All aboard! It’s that time of year again. You know, when the Christmas lights start coming down from the attic and little boys and girls mail their lists off to Santa Claus. That means it’s also time for the Polar Express. The Texas State Railroad is shipping boys, girls, and their families to the North Pole from Nov. 11–Dec. 27. Departure times are 3:30 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 6:30 p.m., and 8:00 p.m., although not all dates offer all four departure times. Check the calendar to find out if your preferred date also has your preferred departure time.
Ticket prices also vary depending on the departure date and time. Tickets are available for adults, children, and adults with children aged one and under.

Let Your Kids Wear Their Christmas Best
What kind of outfits do your kids like to wear on Christmas? Pajamas, of course! Kids are encouraged to don their favorite PJs for the trip to see Santa. Pick out some pajamas with reindeer and Santa Claus to make the event more festive. Bring a jacket along too, since it can get a little chilly at the North Pole.
Upgrade to First Class
Have you ever flown first class? It’s quite an experience. You can also have a first-rate first-class experience on the Polar Express. Imagine the delight on your children’s faces when they get their own Polar Express mug, hot chocolate, and cookies, all to be enjoyed while relaxing in tabletop seating. Your kids will definitely feel the magic of the Polar Express as they fly through Texas on their way to the North Pole.
