Last year, we took our daughter and her best friend on a magical train ride through the  landscape at dusk. As it grew darker and darker outside, strange things began to happen. You begin the ride with a reading from The Polar Express. Chef characters will serve hot chocolate and cookies. When you arrive at the North pole, Santa and his elves will board the train to interact with the children. Then, the chefs will lead the singing of Christmas carols on the way back to the station.
It's a lot of fun!

The St. Louis Union Station hosts the wildly popular Polar Express Train Ride every November and December. And seats fill up quickly. In fact, only a few remain so book your tickets now before they are all gone. Get your tickets here.
