This is one of those Good News/Not-So-Good News stories.

Let's start with the good news:

Holidog has his own train coming to Holidog’s FunTown!

We hope you’ll enjoy making memories with your family as Holidog Express takes you through Mother Goose Land, starting in early June.

This is the photo of what the train will look like.

So what's going on with the Freedom Train?

Since our very first season as Santa Claus Land, the Freedom Train has provided countless rides for children of all ages. It started out as the Santa Claus Land Railroad and became the Mother Goose Land Train when the nursery rhyme statues were added in the 1950s.

When Santa Claus Land was re-named Holiday World in 1984, the train also received a new name. To match the theme in its new location – the 4th of July section – it became the Freedom Train.

During off-season maintenance this past year, it was discovered that the Freedom Train needed restoration work. When that is completed, it will be on display in the park.

We realize quite a few families enjoy the tradition of riding the Freedom Train together each year, and want to thank you in advance for your understanding.

Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy riding Holidog Express this season!

    We have enjoyed riding the freedom train, but I’m sure the new train will be just as fun!

    How very kind of you to post that, Allen. This is such a fun place to work – we like to share the behind-the-scenes stories, even the ones that are sometimes a bit difficult to tell.
