The Polar Express has been a tradition for our family four times now and yes the adults have just as much fun as the children. The staff is full of enthusiasm and the total experience runs very smoothly from the ticket purchase to the time we get off the train. A must experience for all!!

We had to be at the depot over an hour before our boarding time for the Polar Express and were a little worried about what we would do for that time. No need to worry!
