Prepare to be surrounded by the magic and wonder of the Christmas season!
Families will love the magical train ride in one of our specially decorated carriages. You’ll meet Santa, sing, and celebrate this special time of year.
Set to the sounds of carols passengers are invited to join us to be whisked away on the North Pole Express. Delight in the magic of Christmas as the train departs for a journey to collect Santa who has been magically transported to an undisclosed location along the tracks.
As you and your family arrive, you can almost hear the faint sound of sleigh bells in the distance and the fun begins.
From the distance, to much excitement the North Pole Express arrives, then the train Conductors invite you and the other passengers to climb aboard shouting “All aboard!”.
Once onboard, passengers enjoy their iced chocolate from their Souvenir Mug, a delicious cookie and are also served sweet treats by our North Pole Express Hosts. During the first leg of the journey wide-eyed children of all ages are invited to engage with characters who are eager to hear what makes the Christmas season special to them.
You’ll meet the conductor, and join in the fun singing and dancing with our carriage hosts and other characters.
Upon arrival at our secret meeting spot, keep your eyes peeled for Santa’s elves on the platform, and the jolly man himself!
After we have the “Big Man” safely on the train it departs again and you soon see that the adventure isn’t over! Along the journey Santa appears in your carriage to present each passenger with a souvenir ornament. During the trip, characters in each carriage lead passengers in carolling and entertainment as the train makes its way back home.
