We've done many train rides on this train over the years, but this was our second time doing The Polar Express. My kids are older now, but it's still such a fun evening. If possible, my suggestion is to do the earlier ride since parking...More

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this train ride. It followed along with the movie with the songs, hot chocolate, singing waiters, elves, Santa and even giving a silver bell to every one. The trip is one hour and 40 minutes but the time goes by so...More

The polar express train ride was purely magical. All of the staff are warm and engaging. The jugglers, singing hobo, Santa Claus, Mrs Claus are very interactive with the children throughout the train ride. My children are young (1 and 2) and they were fascinated...More

The idea is beautiful but they were very flimsy with their hot coco. We all got a third of a paper cup of hot chocolate and a small cookie. The performers could have dressed more Christmas like instead of like street performers. The fact that...More

Hello, thank you for the review. As far as the Hot Chocolate, it is about 1/2 a cup. Remember, it is for the children and we arent being cheap, we have learned that any more gets spilled on the kids, mom or the floor. It...More

Our family did not have a great experience. My daughter got hurt because a worker on the train said, "climb aboard," before the stairs were set up correctly. She did what she was told and injured her nose/face (so upsetting and scary). Then once on...More
