THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride is returning once again to the Colorado Railroad Museum! Tickets go on sale soon and will sell out quickly so start planning now.
Relive the Polar Express movie with a magical experience first hand! You’ll sing along to holiday carols with your fellow passengers featuring the Hot Chocolate Song. You’ll be riding in vintage train coaches pulled by a real coal-fired steam locomotive.
The experience ends with everyone’s favorite Santa.

Plan to Be on Time!
Arrival time is very important for 2023 due to Polar Express Pavilion seating arrangements. Please make sure you’re on time so you don’t miss any of the cabaret-style pre-show, Hot Chocolate song and dance performance, and dramatic reading and re-enactment of The Polar Express story. Suggested arrival times are 4:30 p.m., 6 p.m., or 7:30 p.m. to enjoy the pre-show; the Main Show begins promptly at 5 p.m., 6:30 p.m., or 8 p.m. Your magical train ride to the North Pole follows, but it’s only one chapter in a multi-part theatrical experience!
