(Repeats Dec. 27 - 30)….Polar Express - The Polar Express comes to West Texas to recreate all the sights and sounds of the time-honored story. Picture the excitement of children dressed in pajamas with golden tickets clutched in their hands as they board the train and prepare to embark on their journey to the North Pole. The story begins when the Conductors calls "All aboard" and gleefully punches everyone's ticket. Little faces will peer out the train's windows as we pull out of the station on our way to the North Pole. Guests will hear the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack as the story reading begins and the book's characters come to life. Dancing chefs will serve hot cocoa and cookies to all riders in a merry fashion as the doubting hobo wanders through the train. The train stops where children will behold the magic of the North Pole from their warm train seats. With a jolly "Ho, ho, ho" Santa waves to everyone and climbs aboard where he will greet each child and present them with the iconic silver sleigh bell - listen carefully, only believers can hear its ringing! Christmas carols will be sung as elves dance along as the journey back to the station begins after a memorable ride that sets the for the whole holiday season.
