Polar Express Lindon Utah

(Last Updated On: November 27, 2020)

Closed for 2020

Last night we had the great opportunity to ride the Polar Express Lindon put on by Stringtown Railroad. We had an amazing time. Because you need a reservation, there was no line. You check in and watch The Polar Express movie for about 5-10 minutes while you wait for your train to arrive.

Waiting for the train ride and watching the Polar Express.

The train ride takes you through some light displays on your way to the North Pole where you have a chance to visit Santa for free (bring your camera). After a visit with Santa, you have another ride through a Nativity and images of Jesus Christ before arriving back at the station. The entire event takes about 45 minutes and my boys loved it. Of course, their favorite part is riding the train. We even had rain the entire time, and no one cried or complained.

Ready to ride the Polar Express.

There are lights along the train ride to see Santa.

We love visiting Santa at the North Pole.

The nativity scene is on display for one section of the train ride.

Did I mention that this event is FREE? Their suggested donation is $2/person to cover costs. Any extra is donated to charity.

In order to participate in this activity, you must have a reservation. They fill  up quickly, so make sure to watch for when they open their reservations. It is random lottery who gets tickets. Click here for the reservation page

And don’t forget their Halloween Nightmare Express in October.

We love riding the Polar Express in Lindon.
