Take Your Children for a Ride on the Polar Express

Embark on a magical’Polar Express’ train ride from Southern California to visit with Santa Claus himself at his “North Pole” workshop.

On Dec. 1,2,3,8,9,10,15,16 and 17, ride the train from the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, where elves will lead your family in Christmas songs, holiday trivia games and storytelling.

Santa greets the guests as they arrive at the workshop. At the workshop, children will be able to play in a play area and enjoy craft activities. Other activities include Thomas the Tank Engine play tables, a visit and photos with Santa, and cookies and hot chocolate.

Before boarding the train guests can visit with Mrs. Claus and enjoy refreshments at Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen at Pinacate Station, see the model railroad layout, write a letter to Santa and shop at the vendor booths and the museum gift shop.
