Steam down the tracks with your family aboard the North Pole Express! See the magic of the season unfold as children of all ages and adults alike experience this classic Grapevine event. Grab your P.J.'s and come with us. ALL ABOARD!!!

Create a unique “Family Christmas Memory” at the Grapevine Vintage Railroad’s North Pole Express®. Your experience begins at the Historic Cotton Belt Depot platform where you board the beautifully decorated Victorian Rail Coaches and are greeted by elves, minstrels and carolers. Departing the platform, you will enjoy live entertainment and the reading of a Christmas story when every child will receive a “We Believe” Silver Santa Bell.

Riders return to a transformed platform that now leads to the North Pole where all are in search of Santa. You will then enter a Winter Wonderland through a Christmas Tree Maze to a dazzling North Pole stage where Santa Helpers and costumed characters perform a high energy exciting traditional Christmas Show that culminates with the arrival of Santa. Santa greets the audience and asks all “Who Believe” to ring their Santa bells and the North Pole is alive with the jingles of hundreds of bells. Santa wishes everyone a Happy Christmas and then shares his Frosty Chocolate Snow Milk served in a memory mug to all the boys and girls. Santa also gives everyone a voucher for a Family Photo with him at the North Pole General Store. You can go get it right then or come back anytime during the week between noon and 7 p.m. Limit one per family.

The event area opens each day one hour before the first train departs and closes one hour after the last train returns to the station.
