Event Type

Museum of Discovery and Science, in partnership with Rail Events Productions, and Brightline bring Warner Bros.’ THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride to Fort Lauderdale.

Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, passengers will relive the magic of the classic story as they are whisked away on THE POLAR EXPRESS™ for a magical one-hour trip to meet Santa. Once on board, car hosts will work their way through the coach and punch golden tickets before hot chocolate and a delicious cookie are served by dancing chefs. Passengers then read along with the classic children’s book, The Polar Express, by Chris Van Allsburg. Santa and his helpers board the train to greet passengers and each guest is given the first gift of Christmas. During the trip, characters on each car lead passengers in caroling and onboard entertainment – just like in the film! Each guest will take home a keepsake sleigh bell in addition to the wonderful memories made on this magical trip.

The journey begins November 11, 2018, and runs through January 1, 2019, on select dates. Exact dates, fares and excursion times are available by visiting Ticket prices range from $50 to $70, depending on date and class of service. Families are encouraged to wear their pajamas for the ride! Can’t wait to start the holiday season? Use promo code EARLYBIRD to save $10 per ticket on dates November 11, 17 and 18, 2018.

The Museum will extend THE POLAR EXPRESS™ experience for visitors with screenings of THE POLAR EXPRESS: AN IMAX 3D EXPERIENCE Saturdays and Sundays from November 10 through December 9, 2018, and will offer special appearances by THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride Conductor and North Pole Pajama Parties at the Museum.
