Event Description

The Polar Express Kingston NY is back! With the officially licensed Warner Bros™. train, this winter spectacular is a perfect replication of the movie. Board the sounds of the motion picture where the conductors punch tickets in the same fashion as Tom Hanks’ “The Polar Express” character, hot chocolate and cookies from the local bakery is served to passengers and there is a sing-along! During the ride, there will also be a reading of Chris Van Allsburg’s book that inspired it all!

Hudson Valley children and their families will discover the magic of Christmas aboard The Polar Express™ when it arrives in Kingston, New York, later this year! The officially licensed train rides inspired by the hit Warner Bros. film The Polar Express and book by Chris Van Allsburg, will be run by the Catskill Mountain Railroad from November 18 through December 28, 2018.

Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, pajama-clad passengers will relive the magic of the story and see their favorite characters come to life as they are whisked away aboard The Polar Express train cars on a magical round trip to the North Pole.

During the Polar Express ride, the conductor will punch tickets and chefs will serve hot chocolate, just like in the film. Passengers will also enjoy a sing along and a special reading of the Van Allsburg classic. At the North Pole, Santa will board the train to greet the children of high schools and all ages and will give a special sleigh bell to all those who believe. Create great family memories aboard The Polar Express! The round trip to the North Pole takes about an hour and a half, so plan accordingly.

We are conveniently located right off Exit 19 of the New York State Thruway! Board all Kingston trains at our Westbrook Lane station, located at the Kingston Plaza shopping center.

Passengers are requested to arrive approximately 30 minutes before their departure time and check in at the will call desk located in the Polar Express tent. Have a great time on the Polar Express.
