The Polar Express™ is returning to the Saratoga & North Creek Railway this holiday season, and seats are already filling up fast! Book your family trip now and get ready for the classic Christmas story to come alive during train rides on select dates in November and December.
Based on both the 1985 children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg and the 2004 feature film starring Tom Hanks, Saratoga & North Creek Railway’s The Polar Express™ train ride takes families on a magical ride to the North Pole.
While on board The Polar Express™, passengers will be whisked away into a storybook world as music from the motion picture soundtrack plays in the background. On the way from the Saratoga Springs train station to the North Pole, dancing chefs will serve hot chocolate & cookies and read from the classic book.
When The Polar Express™ arrives in the North Pole, Santa and his helpers will greet passengers, and all of the children will be given their own personal silver sleigh bell. The holiday merriment will continue on the journey back to Saratoga Springs with Christmas carols.
This extremely popular train ride always fills up, and booking is currently underway. Each one-hour round trip journey leaves the station in Saratoga Springs at either 5:30PM or 7:30PM on select dates in November and December.
The Polar Express™ will run from November 18th-20th, November 25th-26th, December 2nd-4th, December 7th-11th, and December 13th-23rd. Depending on the date and the class of service you choose, ticket prices can range from $40-$80.
