Our 2021 North Pole Express Tickets Are Sold Out
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, festive sing-a-longs, 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
