North Pole Express

Board our locomotive-powered sleigh…for a magical nighttime journey to the North Pole. Every coach becomes a stage for a LIVE, musical performance of The Night Before Christmas. Celebrate the spirit of the season with Santa and Mrs. Claus, sing-a-longs, hot chocolate and sugar cookies.

Each child will receive a small gift from Santa. Children are invited to wear their favorite PAJAMAS. Make sure those PJs are warm and cozy…it’s cold up at the North Pole!

Ride length is approximately 90 minutes

NPE Notes:

  1. Coach seats are padded bottom and backed bench style, with multiple passengers per bench. A Coach ticket entitles you to a seat on the bench; not the entire bench seat.
  2. All Coach tickets are assigned to specific train cars after you have completed your purchase. To ensure all of your party is assigned the same train car, you must purchase all tickets on one order. Due to the high volume of tickets, these assignments cannot be changed.
  3. All sales are FINAL . . . please ensure your availability and that of your entire group prior to purchasing tickets. We encourage you to have multiple dates and times ready to order in case your first choice is not available. NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES
  4. Trains operate during all weather conditions, but we reserve the right to postpone or cancel any train ride in extreme conditions. If the train operates, NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES will be honored for those that do not attend their scheduled excursion. If we must postpone a departure (Nov 10 – Dec 18) due to extreme conditions, your ticket will be good at the same time the following Monday. If we must postpone a departure Dec 20 – Dec 29, your ticket will be good at the same time on Dec 30.
  5. Tickets will be mailed to the address provided on your order beginning Nov 1, 2016. Please make sure to open your envelope when received to check your tickets and to read important updated event information that will be included.
