Polar Quick Facts


Trip length in time : One hour forty minutes
Departure point: 99 Elizabeth Street Phillipsburg NJ 08865
How early should I arrive: Due to remote parking and the need to take shuttle busses we strongly suggest you are AT LEAST 30 minutes early. All trips sell out so we most probably can not seat you on a later train.
What happens on the train? The train is beautifully decorated and you will enjoy the story of the Polar Express read very audibly over our speaker system, all choreographed with the Polar Express music from the movie. Hot Chocolate and Cookies are served to every CHILD ( its their day!). Santa boards the train and visits the children along with his elves and each child receives a bell ( the first gift of Christmas) from Santa.
Can we take pictures with Santa? Yes you may on your own, or, make use of our professional photographers who make available ( at a charge) beautiful color pictures of your family and Santa.
Are trips cancelled due to weather? No, only in a government posted State Of Emergency.
Refunds: There are none.
Peanuts: it must be assumed that the cookies have or have been made in a factory that contains nuts.
Hot chocolate: The hot chocolate we use is Swiss Miss. please contact them with contents inquires.
Hot chocolate: Kids first! Due to the fact that we are serving over 400 people a trip, we will serve the children first ( after all the trip is for them!). If you are a parent and you are wearing PJ's we will serve you Hot chocolate upon request.
Groups: We will do everything possible to accommodate groups, BUT, this is quite difficult. Please inform us via email ( contact link above) of any groups over 15). to sit together you must be EARLY, ALL TOGETHER, and IN THE FRONT OF THE LINE. You must see the station attendants on the platform and they will direct you to the Northern most car ( to your right) where we will attempt to seat you together.
Once again, arrive early and board all together.
How do we get our tickets? We DO NOT mail tickets. You simply bring your emailed receipt to the ticket office the day of the trip to retrieve your tickets.
Baby Seats

Exchanges:due to the fact that each trip sells out, there is no way we can exchange your tickets for another trip. Please make sure when you enter the dates and times that they are correct, and check with family BEFOREHAND to make sure there are no schedule conflicts. We also recommend having at least 2 dates/times ready in case your first choice is sold out.: these are NOT allowed on the train as you would never want to hold one on your lap for 1.5 hours. Lap Sitters are just that, a child on your lap.

Groups: There are no group discounts for Polar Express. When ordering tickets for several families it is best if 1 person takes the lead and orders for the entire group, that way you are guaranteed to all have tickets for the same trip. If you order early and another in your party tries later, and the trip is sold out, we cannot switch you or them into another trip. Also, once you get to the station and get your tickets, make sure the group leader informs one of the station platform attendants that your group is here, and the number of people in your group, so we can help you all board and sit together.
