Get Your Golden Ticket & Ride the Polar Express

Ride the Polar Express 2019Do you have your golden ticket? The magical Polar Express once again returns to the West Coast Railway Park in Squamish. This must-do holiday tradition is the only Polar Express event in Western Canada.

Travel aboard the Polar Express’ 50-minute long train ride while enjoying cookies, hot chocolate and Christmas carolling. There are 4 (and sometimes 5) departures per day. After your train ride, be sure to visit the North Pole inside the West Coast Railway Association’s giant Roundhouse. Children will meet Santa and Mrs Claus, ride the mini train, build toys, and take part in other Christmas-themed activities.

If you’ve seen the beloved holiday movie, you know the kids on the train wear pjs. While pjs aren’t required, they sure are encouraged! Help your child experience the magic of the Polar Express – and give them a good chuckle – by wearing pjs yourself.

Tickets are on sale now! The Polar Express is an incredibly popular event and tickets sell out quickly. You can purchase your Polar Express tickets online.
