"Tickets On Sale June 1st- Midnight"
Is there any other way to buy tickets? No
There are three types of seating:
1. Single level cars ( seats do NOT flip)
2. Double decker cars , downstairs
3. Double decker cars, upstairs. Please note. Santa does not go upstairs ( he doesn't fit, too many cookies!). The Conductors do go upstairs to punch your tickets, and the elves hand out bells. Hot chocolate and cookies are handed up as well.
While the entertainment takes place entirely downstairs, the upstairs seating gives a very nice overview without being in the middle of everything.

Type of seating: you may choose which of type of seat you desire but this is NOT a guarantee. We will do our best to accommodate you.
Once I board the train can I change my seat? No. Each car has a crew member who seats all passengers. Please be courteous as they have many hundreds of people to put on the train in a short time. We seat you in the order you board, from the front of the section to the rear, no exceptions. We will do our best to accommodate your families needs during the boarding process.
Handicapped accessibility: Our equipment is from the 1950's and is not handicapped equipped. that being said, we do everything possible to assist our guests. We have one car that has space to secure wheel chairs and if notified in advance we will arrange to have your family sit in this area.
Wheel Chairs: the train is not wheel chair accessible. We have space on the train for your wheel chair and dedicated seating for your family , but, you must be able to navigate three moderately steep stairs into the train. the wheelchair must be the light portable type.
Golf Cart: for the elderly and handicapped we have a gold cart available to bring you down the hill from the ticket booth to the train.
Enjoy a one hour and forty five minute ride that is a recreation of the movie. The train is beautifully decorated with over 2 miles of lights! While on board feel free to visit our snack bar and gift shop.
Santa will visit with each family and you will have a chance to take picture as well. If you so desire our professional photographers will take your picture and print them out on site!

This is our second time going to the Polar Express and we loved it. It's whimsical feel makes even the adults become children again. My kids had so much fun as always! Can't wait for next year.
This was our first time riding The Polar Express. Our family of 5 has older kids - 14, 12, & 9. Everyone had an amazing time and I'm sorry it took this long for us to go. Inside the train is decorated with Christmas lights and was very festive. The entertainment was continuous and fun! Magician, jugglers, plate spinner, elfs, Santa, train conductor, ticket puncher, guitarist, bango player. We had upper level seats and would definitely choose lower level next time but the staff and entertainment included us in everything. My 14 y/o said he didn't really want to go because he thought it would be babyish but afterward he said he had a great time and wanted to go again next year. Parking is offsite with buses and trolleys to take you to the train and then to take you back to your car. Wait times each way were less than 5 minutes.
We enjoyed The Polar Express train ride 5 years ago when our first grandson was 3 years old. We all love the story, and have watched the movie literally hundreds of times. Since then we've taken our expanding family on another Polar Express train in another location, but it wasn't nearly as special as this one. This year we came back to Phillipsburg and brought our younger daughter's fiancй and his whole family ~ 19 of us in all ~ and once again we found it to be a fabulous experience for all generations! I would very highly recommend it!
I have taken my son on the Polar Express about four times and this one by far was the best! I love the added addition of the elf! His energy and enthusiasm was over-the-top! I hope you guys bring him back! And I loved this year's Santa! He has the energy needed to engage the children and help make their experience fun!
