Polar Express Train Ride
Set to the sounds of the motion picture, passengers will relive the classic story as they are whisked away on THE POLAR EXPRESS™ for a magical trip to the North Pole. Once on board, the Conductor will work their way through the coach and punch your golden ticket as you’re served hot chocolate and a cookie by dancing chefs. Passengers will read along with the classic children’s book, The Polar Express, by Chris Van Allsburg. Once at the North Pole, Santa and his elves join the ride with caroling and entertainment. Each guest takes home a keepsake sleigh bell as a gift.
Families are encouraged to wear warm pajamas like the passengers in the book and film. Passengers may have to spend time on an unheated platform while entering and exiting the train, so warm winter attire is recommended. The train ride lasts approximately 70 minutes.
Tickets have sold out quickly in past years, so purchase online in advance. All trains depart from Westbrook Station at Kingston Plaza.
