BRANSON, Mo. — All aboard the Polar Express at the Branson Scenic railway!

Now in it's 10th year, the Polar Express experience continues to offer guests a train ride that is a simulation of the film.

Once you board the train and leave the depot, they read the story of the Polar Express. The chefs then do the dance just like the one in the movie, which comes with hot chocolate and cookies.

The train makes a stop to pick up Santa Claus, who then interacts with guests along the way, singing holiday songs and handing out the first gift of Christmas.

A child's coach seat is $36. For adults it's $46 dollars.

Prices go up depending on the seats you choose.

The train rides are offered until Dec. 23 and range in start times from 3 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.

All passengers get hot chocolate, cookies and a souvenir mug.
