We took the Polar Express during the Christmas Holiday and my kids loved it. It is a good experience that you should take them to while they still believe in the white bearded guy. We paid to have the chocolates and cookis and to seat in our own table which is a little pricier but it was worth my kids... More

We had a groupon for this attraction and were excited to see it. After navigating our way through Miami, we arrived only to find the entire thing closed! A couple of hand printed signs indicated it was closed for a special event...but no dates or times were given. Everything was locked up tight and the parking lot was deserted. We... More

If your kids like trains this is the place to go. Not many people, we've been here a couple of times and its mostly people that live here. For us as tourists, its a great place. Not expensive, lots of trains to look at, some you can go in. The day out with Thomas The Train was great. Only 20... More

I live in Broward County (Northern Broward) over an hour away. I booked these tickets a little less than a month ago and the vendor will only mail them to your home address... my tickets never arrived... I emailed the museum no response, however the vendor did have my tickets at "will call". There were no lines which is a... More

Our kids really enjoyed this experience. Take the train ride and opt for the option to drive the train. Really fun for young and old alike.

This is Miami folks! A little extension of South America. Drive 1 hour from Broward and the place is closed to prepare for a new ride! NO WARNING ON ITS WEBSITE! TOTAL LACK OF PROFESSIONALISM AND RESPECT. Won't come back.

Polar Express is a magical experience for young and old. However, this was the second year riding the Polar Express and I have to say I was disappointed. The windows on the train were so fogged up or dirty that you could not see out. We had pointed that out to the person in charge on our car before we... More

We took the grandchildren ages 8 and 3 to the Polar Express on Saturday evening at 6 p.m. It was a wonderful experience. My hat is off to the staff and performers on the train. Everyone had a great time. There were entire families who arrived in matching pajamas. Our grandchildren wore their pajamas and this adds to the experience.... More
