The Polar Express Train Ride – Woonsocket, RI

Chicago Tribune names Blackstone Valley’s THE POLAR EXPRESS Train Ride as one of the top Christmas attractions in the country.

Inspired by Chris Van Allsburg’s Christmas classic, this family favorite becomes reality during a 3-hour event that includes a 90-minute excursion on a real-life train with storytelling, sing-a-longs, games, delicious cookies, hot chocolate served in a collectable souvenir mug, and a special visit from Santa where he personally delivers the first gift of Christmas to every child!

Arrive an hour before your trip for fantastic photo opportunities beside our custom-made Polar Express backdrops with the characters of our show, a kids area that includes coloring and writing letters to Santa, and our official Polar Express gift shop; all inside the beautifully-decorated Historic Blackstone Valley Train Depot where music is playing and the spirit of Christmas fills the air.

After we return to the depot from our train ride to the North Pole, stay for a complementary photo with Santa. These photos often make great Christmas cards…and are memories that last a lifetime!!!

Join us for an experience unlike any other!

Weekends from November 17th – December 23rd.
