North Pole Express


Nov 18, 2017 to Dec 17, 2017

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday and Saturday.


BR&W's North Pole Express is the perfect way to get the entire family into the Christmas spirit! This popular annual event features interaction with Santa's Elves, an opportunity to meet Santa and Mrs Claus, refreshments, a gift from Santa and more, all included in your ticket price!


New For 2017


Based on guest feedback, we have made a few changes for 2017 that we hope will enhance your experience!


  1. Santa & Mrs Claus will visit guests on board the train. No more long lines waiting to see Santa!

  2. We are adding a unique photo opportunity inside the Ringoes Station waiting room so you can take a fun family photo! Digital copies of your photo will be FREE, and prints will be available for purchase.

  3. With these changes, we have eliminated our separate "Candy Cane Limited" event in favor of being able to offer the North Pole Express program to a wider audience!

Caboose Rentals


Rent our "Little Red Caboose" for your private group of up to 18 guests. One price covers admission for your entire group, no need to purchase individual tickets. Your group will enjoy all the features of North Pole Express, plus a private visit with Santa and Mrs Claus in the caboose! Children under age 3 do not count against your total of 18 guests as long as they sit on a parent's lap. When purchasing your caboose ticket, it will look like you're just purchasing a single Guest ticket - don't worry, 1 ticket covers the entire caboose load of 18 guests!
