What you can expect on the immersive excursion 

Bryson City is a small town in Western North Carolina 

Right next door to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park 

It's home to the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad train ride for most of the year 

But in the winter months, it becomes something more magical 

Based on the classic children's book, the Polar Express celebrates the wonder of Christmas 

Complete with a dancing crew that serves hot chocolate and even a visit with Santa 

The real train excursion lasts for about an hour and 15 minutes 

See what it's like to ride on the iconic train!
