This month through December, relive the magic of your favorite Christmas tale with an interactive journey like no other. The Polar Express train ride at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden offers kids and grownups alike a chance to ride a festive old-fashioned railcar through a snowy night, meet Santa and Billy, sip hot chocolate served by whimsical waiters, and arrive at the North Pole to witness the presentation of the first gift of Christmas. At the end of the show, every lucky rider gets his or her own silver bell to take home—just remember to check your pockets for holes! The experience runs November 9-10, 13-17, 20-24, and 29-30, and December 1, 4-8, 11-15, and 17-23. Tickets, $60-$120.
