Ticket sales begin on Wednesday, September 25 at 10 a.m.

Experience the magic of Christmas aboard Grapevine Vintage Railroad’s North Pole Express®, presented by Great Wolf Lodge.

Guests are presented with a Souvenir Ticket as they begin their journey aboard the beautifully decorated Grapevine Vintage Railroad. As guests board the train, Santa’s elves greet them with a Memory Mug of Santa’s special Frosty Chocolate Snow Milk. After being seated, guests are served a delicious Christmas cookie to enjoy on the way to Reindeer Ridge. When the train arrives at Reindeer Ridge, Mrs. Claus steps on board and presents each child with a “We Believe” silver bell. The train then continues on to the North Pole. Upon arrival, guests stroll through the snowy North Pole Forest, making their way to Santa’s Workshop. Once inside the Workshop, Santa, Mrs. Claus and a cast of jovial elves perform a Broadway-style Christmas performance and share in the kindness of the season. 

Following the magical Christmas performance, North Pole Express guests receive a voucher for a COMPLIMENTARY photo with Santa.
