The North Conway Polar Express is not one of these Santa Trains, or a simple train ride! It’s a Magical 2-hour Journey, including :

  • A train ride to the North Pole in your PJs
  • Christmas Carols that we all sing together while aboard
  • Hot cocoa and candy to warm up your heart
  • AseaofElveswith their lanterns, awaiting you at the North Pole to deliver you to Santa
  • A read-aloud of the Caldecott Award winning book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg
  • Santa himself giving the first gift of Christmas to all the kids
  • Wonderful memories for years to come
