“Polar Express-Scituate "2012" RIPOFF!!!!?”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Do not go!!!!!! We would of had more fun sitting on our couch watching a movie, but instead we had to tolerate an awful experience at The Polar Express. We are so entirely disappointed. The event was completely disorganized, and just plain cheesy! We deserve our 60 dollars back!!!!!!

“Waste of money”
Reviewed December 5, 2009

I want to let everyone know that the Polar Express Train Ride in Kingston MA was a waste of money and NOT AT ALL what they said it would be. We boarded the train with 3 children. The train started on it's journey to the so called North Pole. The Conductor DID NOT announce "all aboard". All the people and children where talking and no one even realized that the story was being read over the intercom because it was very low and muffled and also there was that loud screach the microphone makes through the whole thing. An elf was walking up and down the isle with the book showing pictures, but no one was paying attention. When the train stopped, we had no idea to look out the window on the opposite side from our seats to see what was suppose to be the North Pole because they did not announce it.. Then about 12 elves, characters in hideous costumes and Mrs Santa and Santa boarded and gave out a little bell to each child. There was no hot cocoa as stated. It was Yahoo chocolate milk and a few animal crackers. To top it off, people walked down the isle at the end to SELL t-shirts, hats, wistles and raindeer antlers. When it was over, a little boy sitting next to us said "where's the Polar Express?" How sad that the boy had no idea along with everyone else on the train, what was going on because the event was so unorganized and not what they described it would be at all. This was the biggest farse and waste of money I ever spent. In other words, everyone boarded the train with no guidence or knowledge of what was going on. I even told the elf that everyone was just talking among themselves and didn't even realize the story was being read because it was not announced and no one could even hear it. I can't even say enough to tell you what a horrible event it was. They should definately discontinue this event.
