Do 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’ 55-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, drive their own train on a massive model train layout, and take part in other Christmas-themed activities such as decorating gingerbread cookies. Be sure to take the time to write a letter to Santa. He will actually write your child back!
