Thank you for such a magical time! Could not have asked for better weather yesterday 🎅🎡🎄💕🧸🚂🚂🚂
Hello, Will the event still take place next weekend?
Has any decisions been made on canceling the Polar Express for 2020
Merry Christmas from the Ross Family. Our evening on the Polar Express was truly Magical and seem through the eyes of the children.....
🎄❄️🎄❄️
An experience they’ll never forget! ❤️
I just wanted to write a quick thank you for a truly magical experience last night. We were booked on the 7:15 ride. There was a small issue with our seats, and rather than have us sit in the family coach seats we paid for without a table, your staff upgraded us to a private area of the dome car, complete with couches, armchairs and what felt like our own conductor, servers, and character from the story. We and our kids enjoyed it immensely. I didn't think to ask their names last night, but I did get a picture of our kids with the staff who took care of us. I wish I could thank them personally for being so wonderful to our kids and to us. They learned our kids' names right away and called them by name the entire ride. They danced and sang with them. The conductor let them try on his hat. They felt like friends by the time it was over. We especially appreciated the extra personal attention because our six year old son has autism, and events like this can be hit or miss. We worried that the crowds and noise might be overwhelming for him, but your staff made us all feel so comfortable, and the extra room to move around didn't hurt, either! My son looked like he was meeting his hero when Santa came in, and we loved that he took the time to sit with the kids to take pictures and visit. As we were walking to the parking lot after our ride, our son said "I feel good about that train ride." Believe me, there is no greater compliment to your amazing staff and beautiful train than that. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for a truly magical night.
I just want to take a quick minute to say thank you so much for a truly magical experience for my kids last night. There was a small issue with our seats, and rather than have us sit in the small area we paid for without a table, your staff very graciously upgraded us to our own private section of the dome car, complete with couches, armchairs and what seemed like our own private conductor, character from the story, and servers. This was an absolute dream come true, and our kids enjoyed it immensely. The staff we had taking care of us last night were absolutely amazing, and they made the experience that much more fun. They learned our kids' names immediately and called them by name the entire ride. They danced and sang with them and gave them tons of personal attention. It meant a lot to us to have such a relaxed environment because our six year old son has autism, and events like this can be hit or miss for us. We worried about him being overwhelmed by all the people and the noise, but your staff made us all feel so comfortable, and the extra room to spread out certainly didn't hurt, either! As we were walking to the parking lot last night after our ride, my son said to me, "I feel good about that train ride." Believe me, there is no greater compliment to your staff or your beautiful train than that. I wish I had thought to ask for their names last night so I could thank them personally, but I did get a picture. Please know you made our kids and us so very happy, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a truly magical night.
Ethan Had a wonderful time
It is ridiculous to not cancel or give out refunds due to inclement weather to an attraction geared towards small children. So either we put our children at risk or we lose out on $200? $200 is a lot of money for most families! Merry Christmas scrooges!
Have tickets for the train tonight...with the weather and traffic alerts, is the train being cancelled? There’s no way we can travel in for this.
Is polar express canceled tonight due to weather? If so, who do we get in touch with for refund?
