The Polar Express

2024 Holiday Season

THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride is returning to Southern California Railway Museum for the 2024 holiday season!

Trains Depart November 18th-December 30th, 2024

Polar Express Southern California Railway Museum

Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, passengers will relive the magic of the classic story as they are whisked away on THE POLAR EXPRESS™ for a magical one-hour trip to meet Santa. Once on board, your car hosts will work their way through the coach and punch your golden ticket before hot chocolate and a delicious cookie are served by dancing chefs. Passengers then read along with the classic children’s book, The Polar Express, by Chris Van Allsburg.

Santa and his helpers board the train to greet passengers and each guest is given the first gift of Christmas. During the trip, characters on each car immerse passengers in theatrical onboard entertainment – just like in the film! Each guest will take home a keepsake sleigh bell in addition to the wonderful memories made on this magical trip.
