All Aboard! Next Stop: The North Pole!
November – January
Book your 2014 Polar Express ride today! Tickets go fast so book today!
Inspired by the award winning book by Chris Van Allsburg, and the run-away hit movie starring Tom Hanks, this classic holiday favorite comes to life as you and your family takes a magical round trip journey to the North Pole aboard the historic Durango and Silverton Railroad.
This holiday ride is fun for the entire family and kids are encouraged to wear their pajamas, bringing the magic of the Polar Express™ story to life. “All Aboard” says the conductor, as your trip to the North Pole departs. As the train leaves the depot, concessionaires (dressed in chef’s coats and hats) will begin serving hot chocolate and cookies. After everyone has been served, the Polar Express will be read over the PA system and a helper in each car walks up and down the aisle with the book to turn the pages and show everyone the pictures.
The story finishes just as you arrive at the North Pole, the lights will dim, and an announcement is made to start watching for Santa. The North Pole will be lit with thousands of Christmas lights and Santa and his helpers will be there waving at the Polar Express™ as it pulls in. Santa will greet the children and, for those who believe, a special gift for each child, just like in the story. While Santa is moving through the cars, a song leader in each car will pass out song books and leads the group in Christmas Carols and everyone will sing together on the return trip.
This one-of-a-kind, unforgettable trip will give your family memories to share together for years to come.
