Looking for a fun & unique experience to give your family this Christmas?
Inspired by The Polar Express, a children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg (and also a hit movie featuring the voice of Tom Hanks), this holiday favorite will be coming to life for families wishing to take a magical train ride to the North Pole this holiday season!
The Polar Express tells the tale of a young boy who doubts the existence of Santa Claus and finds himself boarding a train to the North Pole. When he arrives, he meets Santa, who gives him a very special silver bell for Christmas.
Set to the sounds of the movie soundtrack, the train ride will include hot chocolate, cookies, caroling, and a reading of The Polar Express. Upon arrival at the “North Pole,” Santa will be there to greet passengers and give each child their own sleigh bell – just like in the movie! Families are even encouraged to wear their pajamas just as the characters in the story did.
If you’d like to experience The Polar Express for yourself, this magical train will be making stops at more than 50 locations across North America and the U.K. this holiday season.
Tickets for each location are sold by the individual host venues, so click on the location where you want to book your ride to see if tickets can be purchased yet. Last year, tickets ranged in price from $35-$120 and varied by venue and package.
