Characters you know and love

Ready to go? “ALL ABOARD!” calls the conductor, and the chefs help you on board. As you make your way to your seats, the show is about to begin. The train pulls away from the platform and you’ll be treated to some familiar songs from the film, performed for you by our very talented chefs and maybe even the Conductor himself. 

As we leave the platform before your very eyes, the story of the Polar Express will come to life. Beloved characters from the story including the chefs, Conductor and maybe even the ghost on the train will draw you ever deeper into the story of the Polar Express Train Ride.

As the train continues along it’s journey, everyone will be served hot chocolate and a tasty treat. Now is the time to make magical memories on board The Polar Express. Don’t forget to take out your phone camera and snap photos and videos during this magical experience.

Before you know it, you hear a bump on the roof of the carriage, what could this be? Do you hear the jingle of sleigh bells? Look over to the entrance of the carriage, its our special guest! Mr C, often referred to as Santa Claus, will appear right there in your carriage!
