The Ride

Thank you to all of our loyal Polar Express fans!

We tried many different options and configurations, but unfortunately, this year, we find we cannot safely produce the Polar Express™ Train Ride under the current conditions.

THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride is a theatrical re-creation of the classic children’s story on board a real train. Set to the soundtrack of the motion picture, 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.

Passengers are served hot chocolate and a treat by dancing chefs, enjoy a reading of the book by Chris Van Allsburg, and receive the first gift of Christmas (a silver sleigh bell) after Santa boards the train to greet families. Attendants lead passengers in caroling and fun holiday activities on the return trip to Galveston’s historic depot.

THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride in Galveston consists of six separate cars pulled by vintage locomotives from the Galveston Railroad Museum’s collection. On board, you will be seated in either Coach or First Class according to your ticket purchase. Every guest will experience the same excitement and wonder of THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride.

Schedule & Tickets

The Etix Box Office, its phone center and website, are the only authorized outlets for tickets to THE POLAR EXPRESS™ at the Galveston Railroad Museum. We do not allow tickets purchased from any other sources, such as brokers or secondary market web sites. We urge patrons to purchase tickets only from Etix Box Office.
When you buy from someone other than the Etix Box Office:

• We cannot guarantee that your tickets are genuine
• You almost always pay more than face value
• We cannot replace lost or stolen tickets
• We cannot contact you with information on show cancellations, time changes or other useful information

In the event of an emergency cancellation due to weather or mechanical failures, performance(s) may be canceled. If we issue you a refund for a ticket due to a canceled or postponed event, we will issue a refund of the ticket price paid, reserved parking price and all service fees. In no event will delivery charges or any other amounts be refunded. If a refund is issued, it will be issued using the same method of payment that was used to purchase the tickets in the name of the person who purchased the ticket. We will not be liable for travel or any other expenses that you or anyone else incurs in connection with a canceled or postponed event.
