Grand Canyon Railway Polar Express

Children enjoying Santa on the Polar Express Train

The Season of Giving

Help a less fortunate child by bringing a new, unwrapped toy to the Grand Canyon Railway Depot when you come to ride The Polar Express. All items collected are donated to the the local Food Bank.

Polar Express to the North Pole

Experience the magic of The Polar Express, the classic children's book by Chris Van Allsburg. The Polar Express comes to life when the train departs the Williams Depot for a journey through the dark and quiet wilderness for a special visit to the "North Pole". Enjoy hot chocolate and cookies while listening to the magical story. Watch the joy on the children's faces when the train arrives at the North Pole, where Santa Claus and his reindeer are waiting! Santa will board The Polar Express and hand each child their own special gift. Make this a family holiday tradition. Call today to make your reservations because space is limited to those who truly believe in the spirit of Christmas! Book by calling 1-800-222-6966.

Unlike our regular daily train, The Polar Express does not go to the Grand Canyon.
