Additional information

Polar Express Experience- Train Destinations

Immediately following the story, our "trains" will depart for three

different destinations. Each train will have a personal guide that will

lead the passengers throughout their journey. We hope that this

method of travel will help to minimize waiting and lines. Each

destination will have plenty of activities to keep you entertained.

Present your golden ticket at each destination for a special hole punch!

1) Santa's Sleigh- A visit with Santa where each child will receive a special gift

and a complimentary (digital) professional photo. Digital downloads will be available

While waiting to see Santa, write him a letter to deposit in the magic mailbox.

Enjoy a coloring activity. The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg will be available

for purchase at this stop, as well as spirit sticks!

2) The Polar Express Holiday Shoppe- A guided shopping experience where

shoppers age 14 and under can buy Christmas gifts for their loved ones (including

the furry ones). All items in the shop will be priced $3. We will provide a Gift List

Envelope to help organize your child's visit to the Polar Express Holiday Shoppe.

Please complete the front portion of the envelope and be sure to detail the amount

enclosed. The information provided will help our elves assist the children with their

shopping experience.

The Polar Express movie will be playing outside the Holiday Shoppe, for those who

aren't shopping or finished shopping to enjoy.

3) The Workshop- This is where our little passengers will get to show their

creative side as they make ornaments and reindeer food for the big night, These

make and take activities are all included in your ticket purchase! Complimentary

refreshments will be served at this destination.

Tickets sales begin Tuesday 11/13 to Sayles students ONLY.

Tickets will be available to the general public beginning

Monday 11/19. Purchase your tickets early! We have a limited

number of "First Class" seats available. If we sell out of

"First Class" seating, you will receive "Coach" seating in the

bleachers. All tiny passengers age 2 and younger ride at no

charge, but are required to ride in "lap seats". Please return

the bottom portion of this flyer along with payment to school.

Special golden tickets will be sent home with your child and

will be needed for entry to the event.
