Meet Santa and Ride the Spicer Express at Spicer Orchards

Ride the Spicer Express!

Spicer Orchards is currently planning to offer a “socially distanced” Santa for the 2020 season.

What is “socially distanced” Santa?

It is NOT a Santa with a Mask.  Santa will be working in his sleigh workshop on “toys” for Christmas and his hands are stuck in the toy, Ohh Noo!!  So children will speak to Santa across his workbench.  Pictures will be available with Santa in the background.

Visit Santa at his Sleigh Workshop

Day Time: $12 per person

Night Time 6:00pm & after: $15 per person

**Train or Wagon Ride**

Private Visit with Santa

Bonfire at Santa’s Cabin

Making Reindeer Food with Elves

Please make a reservation by calling or stopping in the market. Trains book up fast and walk-ins are not guaranteed. Trains have a maximum capacity to ensure families/groups have adequate time in their private visit with Santa.

​Santa reservations start the Friday after Thanksgiving. The train to see Santa runs every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until Christmas. Please call for available time slots.

It’s an Experience!

Spicer Orchards strives to provide a Magical Moment for you and your family. They provide the Santa “experience” with the hope of continuing the spirit and magic of Christmas.  They hope you get the perfect family picture for your Christmas card, but that is not the purpose; The purpose is to experience the magic.  You are welcome to take your own pictures and Mrs. Claus will be happy to snap a photo of the group, but they will not spend extra time positioning everyone, checking to make sure the photo is perfect, or be held accountable for photo mishaps. The cabin and woods offer a cool backdrop to some memorable photos!

Photography Policy

Mrs. Claus or an elf may help you with family photos.
