THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride Experience - Join Us for a Magical Trip!

  • Posted On: 18 October 2019

Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, now in its fifteenth year, passengers relive the magic of the story as they are whisked away on THE POLAR EXPRESS™. Inspired by the hit movie, this Christmas favorite comes to life as you and your family take a magical trip on THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride!

Once onboard the train, hot chocolate and treats are served by dancing chefs as passengers read along with the classic children’s book. Santa and his helpers greet passengers at the North Pole and then board the train, where each child is given the first gift of Christmas – a silver sleigh bell, just like in the movie! Families are encouraged to wear their pyjamas for the ride and join in with the magic of Christmas!

THE POLAR EXPRESS film is based on Chris Van Allsburg’s classic Christmas picture book, which tells the story of a boy who takes a magical Christmas Eve train ride to the North Pole to receive a special gift from Santa. First published in 1985, The Polar Express became an instant family favourite and has sold more than 12 million copies worldwide.
