Do you have your “golden ticket”? The Polar Express will be rolling into Squamish this holiday season! Travel aboard the Polar Express for a 40 minute long train ride enjoying delicious cookies and hot chocolate as you make your way to the North Pole!
Once you arrive in the beautiful decorated North Pole you will be greeted by Santa and Mrs. Claus (with the magic bell). There will be tons of fun to be had by the whole family, visit the cab of the Royal Hudson 2860, decorate gingerbread cookies, Christmas crafts, write a letter to Santa or stop by the Elf’s workshop and make yourself a wooden train to take home. Take a ride on the mini rail or view and operate a massive model railway display.
If you are in need of some food or snacks visit the cafe or the Candy Shoppe. And don’t forget to stop by and visit the Polar Express retail shop.
And of course remember to – WEAR YOUR PYJAMAS !!!!
