Destination Spotlight – All Aboard the Polar Express

A magical journey awaits your family in Lubbock this holiday season. Each year, the Polar Express Train Ride makes its way through the “Hub City” bringing joy and cheer to its passengers. This year is no different, and I’m excited to feature the attraction as this month’s Destination Spotlight!

At its new location, 103 N. Steck Ave. in Wolfforth, Texas, the Polar Express Train Ride produces a yuletide memory for families. Complete with pajamas, golden tickets and even a visit from Santa, this event is not one to miss during the holiday season.

Here’s what you can look forward to on the West Texas Polar Express Train Ride:

The story begins when the Conductor calls “All aboard!” and gleefully punches everyone’s ticket. Guests will enjoy the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack as the story reading begins and the book’s characters come to life. Dancing chefs will serve hot cocoa and cookies to all riders in a merry fashion as the doubting hobo wanders through the train.

The train stops where children will behold the magic of the North Pole from their warm train seats. With a jolly “Ho, ho, ho” Santa waves to everyone and climbs aboard, where he will greet each child and present them with the iconic silver sleigh bell. Listen carefully, only believers can hear its ringing! Christmas carols will be sung as elves dance along as the journey back to the station begins after a memorable ride that sets the tone for the whole holiday season.
