The French Lick Scenic Railway located in French Lick, Indiana has some really neat train events for all ages. By far, the most popular event is centered around the holiday favorite The Polar Express. It sold out for the 2024 event before then end of 2023.

Santa Has Heard Our Wishes

 In honor of the 20th Anniversary of THE POLAR EXPRESS™ movie, we are adding more tickets for each show.

Here's What to Expect:

Imagine this: the iconic whistle blows, the heartwarming soundtrack fills the air, and you're whisked away on a real-life train journey inspired by Chris Van Allsburg's beloved children's book, The Polar Express [The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg]. This isn't your average train ride, folks. We're talking snowy landscapes, bustling rail yards, and even a trip through a mysterious tunnel – all on the way to meet the one and only Santa Claus himself!

But wait, there's more! This isn't just a sightseeing tour. Get ready for some serious onboard fun! We're talking dancing chefs serving up steaming cups of hot chocolate and delicious cookies (because no Christmas adventure is complete without treats!), conductors punching your golden tickets (just like in the story!), and even a chance to read along with The Polar Express itself!

REAL Magic

 Keep your eyes peeled because Santa and his jolly crew are about to board the train! Each lucky passenger will receive the first gift of Christmas – a beautiful silver sleigh bell – a cherished memento of your incredible journey. The excitement doesn't stop there! On the way back from the North Pole, prepare to belt out your favorite carols with the friendly elves and immerse yourself in onboard entertainment that will create memories that last a lifetime.

Plus, every child gets to take home their very own sleigh bell as a keepsake! Seriously, how cool is that? This isn't just a train ride, it's an experience you won't want to miss!
