North Pole Express®

705 S. Main Street

Create a unique "Family Christmas Memory" aboard the Grapevine Vintage Railroad's North Pole Express®, one of the most popular Christmas Capital of Texas events. Families and children of all ages will enjoy this one-of-a-kind Christmas experience.

The experience begins at the Historic Cotton Belt Depot platform where riders board the beautifully decorated Victorian Rail Coaches and are greeted by elves, minstrels and carolers. Departing the platform, enjoy live entertainment and every child receives a "We Believe" Silver Santa Bell. Riders return to a transformed platform that now leads to the North Pole where all are in search of Santa. Enter a Winter Wonderland through a Christmas Tree Maze to the North Pole stage. Santa greets the audience then explains the importance of Christmas and asks all "Who Believe" to ring their Santa Bells. The North Pole then becomes alive with the jingles of hundreds of bells. Santa wishes everyone a Happy Christmas and shares his Frosty Chocolate Snow Milk served in a memory mug to all.
