The French Lick Scenic Railway Polar Express Train Ride is back for 2021 and it is something you don't want to miss. Grab your jammies and take a ride.


The Polar Express is a family favorite in our household.  The kids absolutely love the idea of riding on a train at Christmas time.  Due to COVID-19, the Polar Express did not run during the 2020 holiday season.


This magical experience opens on November 5th and runs through December 29th. Exact dates and times are available by visiting the Schedule & Tickets page. Each ticket includes fantastic entertainment, delicious hot chocolate, a scrumptious cookie, and a keepsake sleigh bell to bring home.  Each ticketed First Class guest receives a souvenir ceramic hot chocolate mug.  Each ticketed Dome Class guest also receives the annual souvenir ceramic hot chocolate mug AND your hot chocolate will be served to you in the iconic cup and saucer as depicted in the movie along with a selection for cookies. Both mugs are your to keep!


Families are highly encouraged to wear their favorite pajamas for the very best and most comfy experience.  This event always sells out super fast so it is best to plan ahead.


Riders will love the full Polar Express atmosphere including Christmas sounds from the motion soundtrack of the movie, an 80-minute train ride, and even dancing chefs delivering cookies.

And what would a holiday train ride be without Santa Claus.


The scenic railway does ask that you arrive at least an hour early.


Tickets go on sale Wednesday, June 16.

If you are unable to make the dates of the French Licks Polar Express Train Ride the Ohio River Scenic Railway host the Candy Cane Express.

Even more fun the Great Smoky Mountains have a Polar Express Train Ride of their own.  Imagine a train ride through the mountains and then hope for snow.
