The Polar Express
210 S. Canal St.
Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, passengers on the Amtrak train will relive the magic of the classic story as they are whisked away on The Polar Express for a magical one-hour trip through the tunnels, rail yards, and neighborhoods along the Chicago River. Once on board, the car host will work their way through the coach and punch your golden ticket before hot chocolate and a delicious cookie are served by dancing chefs. Passengers then read along with the classic children’s book, The Polar Express, by Chris Van Allsburg. Santa and his helpers board the train to greet passengers and each guest is given the first gift of Christmas – a silver sleigh bell.
