Connecticut's favorite family tradition includes a musical performance of Twas the Night Before Christmas, sing-a-longs, hot chocolate, sugar cookies, and an appearance by Santa and Mrs. Claus. Each child receives a small gift from Santa. Children are invited to wear their favorite pajamas! This event always sells out quickly so buy your tickets early.

Children under age 1 ride free without a ticket but may not occupy a seat. Car carriers and strollers are not permitted on the trains.

The ride duration is 1.5 hours. Rides depart multiple times per day. Children under the age of 1 sitting on a parent’s lap do not require a ticket.

Editor's note: Tickets to this perennially popular Polar Express train go on sale annually in September and are sold out. Mark your calendars to get ahead on next year's trip!
