Experience the magic of Chris Van Allsburg’s  classic children’s book The Polar Express come to life on the rails of the Nevada Northern Railway.  This magical family adventure departs from Ely, Nevada to go see, meet, and ride with Santa at the North Pole.  Just like in the movie and the book, along the way, we will meet a lively bunch of Santa’s helpers, including the elves, and the chef. We will all be served hot chocolate and cookies while listening to the beloved children’s story of the Polar Express.  Pajamas are very much in style on this family train ride.

Everyone will experience that magic moment when the train arrives at the North Pole, where Santa Claus himself will join us. Santa will board The Polar Express and personally present each child their own special gift so they can always remember the spirit of Christmas, and their trip on the Polar Express.
