CVSR brings new Christmas Train, North Pole Adventure to the Cuyahoga Valley

 Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad (CVSR) announced today their new holiday program, North Pole Adventure™, presented by Meijer and b.a. Sweetie Candy Company. The North Pole Adventure™ will be delivering holiday magic November 5 – December 19, 2021.

For the last 27 years, CVSR has hosted an annual Christmas train ride during the holiday season. The first Christmas train ride began in 1992 as the Polar Bear Unlimited and evolved into a variety of programs over the years, including the most recent THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride.

“It was time for a change,” said CVSR President and CEO Joe Mazur. “Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we had to cancel our Christmas Train last year. After several years of the same program, the cancelation last year, and listening to feedback from our community, we felt it was the right time to introduce North Pole Adventure™.”

This year, the North Pole Adventure™ program will help guests deliver holiday magic as they depart for an extraordinary journey to the North Pole. While on their way, guests will write their letter to Santa and hand-deliver it to the North Pole’s very own Postmaster.

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

In addition to writing and delivering letters to Santa, guests can expect traditional holiday festivities, including enjoying hot cocoa and cookies, singing Christmas carols, interacting with Santa’s elves and enjoy a special visit from Santa.

“We listened to the feedback from our guests who have ridden with us for our Christmas Train in past years,” Mazur said. “We took into consideration their feedback every step of the way – this program is for them.”

Tickets for North Pole Adventure™ go on sale to CVSR Members September 8 at 9 a.m. For those who want to become members for early access, membership requests must be submitted by September 6 by 4 p.m. Tickets for the public go on sale October 5 at 9 a.m. For more information on North Pole Adventure™, please visit
