Experience the spirit of the season with friends and family in Grapevine, Texas

GRAPEVINE, TEXAS (October 20, 2020) – It’s the most wonderful time of the year in Grapevine, the Christmas Capital of Texas®. Although 2020 is making the naughty list, Grapevine is still hosting hundreds of events over 40 days and will be transformed into a spectacular Winter Wonderland adorned with millions of twinkling lights. One of Grapevine’s signature events is the North Pole Express, presented by Great Wolf Lodge, where passengers of all ages board the beautifully decorated Victorian coaches of the Grapevine Vintage Railroad for a magical journey to the North Pole.

Tickets for this traditional Christmas experience are officially on sale today at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at GrapevineTexasUSA.com/Christmas. Dates for the North Pole Express are November 27, 28, 29, 30 and December 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23. Ticket prices for the North Pole Express are $34 for Touring Class and $38 for First Class, per person. A $5 Lap Child Ticket is required for children 12 months and younger.  

The first priority of the Grapevine Vintage Railroad is the health and safety of our guests. We have been hard at work to address the challenges presented by COVID-19. The beloved North Pole Express program will look slightly different with only 50 percent of seats in each coach available. In place of the Broadway-style Christmas show, the experience has been expanded to feature Santa and his cast of jovial elves entertaining guests onboard the train with energetic performances focusing on sharing in the kindness of the season.

Your ticket includes the North Pole Express excursion, a Memory Mug and a recipe card on how to make Santa’s Special Frosty Chocolate Snow Milk, Souvenir Ticket, “We Believe” Silver Bell, Delicious Christmas Cookie and a voucher for a COMPLIMENTARY photo with Santa.

Tickets for this special Christmas Capital of Texas do sell out very quickly, so families are encouraged to purchase tickets and book their stay in a Grapevine hotel as soon as possible. For more information on Grapevine’s North Pole Express, visit GrapevineTexasUSA.com/Christmas.
