The Polar Express returns to Kingston!
November 20-December 27, 2015

Our popular Polar Express trains departing Kingston Plaza are on sale now! These special trains relive the movie experience November 20 through December 27, 2015. Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, pajama-clad passengers will relive the magic of the story and see their favorite characters come to life as they are whisked away aboard The Polar Express on a magical round trip to the North Pole. During the journey, the conductor will punch tickets and chefs will serve hot chocolate, just like in the film. Passengers will also enjoy a sing along and a special reading of the Van Allsburg classic. At the North Pole, Santa will board the train to greet the children and will give a special sleigh bell to all those who believe. We look forward to your visit with us!

Advance tickets are required, as seating is limited. All trains depart from Westbook Station at Kingston Plaza.
