The magical THE POLAR EXPRESSTM
story comes to life when the train departs Union Station for a one-hour roundtrip journey through downtown Chicago.
Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, passengers will relive the magic of the story as they are whisked away on THE POLAR EXPRESS™. Once onboard, hot chocolate and treats are served by dancing chefs and passengers read along with the classic children’s book, The Polar Express
, by Chris Van Allsburg. Santa and his helpers will also visit with passengers, where each guest is given the first gift of Christmas – a silver sleigh bell. Chefs aboard each car lead passengers in singing Christmas carols on the ride back to Union Station.
