with Santa.
“It is such a great experience to share in the holiday spirit,” said Recreation Supervisor Nikelle Pledger.
“It is also a great opportunity to play at the park and enjoy some warm goodies.
Don’t wait too long to get your tickets — last year all but one night sold out.”
The opening weekend of North Pole Express was a success as every ticket was sold.
As of early Tuesday, there are tickets available for five of the six dates remaining: Dec. 13, 14, 16, 21, 23 (Dec. 20 is sold out).
Each event goes from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and the park will be closed to all other patrons.
The cost to attend is $7. Tickets can be purchased at the City Commons Building at 220 North 200 East.
Thunder Junction is located inside Tonaquint Park at 1851 S. Dixie Drive.
