Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, Brightline 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 delicious Walkers Shortbread 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 – a silver sleigh bell.

During the trip, characters on each car lead passengers in caroling and onboard entertainment just like in the movie.

Families are encouraged to wear warm pajamas just like passengers from The Polar Express book and film.
