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 lined path to the North Pole. Guests will enjoy a dazzling show featuring classic Christmas movies, songs and lights on the North Pole Stage. Santa then makes a special appearance, wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and shares his Frosty Chocolate Snow Milk served in a memory mug to all.
