Polar Express Train Ride

Date: Nov 27 - Dec 26, 2020

All Aboard the Polar Express!
Don't Miss the Most Anticipated Event of the Year

See your children get swept up in the secrets and wonder of Christmas traditions at Texas State Railroad's Polar Express! This event has become an annual event for so many families throughout Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma. Start your Polar Express family tradition now.
The magical story comes to life the minute the train departs the Palestine Depot for the journey to the North Pole. (The adventure is even more fun when families and friends show up in their pajamas!). Enveloped by the motion picture soundtrack, passengers will relive the magic of the tale as they are whisked away on THE POLAR EXPRESS™.

Once onboard, chefs serve hot chocolate and cookies as they recite the classic children’s book, The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. At the North Pole, Santa and his elves greet passengers and then board the train. St. Nick gives everyone the first gift of Christmas – a silver sleigh bell (only believers can hear it ringing!).

On the ride back to THE POLAR EXPRESS™ train depot, chefs lead passengers in singing joyous Christmas carols.
