I love doing fun things with the kids during the holiday season. If you’re in St. Louis, you should definitely check out the Polar Express Train Ride at St. Louis Union Station!
Santa and his helpers greet passengers at the “North Pole” and then board the train, where each child is given the first gift of Christmas – a silver sleigh bell. Chefs aboard each car lead passengers in singing Christmas carols on the ride back to St. Louis Union Station. In addition to the train ride, St. Louis Union Station will be running a holiday fire and light show set to Christmas music on the train shed lake.
St. Louis Union Station also will host a series of Magical Meals – interactive character dinners in the beautiful Grand Hall of the historic train station – during the Polar Express season. Featuring 3-D light shows projected on the ceiling and visits with Santa’s elves and holiday characters, the dinner sessions are available on selected days when the Polar Express Train Ride is in operation. Dinners are served buffet style with separate adult and children’s selections priced between $18 and $25. Children ages two and under are complimentary. An elaborate holiday dessert buffet accompanies the dinners.
