North Pole Express®

  • Price: $25
  • Create a unique "Family Christmas Memory" aboard the Grapevine Vintage Railroad's North Pole Express®, presented by the Great Wolf Lodge.  As 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. As the train departs and the anticipation of arriving at the North Pole builds, elves will welcome the guests and sing traditional Christmas music.

    Then, a magical moment! As the train draws closer to the North Pole, Mrs. Claus makes a special appearance to give each child a "We Believe" silver Santa bell. Guests then arrive at the North Pole and walk along a snowy Christmas Tree trail, where, as they wait for an appearance by Santa, guests are entertained with songs and magical Christmas moments. Finally, Santa arrives! Santa wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and then shares his Frosty Chocolate Snow Milk served in a memory mug to all the boys and girls. Families will also receive a voucher for a complimentary Family Photo with Santa. Limit one per family.

    We are excited to welcome your family and friends to the North Pole Express and to Grapevine, the Christmas Capital of Texas®. 

    Please note, due to mechanical requirements, engine and equipment changes may occur without notice.
