Presented by Grand Canyon Railway, the POLAR EXPRESS will be gearing up for its 17th year transporting “all who truly believe” from Williams to the North Pole starting Friday, Nov. 10, 2017, through Sunday, Jan. 6, 2018 on select dates. Even though it is still summer, tickets are selling fast but currently are available Sunday through Thursday for $41 (adults) and $31 (children); Friday and Saturday for $53 (adults) and $43 (children).
The 90-minute holiday experience delights both the young and the young at heart, where the pages from Chris Van Allsburg’s classic children’s book come to life. Guests can expect visits from chefs offering hot chocolate and chocolate-chip cookies, and, of course, the man of the evening – Santa Claus himself. Caroling and laughter fills the train, making the journey to the North Pole an awaited yearly tradition. The Grand Canyon Railway & Hotel also offers a POLAR EXPRESS Package, which features overnight accommodations as well as POLAR EXPRESS Train Ride tickets for guests. Included in this package is the POLAR EXPRESS train excursion, a one-night stay at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel, and breakfast and dinner at the Grand Depot Café. The train departs on select dates at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Book online at www.thetrain.com/special-events/the-polar-express for 2017/2018 or call 1.888.848.3511.
