The Polar Express began its runs through Colorado three years ago. Passengers can expect an experience mirroring the movie and the classic children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg.

Polar Express is theater on wheels. If you’ve watched the movie or read the book, it follows that completely, so you become part of the story. You board the train, you have hot chocolate, you take the journey to the North Pole,” Tallman explained.
