COVID-19 Updates

DURANGO, Colo. (Sept. 22, 2021) - Understandably, we have received many inquiries about the status of THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride and whether events will return to markets across the US, Canada, and the UK this holiday season. We are happy to report that the vast majority of events will return in 2021 - including several new locations!

Each event location is independently owned and operated and will make their own decision as to whether they will operate based on requirements from federal, state, and local health authorities. A full list of licensed hosts can be found on our Locations page. Hosts who have announced they are not operating THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride this season have been marked “Returning 2022”.

THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride locations will follow all local, state, and federal health orders for preventing COVID-19 spread. Following CDC and TSA directives, face coverings will be required at most US locations while on the train and in indoor public spaces. This requirement is due to the majority of our hosts operating on trains classified as transportation conveyances by the TSA.

We recognize that your experience on THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride may be slightly different this season, but we are confident that our valued host railroads will continue offering a magical adventure full of holiday cheer. All Aboard!
