Polar Express train ride comes to Santa Cruz

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. -- The Polar Express-themed ride has come to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. The ride comes complete Santa sightings, caroling elves, dancing chefs, hot cocoa and more.

The conductors call "All aboard" and punch children's golden tickets as the train makes its way to the North Pole. Each guest will hear the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack as the story reading begins and the book's characters come to life.
