ANTICIPATE YOUR JOURNEY
As you and your family take in the festive holiday decorations at THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride depot, you can almost hear the faint sound of sleigh bells in the distance. Visitors will be greeted at the main entrance and will receive their souvenir “Golden Tickets” before being directed to their color- coded performance area.

Before long, scenes from the story come to life as dancing chefs and waiters arrive to serve cookies* and hot chocolate to every patron. The wide-eyed children are invited to engage these winsome and inviting characters who are eager to hear from the youngsters about what makes the Christmas season special to them.

While the hot chocolate lingers in your mouth and warms your belly you will listen as the story of The Polar Express is performed in its entirety. A smile grows on your face as you watch your child become absorbed in the wonderment of the story like never before in anticipation of their own journey aboard THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride.

After the storytelling concludes, the train conductor invites you and the other passengers to assemble on the platform as your train arrives in a billow of steam. “All aboooooard!” Anticipation builds as you step onto the railcar to be escorted to your seat.

*Our Sugar Cookies are made in a facility that also processes tree nuts and contains wheat, eggs, and dairy. If you have any dietary restrictions, you are welcome to bring your own cookies to enjoy at this event, or contact us directly to receive an alternative nut free, gluten free, dairy free sweet treat.

EXPERIENCE THE FIRST GIFT OF CHRISTMAS
Once your adventure begins, you notice other key elements of the story — both inside and outside your railcar — springing to life. Watch and listen as Polar Express characters and scenes unfold before your eyes.

Upon arrival at the “North Pole,” keep your eyes peeled for Santa’s sleigh, a bag of toys and a giant Christmas tree. After the train slows to a stop, you find yourself delighting in the inspiring climax of the story as it takes place right outside your window. Children softly gasp as they watch Santa present “The First Gift of Christmas” to the young Hero to the cheers of elves.

After the train departs from the North Pole for the return voyage to the Depot, you soon notice that the adventure isn’t over. Santa has boarded your train car to present each ticketed rider with their very own “First Gift of Christmas” souvenir bell. Thinking back to the story, you are inclined to remind the children to check their pockets for holes.

As the train approaches the final stop, your participation in the story of The Polar Express comes to an end. However, you will have the opportunity to pose with Santa for a photo opportunity before you head out through our lovely Depot Gift Store. Our hope for your family is that your holiday season has been enriched and memories from your experience will endure for years to come.

Chances are, you will never read the story of The Polar Express the same again.
