CVSR Rebrands Christmas Trains as North Pole Adventure

The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad this week announced it has rebranded its holiday season trains as the North Pole Adventure™.

In past year the trains operated under license as The Polar Express. This year’s trips are scheduled to operate between Nov. 5 and Dec. 18.

The CVSR has operated Christmas-themed train rides for the past 27 years, although most trips in 2020 were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It was time for a change,” CVSR President and CEO Joe Mazur in a statement. “After several years of the same program, the cancellation last year, and listening to feedback from our community, we felt it was the right time to introduce North Pole Adventure.”

Like the Polar Express trips, the North Pole Adventure trips will feature a journey to the North Pole with passengers writing letters to Santa Claus to be hand-delivered the North Pole’s postmaster.

“In 2019, we accepted letters to Santa and received an overwhelming response from the community,” Mazur said. “The children enjoyed it and we knew they wanted the opportunity to deliver letters to Santa – now they can.”

Other activities aboard the train will include enjoying hot cocoa and cookies, singing Christmas carols, interacting with Santa’s elves and a visit from Santa.

Tickets for North Pole Adventure trips will go on sale to CVSR members on Sept. 8 at 9 a.m.

For those who want to become members for early access, membership requests must be submitted by Sept. 6 by 4 p.m.

Public ticket sales will begin on Oct. 5 at 9 a.m. For more information on North Pole Adventure, visit
