The Essex North Pole Express
Connecticut's favorite family tradition includes a musical performance of "Twas the Night Before Christmas", sing-a-longs, hot, 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 of 2 may 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.
