Santa Claus will manage to reach every child passenger along the way. He will chat away with them and present them with a small gift pack of sweets and fruits.
In Huvosvolgy children will be encouraged to join Santa's helpers in playful activities prior to the departure and after the arrival of Santa Claus Specials. They will have the chance to take part in mass dancing and singing.
Parents and grandparents are also very welcome to the event. Although Santa Claus is going to present his famous gift packs only to children, the ride itself is a unique experience to adults as well.
Santa Claus Specials are going to be operated in addition to the regular passenger services published in the winter timetable. The special services will be scheduled to call only at the two terminuses which means they can be boarded and disembarked only at Szechenyi-hegy and Huvosvolgy Stations.
Huvosvolgy Station: 8:20, 9:20, 10:30, 12:20, 13:45
Széchenyi-hegy Station: 9:15, 10:40, 12:10, 13:35, 15:10
Tickets are available in advance. For children under the age of fourteen it costs HUF 1200, for over-fourteen-year-olds HUF 1600. With regard to the nature of the event, tickets must be booked for children under the age of six, too.
