You can join the Polar Express in Florida for a magical trip to Santa

Nalynn Dolan Caine |
Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, you can live the magic of the story The Polar Express for a magical trip to meet Santa in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Once on board, your hosts will work their way through the car and punch your ticket before hot chocolate and a delicious cookie are served by dancing chefs on your one-hour trip.

Passengers then read along with the classic children’s book, the Polar Express, by Chris Van Allsburg.

Santa and his elves board the train to greet passengers with the first gift of Christmas.

During the trip, characters on each car lead passengers in an immersive onboard experience just like in the film! In addition to the wonderful memories made on this magical trip, each guest will take home a keepsake sleigh bell and souvenir ticket.

Coaches seat between 48 and 64 passengers (depending on the car) inside of beautiful new Brightline railcars adorned in festive holiday decor.

Good to know: Passengers are required to arrive approximately one hour before their listed departure time in order to park, pass through security.

Value Departures: $55 Adult, $50 Child
Standard Departures: $65 Adult, $60 Child
Peak Departures: $75 Adult, $70 Child.
Children under two may ride for free provided they are not occupying a seat and ride on an adult’s lap.

The only differences between Value, Standard, and Peak pricing are the dates and/or times of the rides.

The event functions exactly the same on all departures and passengers enjoy the same experience.
