Ho Ho Ho all aboard
While visions of sugarplums might not yet be dancing in heads, tickets on the Grand Canyon Railway & Hotel’s perennially popular Polar Express have been on sale since April and are going fast.
Celebrating 18 years of magic, The Polar Express will run on select dates from November 9 through January 5, departing the Railway’s historic depot in Williams, Ariz., to the North Pole, at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Polar Express reservations can be made by calling 1-888-848-3511 or by visiting www.thetrain.com/polarexpress.
Tickets are available Sunday through Thursday for $43 (adults) and $33 (children); Friday and Saturday for $55 (adults) and $45 (children); and The Christmas Eve Limited for $79 (adults) and $59 (children).
The 60-minute plus on-board holiday experience delights both the young and the young at heart, where the pages from Chris Van Allsburg’s classic children’s book come to life. Guests can expect visits from chefs offering hot chocolate and chocolate-chip cookies, and, of course, the man of the evening – Santa Claus himself. Caroling and laughter fills the train, making the journey to the North Pole an eagerly awaited yearly tradition.
The Grand Canyon Railway & Hotel also offers the POLAR EXPRESS™ Package, which features overnight accommodations as well as POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride tickets for guests. Included in this package is the POLAR EXPRESS™ train excursion, a one-night stay at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel, and breakfast and dinner at the Grand Depot Café.
