How do I attend the North Pole Express event?
The experience will start at the Historic Cotton Belt Depot platform. Passengers will get to board Victorian Rail coaches that are beautifully decorated and once it departs, elves welcome everyone with traditional Christmas music.
The train will head to the North Pole where Mrs. Claus is going to be waiting to hand out “We Believe” silver Santa bells to all the children. The train will stop at the North Pole where you can walk along the snowy Christmas Tree Trail. While you enjoy this there will be musical entertainment while you wait for Santa Clause to arrive.
