Rediscover a beloved holiday tradition

Memories are born in wide-eyed wonder and winterland whimsy

Holiday Junction featuring the Duke Energy Holiday Trains brings out the wide-eyed wonder in kids of all ages. From the toddler ringing the bell of the riding train to the teen counting every LEGO brick to the grandparent watching model trains zip through a mini metropolis, our signature holiday experience brings families together in ageless joy.

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.
