The principal attraction of the event in the Main House will be the huge railroad layout, featuring Lionel and similar scale trains traveling past magical creatures and beloved characters ending in a fantasy land with a real storybook ending.

The house will be decorated as an enchanted castle. Step inside and explore the rooms where you will find a magical fairy garden, featuring a beanstalk growing through the ceiling and a dragon in his lair.

Visitors can also stroll through the Lasdon Conservatory’s “Rainforest” exhibit, the “enchanted” hay maze, the “Down the Rabbit Hole” walk or the “Dinosaur Garden” and meet and greet a “live” dinosaur.
