HERE IS A VERY SPECIAL CHANCE FOR YOU AND THE ENTIRE FAMILY TO EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC OF THE POLAR EXPRESS™, THE CLASSIC CHILDREN’S BOOK BY CHRIS VAN ALLSBURG.
Every winter the Grand Canyon Railway’s Polar Express comes to life on a journey from the nighttime wilderness of Williams, Arizona, to the enchanted beauty of “the North Pole”—where Santa Claus and his reindeer are waiting with a keepsake present for every good boy and girl. You’ll be smiling from ear to ear, as you watch children’s faces light up when the train arrives, and enjoy hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies while listening to this timeless story.
Make this a family holiday tradition, and call today to make your reservations (because space is limited to those who truly believe in the spirit of Christmas). The ride lasts a little over an hour, with the train leaving each night at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Book online for 2017 now, or call 1-888-848-3511.
WHAT TO EXPECT
You’ve reserved your tickets for The Polar Express. Your family is excited to go to the North Pole. So now what? The following information will help you plan your trip to maximize the magic.
Grand Canyon Railway’s The Polar Express is a magical, nighttime train adventure to the “North Pole.” During the holiday season The Polar Express departs the Williams Depot in Williams, AZ at select dates and times, and takes you and your family on a journey through the moonlit wilderness.
Much like in the book and movie, guests can expect a lively bunch of elves, chefs and other characters to provide constant entertainment. Photo-ops are plentiful as you are encouraged to sing, dance and act out old fashioned holiday songs, and read along to The Polar Express story by Chris Van Allsburg. Fill up on chocolate chip cookies and hot chocolate provided by Santa’s chefs just before you arrive at the North Pole.
Upon arrival to Santa’s Village, the train will fill with anticipation as Santa makes his way through the cars, visiting every boy, girl, mom and dad, leaving them with a special gift. Santa will visit each car as the train returns to the Williams Depot.
TOTAL ROUND-TRIP TIME: Approximately 90 minutes.
