NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. WINNERS WILL BE SELECTED AT RANDOM. WINNING A LOTTERY WILL QUALIFY THE ENTRANT TO PURCHASE THE NUMBER OF TICKETS REQUESTED, AT THE PRICE DESIGNATED BY THE SHOW FOR THE LOTTERY ENTERED.  PRIZE HAS NO CASH VALUE.

SPONSOR

THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride Ticket Lottery (the “Lottery”) is sponsored by Midland Railway, PO Box 5, Baldwin City, KS 66006 (“Sponsor”).

ELIGIBILITY

Open only to persons 18 years or older. Employees, officers, directors and agents (and their immediate family members and household members regardless of where they live) of the Sponsor, or any of its divisions, affiliates, or subsidiaries, are not eligible to participate in the Lottery. Void where prohibited. Federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.

ENTRY

Entrants may enter a Lottery through the website: MidlandRailway.org (the “Lottery Website”).

An entrant may enter the Lottery for multiple participating shows, however they may only be selected as a winner for one (1) Lottery for matinee performances and (1) Lottery for evening performances per day.

As an example, a Lottery entrant may enter two participating Lotteries that are scheduled at 2PM, however they may only win one of the Lotteries entered. If a Lottery entrant enters Lotteries scheduled for 2PM and 8PM, they may be qualified to win both. Lottery entrants may enter a Lottery based on the timing established and advertised by that individual Lottery. All times indicated are local venue times. Entry times are subject to change on a daily basis without notice.

All entrants will be required to provide entrant’s first name, entrant’s last name, entrant’s e-mail address, entrant’s zip code, entrant’s birthdate, cell phone number, and the number of tickets requested.  Entrant’s may be asked to complete a CAPTCHA when entering a Lottery.

There is a limit of one entry per person per performance for any and all methods of entry.  For example, if Entrant enters a Lottery via an App the Entrant may not enter the same Lottery via the website.  The use of automated or programmed methods of entry is prohibited. Duplicated entries for a Lottery will be disqualified, and entrants may be prohibited from entering future lotteries. Entry into a Lottery is not complete until the entrant has received an official confirmation displayed on the device used to enter the Lottery or via e-mail that their Entry has been received or via a notification on an App. Lottery availability and number of tickets per Lottery may vary and are subject to change.

The total number of tickets available for purchase through any Lottery for each Performance may vary, but in no event shall there be fewer than two (2) tickets available for purchase via each Lottery (the “Minimum”). The number of tickets to be sold through a Lottery for each Performance in excess of such Minimum (and the number of winning entries to be selected) shall be at the sole discretion of the Sponsor. Each winner shall receive the ability to purchase the number of tickets they have requested for that Lottery, subject to the ticket limits established by that Lottery at the time of entry. The Winner may only purchase the number of tickets they have requested in their Lottery entry.

WINNER

Winners will be selected at random for a Lottery once the entry period for that Lottery has closed. Entrants will be notified via e-mail for web entries if they have been selected as a Winner for a Lottery. The Sponsor will use best efforts to ensure timely delivery of the e-mail.  The Sponsor does not have an obligation to attempt to contact an entrant more than once to inform them if they have or have not been selected as a Winner of a Lottery. Notification for entrants who entered on an App will need to refer to the terms and conditions of the App for details on how notifications will be distributed. Sponsor bears no responsibility for the notification (or lack thereof) for entrants who entered a Lottery via an App.

Each drawing will be conducted by the Sponsor, whose decision is final and binding on all aspects of each Lottery. Failure of a potential Prize winner to respond as referred to above may result in disqualification and the selection of another winning entrant from among all eligible entries received for the applicable Lottery.

Winners will be entitled to purchase the number of tickets requested for the Lottery for which they were selected as a Winner at the price per ticket established plus handling fees (if any) as advertised at the time of entry (“the Prize”). After a Winner has been notified they will have a limited amount of time to purchase tickets via instructions in the confirmation emailed to them or the notification presented in the App. Tickets not purchased by the designated payment deadline may be offered to another entrant or may be sold to the general public at prevailing regular prices. A valid, un-expired photo ID matching the name on the Lottery entry must be presented at the Box Office to claim tickets. Photocopies of IDs will not be accepted.

PRIZE

The Prize does not have any monetary value, and is non-assignable, non-transferable and may not be substituted or redeemed for cash.  All sales are final – no refunds or exchanges. Lottery seating is assigned at the discretion of the box office and may be located in any car in the train consist.  When purchasing two tickets, every effort is made to seat the tickets together, however, it is possible that two tickets will not be contiguous based upon availability.  All persons entering the venue, regardless of age, must have a ticket.  Additional venue restrictions and conditions may apply.

PRIVACY POLICY

Lottery Entrants consent and agree to the terms of the Midland Railway Privacy Policy and to the collection, use and storage of Entrant’s information by Midland Railway. From time to time, the Policy may change. The date of any revision will always be published at the top of the Policy. Entrants are responsible for regularly reviewing this Privacy Policy. Entrant’s continued use of the Lottery following the posting of a changed Privacy Policy indicates Entrant’s acceptance of the changes. Unless provided with specific notice, no changes to the Privacy Policy will apply retroactively.
