The magic is back this holiday season for a three-hour experience at the Blackstone Valley Polar Express!!! Join us for a 90-minute train ride to view the North Pole that’s filled with singing, games, a reading of the classic children’s story “The Polar Express”, and a visit from Santa! The Conductor will be there to punch your special golden ticket, and you’ll all enjoy hot chocolate and a cookie during your trip. Plus, every child will receive a silver bell - the first gift of Christmas!

We expanded the experience outside of the depot so the fun starts before you even get on the train with a stage show, photo opportunities with the characters, children’s activities, and a whole lot more that is sure to fill us all with the spirit of Christmas!

Times: 3:30 PM & 6:30 PM
