Elf on the Engine! 

It’s one month until Christmas, and Santa’s elves are already working hard to prepare for the big
day. They visit the Northern Central Railway to enlist some helpers and collect letters for Santa.
But everything goes wrong when Finnegan Frost, the mischievous elf, shows up to cause
trouble. He interrupts the good elves’ merry holiday sing-along at the platform, using his
sing-a-wrong machine to ruin the Christmas cheer. Usually, they use their good-elf-o-matic to
keep his behavior in check, but now Finnegan has scattered pieces of the machine throughout
the coaches. Guests must search for and conceal the machine pieces on board. If Finnegan
catches someone with a piece in hand, they must give it back to him.
At the end of the ride, guests will bring all found pieces to the platform to hopefully repair the
good-elf-o-matic and save Christmas.

Take photos with the man in red and cast after the performance.
