As we look forward to fall, THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride event is beginning to take shape. The Colorado Railroad Museum is pleased to announce a revised and updated show for THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride in 2020! Casting auditions have been held, and a whole host of carefully crafted updates have been made in order to ensure the health and safety of guests, cast and crew.

Our revised and updated show will still bring you all your favorite characters and the Magic of THE POLAR EXPRESS™! Put on your pajamas and your most fashionable mask, and bring the family to enjoy sharing hot cocoa and cookies together as the "Hot, Hot, Hot—Chocolate" song and dance unfolds before your eyes. Laugh and sing along with our cast as they tell stories and sing Christmas Carols and perform the story of The Polar Express live! Follow your Conductor through our enchanted railyard to meet Smokey and Steamer and learn, in song, how a steam locomotive works.

Climb aboard, and journey to the North Pole while more scenes from the movie unfold aboard the train. As the North Pole emerges on the horizon, elves and Santa come into view. Santa will give out "the first gift of Christmas," then your train will transport its sleepy passengers back to the present, dodging some stubborn caribou along the way! Upon arriving back in Golden you'll meet Santa and his elves and receive your very own first gift of Christmas!

All Aboard! Tickets for THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride go on sale to the General Public on October 1.
