Frozen Express

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:15 am on Saturday, repeating until December 8, 2018

$10 – $30

Come join us for an afternoon full of holiday cheer! The Frozen Express will be leaving the Oak Lawn train station on Saturday, December 1 and Saturday, December 8 for a trip to the North Pole (Downtown Chicago’s Union Station) to visit with Santa. Families will check-in at 11:15am in the Oak Lawn train station and everyone will receive hot chocolate & cookies while waiting for the train, which departs promptly at 11:43am. While aboard the train, we will entertain you with live actors. The kids will also get to visit with Mrs. Claus who will join us on the trip to visit her husband at the North Pole. When we reach the North Pole, we will meet up with Santa after each family embarks on an individual journey through the famous Union Station and nearby downtown area. You need only to step outside to view the famous Willis Tower that is located only minutes away from Union Station. There will be a Scavenger Hunt provided for each family to complete, as well as a map of the many locations which are available on Union Station’s mezzanine level to grab lunch. Don’t be late though because the Frozen Express will be leaving promptly at 1:30pm to head back with Santa to Oak Lawn. Santa will provide holiday gift bags to all the good girls and boys when we arrive back at the Oak Lawn train station. Note:  parent or guardian must accompany all children. No refunds for missed train. You are responsible for being on time for the departure from both the Oak Lawn Train Station and Union Station. Children age 2 or younger do not need a ticket (they will need to sit on a parents lap on the train).

Tickets will be sold by lottery system. Limit of 6 tickets per household. You must register during open registration to be entered into the lottery. If you are chosen in the lottery, you will receive a call to come in and pay for your tickets.  Registration will begin July 30th. Non-Resident Registration will begin August 13th.

The lottery drawing will take place Friday, September 21st. Please Note: Registration for the lottery is only taken in person at any of our facilities. There is no online registration for this event.
