A fun evening--- lots of attention to detail for children. Hot chocolate and cookies were a hit! Lots of energy and participation. Great memory maker!

Our daughter really enjoyed the Polar Express train ride. Highly recommended. We went when there was snow, and she really loved that. Was a little dark at night, might've been a bit better to go in he afternoon to see more out the windows.
