Join us for a weekend in Arizona!
Our field trip will start on Friday evening with a train ride on The Polar Express. Put on your jammies and experience the magic of The Polar Express™, the classic children's book by Chris Van Allsburg. The Grand Canyon Railway's Polar Express comes to life when the train departs the Depot in Williams, AZ for a journey through the dark and quiet wilderness for a special visit to the "North Pole." Enjoy hot chocolate and cookies while listening to the magical story. Watch the joy on the children's faces when the train arrives at the North Pole, where Santa Claus and his reindeer are waiting!
Saturday we will continue our adventure at Bearizona. Bearizona is approximately 160 acres. Visitors will drive through more than three miles of Ponderosa Pine Forest viewing North American animals in natural habitats when they visit. More animals are exhibited in Fort Bearizona, a beautiful 20 acre walk-thru area, along winding paths which is more of a "zoo" type setting.
Most vehicles can drive through Bearizona’s well-maintained gravel roads. Each vehicle must be completely enclosed and have operational windows. Visitors will be asked to remove any items that may protrude from their vehicle including bicycles, motorized scooters, luggage, coolers, wheel covers, etc. Bearizona provides a spot at the entrance for you to leave these items during your visit.
