The Griffith Park Train Rides
The station
"With three small children, Travel Town is a blessing. Free parking and admission; lots of things to see and do. The small train ride is perfect for the younger ones and the big locomotives and cars let the older ones explore and make believe." -- Angie P.

"We bring our grandchildren here whenever they are in town. They always want to ride the ponies and the little train before we do anything else." -- Peggy G.

At Griffith Park and Southern Railroad you travel over one mile of track, across a bridge, through a forest and the Old Western Town. You can also try our classic simulator ride Kid Coaster - fun for all ages.

At Travel Town Railroad, you travel around the Travel Town Museum two times. After riding our miniature train, you can explore dozens of old time railroad locomotives and cars.

Our Holiday Lights Train Ride continues until December 30 nightly, except December 24 and 25. Our 2017 ride is proving to be very popular so expect long waits and possible sell-outs on weekends and the last week before Christmas.
