The Polar Express

The magical story by Chris Van Allsburg 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 relive the tale and chefs serve hot chocolate and cookies. 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. On the ride back to the train depot, chefs lead passengers in singing joyous Christmas carols.
