Take a magical train ride from St. Louis' Uniion Station on the Polar Express. Tickets to the magical place will go on sale for the Polar Express Ride and will start taking riders to see the Big Man in Red in November. Join Santa and his elves on a trip of a lifetime.

Begin your journey at St. Louis Union Station Train Park, where you will meet the Conductor inviting you to board THE POLAR EXPRESS™ train ride.  Set to The Polar Express motion picture soundtrack, this unique holiday experience transports passengers into the magic of the beloved holiday classic.

Your ticket includes a reading of the classic book, a nice hot cup of hot chocolate, and a tasty cookie. Families and guests are encouraged to wear their favorite Christmas jammies on the train ride. When you arrive at the North Pole Santa and his elves will be there and will pick a good boy and girl for a magical gift of Christmas.

If you have little ones this is a perfect gift to give them. Several of my close friends have done this and it seems like a fun time. No matter what age you are this would be a magical trip that no one will ever forget.
