Alberta Prairie Railway offers THE POLAR EXPRESS train ride

Train heads to the North Pole starting Dec. 1

A holiday train ride aboard Alberta Prairie Railway is bringing THE POLAR EXPRESS motion picture to life starting Dec. 1.

The one-hour THE POLAR EXPRESS Train Ride departs from Stettler for a round trip to North Pole.

Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, passengers will relive the magic of the story as they are whisked away on THE POLAR EXPRESS.

Hot chocolate and a cookie treat will be served as passengers read along with the classic children’s book, The Polar Express, by Chris Van Allsburg, about a boy who takes a magical Christmas Eve train ride to the North Pole to receive a special gift from Santa.

Santa and his helpers greet passengers at the North Pole and then board the train and children will receive a silver sleigh bell. The fun continues with a Christmas singalong on the ride back to Stettler.

THE POLAR EXPRESS Train Ride will run until Dec. 21 on select dates. Tickets are $40 for children 11 and under, and $65 for those 12 and older.

Families are encouraged to wear their pajamas for the ride.
