Tickets for the 2017 Polar Express™ are now on sale. If you want to ride the Polar Express™ to the North Pole this holiday season, get your tickets soon or you’ll be left out in the cold.

The Polar Express™ excursion train on the V & T Railroad has sold out in all past seasons, making early ticket purchases imperative. Tickets must be purchased in advance – you can’t buy them at the depot. Polar Express™ tickets are available online and by phone.

There will be three types of tickets in 2017 – regular coach, VIP and Twilight Trains. The trips are on the same train, but VIPs ride on a separate parlor car that includes additional entertainment, extra time with Santa, a special holiday treat, and more. Everyone, however, receives the special Christmas gift of a silver sleigh bell from Santa, hot chocolate and cookies, and a reading of the Polar Express™ story by Chris Van Allsburg.

During the 2017 holiday season, the Polar Express™ will provide service to the North Pole on select dates starting on November 18 and running through December 30.
