Get a bird’s-eye view of the Duke Energy Holiday Trains, a staple of Cincinnati holidays since 1946. Watch from above or get a track-level view as hundreds of model trains zip along thousands of feet of track in the historic layout.

Take a snowy walk and build a snowman under the mesmerizing northern lights. Walk among a blizzard of bricks in a custom-built LEGO wonderland. Let Santa know what you’re hoping for this year.

Increased accessibility for little ones and expanded train layouts, including Thomas the Tank Engine, Carlisle & Finch, Lionel and a riding train, round out a visit.

Tower A

Tower A will also reopen this holiday season, delighting guests a unique view of the active Union Terminal railyard. The original control tower of the station, Tower A will be open from noon to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday during the holiday season.


Of course, no holiday is complete without a visit to see Santa. Santa makes his grand arrival on Friday, November 29. And though his reindeer are resting up for the big day, Santa will make an airborne arrival at Union Terminal.
