The magical story of The Polar Express comes to life as the train departs Stettler, Alberta, for a one hour long round-trip journey to the North Pole.

Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, passengers will relive the magic of the story as they are whisked away on THE POLAR EXPRESS™. Once onboard, passengers are served hot chocolate and a cookie treat by Polar Express Chefs, will be presented with a souvenir golden The Polar Express ticket, and everyone receives a ceramic souvenir Polar Express mug. Santa will board the train at the North Pole, and during the return trip will walk through each car giving out the “first gift of Christmas” – a silver sleigh bell – to each and every guest who wants one. Please note: There are no bathrooms on board the train. The train ride is one hour long, so please plan accordingly.

SEATS ON ALL ALBERTA PRAIRIE TRAINS ARE FIRST CLASS AND EACH SEAT RECEIVES ALL THE SAME CONSIDERATIONS & PERKS.

All trains depart and return to Stettler, Alberta. "Don't forget Grandma"

Where is Alberta Prairie Railway located?

Stettler, Alberta is straight east of Red Deer on Hwy 12. Alberta Prairie's station and passenger loading area is located at 4611- 47 Avenue in Stettler AB which is in the south-east part of town. Head for the only burgundy-coloured grain elevator and you will end up right at the station.

Fantastic, enthusiastic team members. Great entertainment, food and experience. We enjoyed this immensely and hope to try one of the other packages when the kids are older. Big Valley was absolutely hospitable as well. We would definitely do this again! Well worth the cost. Bathrooms and facilities were clean.
