I would NOT RECOMMEND this location to anyone... First off, we were told that this location was the "original" and that the other locations in New Jersey used them as a baseline... They are 100% WRONG. If anything, they should take a lesson from the Whippany location. Here

Response from ccotty, General Manager at Delaware River Railroad Excursions
Responded May 2, 2020
Hello, thanks for the email. I would never contradict a customer BUT your information if factually incorrect. We have operated the polar express for over 12 years. the Whippany location only 2 . Our Polar Express is designed for full family enjoyment. Our entertainment is comprised of 4 world class jugglers ( cirque ) 2 real elves, 8 elf helpers 8 hot chocolate chefs, 4 singing hobos, and Santa. On top of that we have conductors and trainmen all in character. I apologize for the bathrooms. You most likely saw water, not urine, as they are old fashioned pump toilets and we must fill them with a hose in between trips. Our Polar Express is designed for our location and has an amazing following, selling out each year. I am sorry you were not happy with us and I am glad you are happy with the Whippany Location. Ours is family affordable, that one defiantly is not. No matter where you go and what you do, please try your best to enjoy the moment. Life is to short to get so upset. Once again, I am quite sorry you were not happy.

We took the 2pm Polar Express train yesterday and had a wonderful time. We were a large group that included kids from 1-14 yrs, grandparents, siblings, cousins. It was very reminiscent of the movie with the hot chocolate, cookies, entertainment (juggler, singer, etc). The train

This is our fourth year doing a Polar Express ride. We have done it with this rail and one other. This rail definitely puts on a great show, BUT, when I arrived to get my tickets I was given tickets in the "upper" part of the train. When I got on the train, it turns out, my
