The Polar Express™ Train Ride

The Polar Express™ Train Ride (1)
When: Sunday, Nov 19, 2017 - 4:30 PM
Phone: 1-800-819-2291

Live the magic of the classic Polar Express™ Train Ride story with the Adirondack Scenic Railroad. This trip is approximately 2 hours round trip. Depart from Utica’s Union Station and travel north while being served hot chocolate and cookies, interacting with Hot Chocolate Chefs, and listening to Liam Neeson’s reading of The POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride, by Chris van Allsburg. When you arrive at our North Pole (Holland Patent, NY), Santa will board the train, spending time with each and every family during the return trip and giving children the first present of Christmas (a silver bell, just like in the book or movie)!

Children (and parents!) are encouraged to come in pajamas. Don’t forget your camera- you’ll want to capture the memories of your time with Santa! Join the many families who come back to see us every year!
