Polar Express Returns to Chicago for the Holidays

See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

After a successful inaugural season in 2015, the Polar Express Train Ride will return to Chicago’s historic Union Station this holiday season. The one-hour train journey is modeled after the beloved children’s book, “The Polar Express,” by Chris Van Allsburg.

The journey will begin on December 3, 2016, and will feature hot chocolate and cookies, dancing chefs, Santa and his elves, caroling, keepsake sleigh bells and souvenirs, and a reading of the classic book. Prices will begin at $49 per adult and $35 per child.
