We took the Polar Express ride this past week and I have to say that this was a HUGE disappointment. The amount they charge for this is highway robbery. The cost is $35 for adults and $25 for children, we had 5 adults and 1 child, so that was $200 for a 45 minute ride. What did we get for $200?
1. 1 Cookie Per Person
2. 1 Hot Chocolate Per Person
3. A very cheap toy and bell for the kid
4. 30 seconds tops with Santa
All other food and drink was extra, any other souvenir was extra.
They read the Polar Express which comes over a garbled speaker in the car. There is about 10 minutes total of entertainment where you sing Christmas carols. Also the nice young woman who leads you in the carols doesn't have a microphone so if you are lucky enough to be sitting where she stands you have someone yelling at the top of their lungs next to you, awesome touch. When you finally get to the North Pole you get to see one of the lamest Christmas displays ever! Santa was friendly but he didn't have a lot of time with the kids and made it through our entire car in less than 5 minutes.
We thought this would be a nice time for my son and grandparents to enjoy, but boy were we wrong. If they upped their efforts just a little it would have made a huge difference. Don't get bamboozled into thinking this will be a magical experience for your kids it won't!
