Stringtown - Polar Express

Christmas season
455 East 200 North
Lindon, UT 84042
Free, need a reservation


The Polar Express is a train ride for the whole family that leaves the Stringtown Station and travels to the North Pole where Santa Claus lives. Each guest on the Polar Express will get to visit Santa Claus, tell him what they want for Christmas, and get their picture taken. Santa also sings Christmas songs with the kids, tells a Christmas story, and teaches about the true meaning of Christmas.

Most importantly, during the journey on the Polar Express, guests will hear music see pictures about Christ's birth, His life, and the true meaning of Christmas.

The Polar Express can carry passangers of any age and size. That means kids, parents, grandparents, etc will all ride the Polar Express together to the North Pole.

Reservations will be given to the public in a random lottery fashion. Because there will be many more requests than we can accommodate, we feel this is the fairest way to allocate what reservations we have available. If you would like a reservation, please complete the form below. You will receive a notification during the first week of December regarding your request.

UPDATE: Polar Express 2010 is mostly full. We only have space for small groups of 2 and 3 riders (not including lap riders).

Thanks Liza for letting me know about this!

    Whether you have seen it once, fifty times, or more, Hale Center Theater Orem invites you to be their guests for an evening as you escape all the noise, commercialism, and greed that have invaded this time of year so you can remember what the season is all about.
