My family loves the movie, The Polar Express. What could be better than watching the movie? How about actually taking a ride on the train?
All Aboard! THE POLAR EXPRESS will come to life this holiday season when the Texas State Railroad makes trips bound for the “North Pole!” Come early and climb aboard with your family to take a ride in our festively-decorated vintage train cars. For entertainment, dancing chefs will deliver hot chocolate and a cookie to each guest while music from The Polar Express movie plays as the train treks toward the North Pole. Once aboard, be sure to have your tickets handy, because your conductor will be by to punch each child’s ticket.
Before arriving at the North Pole, the iconic book, The Polar Express, complete with beautiful illustrations, is read to all participants. With the station far away, THE POLAR EXPRESS magically arrives at the outskirts of Santa’s North Pole village. Santa Claus his elves will joyously welcome the train! As you stay comfortably settled and warm in your seat, Santa and his helper elf will 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 back to the station.
For those who want to do a little Christmas shopping, visit the 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 going? All Aboard!
