Sacramento hosts one of its most popular holiday experiences that is not to be missed. Guests begin with entertainment by Polar Express characters, then board the train to the North Pole with hot cocoa and sweet treats.

On arrival, the magical elf and Santa himself board the train with a special gift for all passengers. 

The train ride consists of 7 separate cars pulled by vintage locomotives from the California State Railroad Museum's collection including coach, gondola, or first class.

The train departs at various times throughout the day. Children under 2 who can sit in an adult's lap do not need a ticket.
