The little ones loved boarding the train (clad in Christmas pajamas), finding the perfect seat and watching the conductor come by and punch all of the tickets.
Once the engine blew and train pulled out of the station, the real excitement began! Eager little faces peered out the window in anticipation of seeing Santa Claus and his home, The North Pole!
After their adventure, the kids high-fived Mr. Conductor, waved goodbye to the choo choo train and we were on our way home. I'm sure there were visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads as they fell asleep on the car ride back home. :)
Interested in this magical experience? Read below to see how you can treat your family to this once in a lifetime adventure! :)
Before arriving at the North Pole, the iconic book, The Polar Express is read as your Chef turns the pages to share the beautiful illustrations in the original book. With the station far away, THE POLAR EXPRESS magically arrives at the outskirts of Santa’s North Pole village, where Santa Claus himself and his elves joyously welcome the train! As you stay comfortably settled and warm in your seat, Santa and his helper elf board the train! During the return trip, Santa will greet each child with his signature holiday spirit and the first gift of Christmas: a bell cut from his sleigh. It is said that only children and those who still believe can actually hear the bell ring. Join in the singing as your Chef or Conductor lead Christmas caroling on the 30-minute return trip.
For those wanting the magic to last or to do a little Christmas shopping, visit our gift shop in the station for special POLAR EXPRESS gifts and merchandise. Oh, one last thing, children are encouraged to wear their PJ’s; adults who still believe have been known to wear them, too! So, are you coming? All Aboard!
