On Nov. 20 Grapevine Mayor William D. Tate officially pardoned Tom T. Turkey and announced that in honor of the holiday season, more tickets are now available to purchase for the North Pole Express.

The first round of tickets, which initially became available Oct. 1, sold out in record time, the mayor said.

“The tickets for the North Pole Express are hard to come by. In the first 12 minutes we sold 7,000 tickets," Tate said.

Since the tickets sold out so quickly, and in the meantime the city has continuously received requests for more tickets, the mayor said the Grapevine Vintage Railroad was able to add another coach to the North Pole Express. By working closely with TEXRail, the mayor said additional time slots for trains have been added resulting in thousands of additional North Pole Express tickets.

The tickets became available at online at noon on Nov. 20.

"With this offer, those who were disappointed by the inability to purchase tickets will be given a chance to bring joy and happiness to their loved ones once again," Tate said.

The North Pole Express, presented by Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, takes passengers on decorated coaches to Santa's Workshop. Along the way, passengers experience snacks and entertainment from Santa's Elves.
