The Griffith Park Train Rides
" With three small children, Travel Town is a blessing. Free parking and admission. Lots of things to see and do. The train ride is just perfect for the little ones and the big locomotives let the older one explore and make believe. We love it!"
-- Angie P.

"My sons love the trains. We are here with them almost every weekend." -- Jose S.

Open every day of the year, except for Christmas Day, the Griffith Park Train Rides are one of Los Angeles's most fun and affordable family attractions. Click here for hours and directions.

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 returns on November 23, 2018 and continues nightly until December 30, except for December 24 and 25. Our ride is proving to be very popular so expect long waits and possible sell-outs on weekends and the last week before Christmas. We must limite our ticket sales each night in order to accomodate the demand. Please buy your tickets early.

As a general rule tickets are available the day of the ride if purchased as soon as the ticket booth opens. But we cannot guarantee that and cannot know in advance what the availability will be.  To be sure that you can ride the day you wish we advise arriving in the late afternoon before 4 pm and buying tickets then. Especially on weekends and the last week before Christmas. Advance tickets go on sale on November 1 during normal business hours at our ticket office at 4400 Crystal Springs Drive, Los Angeles 90027
