Santa and Kids











Experience the magic and holiday cheer that you have read about and seen in the movie aboard a real life Polar Express to the North Pole!


Hot chocolate and cookies will be served to all of the passengers as the train takes the long jouney to the North Pole. During the trip, passengers and Polar Epress workers will gather together to read the story of the Polar Express. Upon our arrival to the North Pole, Santa will board the train and greet all of the passengers. Santa and his elves will present a silver bell to all of the passengers.


After Santa gets off of the train, the Polar Express will head back to Ely. During the trip back everyone is invited to sing Christmas carols. This magical trip is for everyone who believes in Christmas.
