Have you ever wanted to live the movie "The Polar Express?" Well, you can actually do that in Oklahoma City, OK. with the Oklahoma City Polar Express Train Ride. You'll get to experience the movie like never before as it comes to life onboard a real train! It's a full hour trip that includes hot chocolate, snacks, and performances on board by singing and dancing chefs, plus a live reading of the Chris Van Allsburg holiday classic.

That's not all there's all kinds of holiday fun family activities and caroling plus you'll also receive the first gift of Christmas, a silver sleigh bell just like in the movie. The train ride lasts about an hour or so and the man in red, Santa Claus himself makes an appearance as well. Sounds like a great time and fun for the whole family.

I know several people who have gone and every one of them said it was fantastic, even those without children. I'm thinking this is the year the family and I head to OKC and take a quick trip to the North Pole on the Oklahoma City Polar Express. Then we could hit the OKC Zoo for their Safari Lights Christmas display and round it out by stopping in Chickasha on the way home and driving through the Festival of Lights.
