ABOUT THE RIDE:
THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride is a 60m live production that happens aboard a slow moving train that leaves out the Brightline Station in Miami. There are scripted scenes, live songs, dancing and a great deal of passenger interaction. There are 3-6 departures per show day. Passengers of the Polar Express arrive for a special moment; a moment when families can all be together to share in an experience based on a movie and book that they love, and one that has a beautiful message. You would be joining a team whose primary goal is to ensure that each passenger gets a fun and professional experience as well as a moving and meaningful one!
