The City of Noblesville is excited to welcome the Reindeer Ride Express to Forest Park this holiday season! Below is the news release from Nickel Plate Express that appeared in the Hamilton County Reporter. I took my family on the Reindeer Ride Express last year and had a great time - looking forward to boarding from Noblesville.

Reindeer Ride Express coming to Forest Park

Nickel Plate Express’ popular holiday event, the Reindeer Ride Express, will have a new home in Forest Park this winter.

One of last year’s top holiday attractions, Reindeer Ride Express took 7,000 passengers on a magical holiday train ride through northern Hamilton County. This year, Reindeer Ride passengers can look forward to an enhanced holiday experience when the train departs from Forest Park beginning Nov. 22.

“We are excited to welcome trains back to Forest Park this winter and provide families and guests another holiday memory to go along with the downtown decorations and storefronts, Lights Over Seminary, Christmas Cottage and Federal Hill Commons,” said Noblesville Parks Director Brandon Bennett. “Christmas is a special time in our city and the Reindeer Ride Express provides another fun opportunity to celebrate the season.”

The Reindeer Ride Express will run from Nov. 22 to Dec. 23. Passengers can expect an interactive, festive experience on board that includes Santa, hot chocolate and holiday cookies. Along the ride, families will see the 150-year-old Arcadia Depot lit up in a festive light display.

“Nickel Plate Express is excited to bring the Reindeer Ride Express to the Noblesville community,” said Nickel Plate Express Director Dagny Zupin. “Passengers can expect enhanced programming this year thanks in part to close community partnerships with Noblesville Parks Department, Noblesville Main Street and Nickel Plate Arts. We believe this is the start of an annual and mutually beneficial holiday partnership between Nickel Plate Express and the City of Noblesville.”

Tickets for the Reindeer Ride Express are available at Those interested in volunteering for the event should email Nickel Plate Express Director Dagny Zupin at
