The Most Popular Christmas Attraction in New Jersey Sells Out Early – Here’s How to Get Tickets
It's Christmas in...almost July. While many feel that summer in New Jersey is "the most wonderful time of the year," Christmas is a close second. Tickets for New Jersey's most popular holiday attraction sell out in record time every year. I don't want you to be on the naughty list, so here's how to plan ahead.
The wildly popular Polar Express Train Ride out of Whippany will begin selling tickets on July 6 at 9 a.m. Groups of 20 or more may purchase passes beginning June 29 via phone only at 973-419-6255.
Go Inside New Jersey's Most Popular Christmas Attraction - The Polar Express Train Ride
Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, passengers live the magic of the classic story The Polar Express as they take a special one-hour trip to the North Pole. Once on board, your car hosts will work their way through the coach and punch your golden ticket before hot chocolate and shortbread are served by dancing chefs. Passengers then read along with the classic children’s book, The Polar Express, by Chris Van Allsburg.
Santa and his helpers board the train to greet passengers and each guest is given the first gift of Christmas – a silver sleigh bell. During the trip, characters on each car lead passengers in caroling and onboard entertainment just like in the film! Each guest will take home a keepsake sleigh bell.
I've been on The Polar Express Train Ride and there's a reason seats go so quickly. It is simply the best holiday attraction in the state. While it's a blast for those young and old, the kids will absolutely love this. This is totally worth the road trip.
The trains depart from November 3 through December 30.
