Important to Know:
Please arrive 30-45 minutes BEFORE Departure. All trains leave on time! Allow extra time for weather and traffic in the canyons (Provo Canyon and Parley’s Canyon).
The Heber Valley Railroad will operate North Pole Express this year at full capacity. Typically all trains and all cars will be full.
All coaches are heated. Toilets are available on board. All passengers occupying a seat must have an Adult or Child ticket. Toddler/lap tickets are required for children 2 and under. Toddlers do not have a seat. Toddlers receive all the North Pole Express amenities (cocoa, cookie, gift from Santa).
All North Pole Express seats are assigned prior to boarding! If you want to try and sit near friends or family who have purchased tickets on separate orders, you must contact the ticket office by phone and make these arrangements at least 5 days prior to your scheduled train. Keep in mind that you are purchasing tickets in a specific train coach. If your family/friends purchase tickets in a different coach we cannot seat you together. We strongly suggest purchasing tickets on a single order for groups who wish to sit together!
Car seats and strollers are not allowed on the train. Please drop them off at the ticket office when you check in, and pick them up there after your return.
Due to the historic nature of our train equipment, we cannot accommodate wheelchairs on the train. Wheelchair passengers will have to be carried on board by your family/group and seated in our regular seats. We will store wheelchairs in the ticket office and return them to your boarding steps on the return.
The Heber Valley Railroad does NOT offer refunds for North Pole Express tickets. If trains or tickets must be cancelled, either by us, or by passengers, we will provide a full credit for future train ride tickets, which will be good for 2 years.
