Get your Polar Express tickets now

October 10, 2014

Tickets for the 2014 Polar Express are now on sale. If you want to ride the Virginia & Truckee Railroad to the North Pole this holiday season, get your tickets soon or you’ll be left at the station.

The Polar Express excursion train has sold out in past seasons, making early purchases imperative. In fact, you can’t buy tickets at Eastgate Station where trains depart. To get your Polar Express tickets, call (877) 724-5007 or (775) 291-0208. Tickets can also be purchased online from Activity Tickets. Note that tickets must be purchased in advance and will be available at will call when you arrive at the Eastgate Depot.

Regular coach and VIP tickets are available. The trip is on the same train, but VIP treatment on a separate parlor car includes additional entertainment, extra time with Santa, a special holiday treat, and a Polar Express ceramic hot chocolate mug. Everyone, however, receives the special Christmas gift of a silver sleigh bell, hot chocolate and cookies, and a reading of the Polar Express story by Chris Van Allsburg.

VIP tickets are $68 for children ages 2 to 12 (free for children under 2 who sit on a lap) and $78 for adults. Coach tickets are $42 for adults and $32 for children.

During the 2014 holiday season, the Polar Express will provide service to the North Pole on weekends from November 20 through December 22. For more information and details, refer to “Polar Express on the Virginia & Truckee Railroad.”
