See your children get swept up in the secrets and wonder of Christmas traditions at Texas State Railroad's Polar Express! This event has become an annual event for so many families throughout Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma. Start your Polar Express family tradition now.
Family and friends gather at the Palestine, TX train depot to celebrate the season aboard this treasured holiday journey, ready to create lifelong memories. While children are marveling at the lights, elves and the magical train waiting to whisk them away, every adult is smiling with satisfaction just watching their glee.
Enveloped by the motion picture soundtrack, passengers will relive the magic of the tale as they are whisked away on THE POLAR EXPRESS™. Once onboard, cocoa chefs serve hot chocolate and cookies as they recite the classic children’s book, The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. (Be sure to purchase a book along with your tickets so your child can read his/her own book along with the cocoa chefs.)
Santa’s elves are so excited to welcome every boy and girl, to 2 to 92, aboard the POLAR EXPRESS™ journey to the North Pole at Texas State Railroad. The magical portal transports us to the happiest most northern place on Earth, where Santa Claus, his reindeer and elves live. It is also where the elves make all the Christmas toys and help Santa keep track of all the children in the world to make sure they BELIEVE!
