A Journey Into Wonder


Catch a ride on the Polar Express with this magical tour! This 20 minute tour immerses you in the story of the Polar Express with visits from your favorite characters.

Join the Conductor for a magical journey to a life-size steam engine! Share in the adventure as the Conductor recounts the story of the boy who received the first gift of Christmas… a bell from Santa’s sleigh! On board our Polar Express Tour, you will see tap-dancing hot chocolate servers, snowy landscapes, and learn what it truly means to believe. Rekindle the wonder of the beloved story book, along with the belief in the magic of Christmas. All passengers will receive a mini-cup of hot chocolate.

Please dress for the weather! This performance takes place on an open-air tram. You are welcome to bring blankets on chilly nights to stay warm. Please note that this experience will be different than in years past. We have re-staged our musical performances to take place outside of the tram so that all guests will be able to have a perfect view, regardless of where they sit. We don't want anyone to miss a thing!

Safety of our guests and staff is our priority! This tour will take place on an open-air tram and follow social distancing practices. Capacity on this tour will be limited and guests over the age of 2 will be required to wear masks while onboard.

Polar Pajama Party

Come dressed in pajamas if you like! We'll be awarding a special prize to the rider with the most festive pajamas on each trip.
