Grapevine Vintage Railroad’s North Pole Express, presented by Great Wolf Lodge, is a unique traditional Christmas experience with a train excursion, Frosty Chocolate Snow Milk, Christmas Cookie, “We Believe” Silver Bell for every child, Broadway-style Christmas musical, and a commemorative photo with Santa.

Guests are presented with a Souvenir Ticket as they begin their journey to the North Pole aboard the beautifully decorated Grapevine Vintage Railroad’s North Pole Express. As guests board the train, Santa’s elves greet them with a Memory Mug of Santa’s special Frosty Chocolate Snow Milk. After being seated, guests are served a delicious Christmas cookie to enjoy on the way to Reindeer Ridge. When the train arrives at Reindeer Ridge, Mrs. Claus boards and presents each child with a “We Believe” silver bell.

The train continues on to the North Pole where, upon arrival, guests stroll through the snowy North Pole Forest, making their way to Santa’s workshop. Once inside the Workshop, Santa, Mrs. Claus and a cast of jovial elves perform a Broadway-style Christmas performance sharing in the kindness of the season before wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. Following the magical Christmas performance, North Pole Express guests receive a voucher for a complimentary photo with Santa, which is presented in a commemorative photo jacket. Additional photo packages are available for purchase.
