Join the French Lick Scenic Railway aboard The Polar Express!  The experience begins at the station decorated with garlands, lights and Christmas trees, making the perfect picture opportunity. As you get ready to board the train, the conductor happily greets all of our guests.

Once the train is underway, the conductor will punch your ticket as the book, The Polar Express, is read aloud and enhanced with song and dance by our crew, with a special Cookie & Hot Chocolate presentation, just like in the movie! 

When the train pulls into the North Pole, we pick up Santa Claus himself and he presents each child with their own "first gift of the season", a shiny silver sleigh bell.  You will also be entertained by Santa's elves with interactive songs and dance that everyone can participate in.

To make the experience more magical, the children are encouraged to wear their pajamas. Parents are also welcome to join in the fun with their own pajamas!

Trains run on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays at 5:30 and 7:30 from November 4th through Sunday January 1st.

Room packages are available.  Coach tickets available for $32.00 each plus a $3.00 ticket processing fee.  To book your package, call us at 877-936-3866.
