Family Holiday Adventure - The Arctic Express

On County Road 9 in Silverhill, Alabama, tucked away behind a quaint little trailer park (yes, I said trailer park) there is a fun family adventure for all to experience year round.

Wales West RV Resort is not your typical RV place. Wales West is an eclectic combination of children's museum, birthday spot, wedding and party location, holiday adventures, and RV park. It truly is a sight to behold. Kids are brought to Wales West during the week for lessons on transportation and trains. The weekends are for birthday parties, weddings, and other parties. The RV Park is always available with tent space available during the summer months. Finally there are the holiday adventures that take place for Easter, Halloween, and Christmas.

The train station all decorated for Christmas.

Drop off your letter to Santa
This time of year (being Christmas time) take a train ride on the Arctic Express to the North Pole. Your travel time is made interesting by a show of lights all along the tracks, including decorations provided by RV visitors to the park. Once at the North Pole, Santa & his elves have a workshop where your child will have the chance to sit on Santa's lap, tell him what he/she wants for Christmas, and you can take all the pictures you need for your Christmas cards and crafts. Each child receives a wooden toy train from Santa. When they're done chatting with Santa, they take their toy into the workshop for coloring and decorations. The train comes back around filled with more passengers to see Santa and you board the coach to be taken back to the station.

 As you can see from all the pictures, we had a great time on our Arctic Express Adventure. Definitely a must add to our family holiday traditions and we are looking forward to returning during Easter!
