The Polar Express Train Ride in Sacramento, California is a hour-long trip to the North Pole. Passengers can enjoy hot chocolate and tasty cookies as they ride along with the story’s characters. Once they reach the North Pole, Santa himself will come on-board the train to give each passenger a silver sleigh bell, as the “first gift of Christmas.” The Polar Express Train opens on December 23, 2018 and closes on January 1, 2019. It is closed on the 26th and the 27th. Buy your tickets before it sells out!
