The Polar Express Train Ride
The Polar Express™ returns to the West Texas & Lubbock Railway, recreated to match all the sights and sounds of the beloved story. Picture the excitement of children dressed in pajamas with golden tickets clutched in their hands as they board the train and prepare to embark on their journey to the North Pole.
The story begins when the conductor calls “all aboard” and punches children’s golden tickets. Little faces will peer out the train’s windows as we pull out of the station on our way to the North Pole. Each guest will hear 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 (only believers can hear its ringing). Christmas carols will be sung as we return back to the station after a memorable ride that sets the tone for the whole holiday season. Join us in this annual event sure to become one of your family’s treasured traditions.
