Polar Express Ticket Registration
Polar Express at the Historic RailPark is a wonderful event! Children arrive at the Depot in their pajamas with adults in tow and tickets in hand. They enter the North Pole gate and excitedly await their turn. While waiting for boarding time, cookies and hot cocoa keeps everyone warm.
Our conductor will punch tickets and the passengers are led to the Dining Car. When all are seated, the story begins and is read each night by a special storyteller.
After the story, the passengers on the magic train are ready to disembark and oh my……. !!! Santa appears to give each child a magic bell to remind them of their journey! What a special memory for children and adults alike!
Readings occur nightly. Tickets are free but you must get your tickets in advance. Tickets are required for each adult and child. There is a limit of 6 tickets per reservation.
