Whether you start your journey in Tunbridge Wells or Wallingford, your special journey will begin in a similar way to the classic film, with THE POLAR EXPRESS™ arriving your chosen station so that you can begin your incredible adventure to the North Pole. Whilst on your journey, you will meet many iconic characters from the 2004 blockbuster film, including the Conductor, chefs who sing and dance, a mysterious ghostly figure, and of course Santa Claus. Every member of your family, dressed in their favourite pyjamas just like the film, will experience an extraordinary theatrical production on board a train as you steam towards the North Pole. Further along your journey, you could encounter some caribou blocking the track, or a treacherous river – who knows what magic you may encounter? During your journey, you’ll also have the opportunity to listen to the beautiful THE POLAR EXPRESS™ story read to you by the Chefs.
Served with a yummy cookie and tasty hot chocolate, you’ll be kept toasty warm as the train stops at the North Pole, where Santa Claus is awaiting your arrival. Are you on his Nice list? If so, marvel as you are handed a shiny silver sleigh bell, to take home and hang on your Christmas tree as a reminder of your magical trip. Your whole family will get a chance to meet Santa, have your photo taken and maybe even get your book (copies available with your Polar Express tickets) signed!
As you pull back into your chosen London area station, your adventure still isn’t over. Santa’s workshop is there to explore, where you can write him a letter, see who’s on the Naughty list in your family, and visit the gift shop to take home souvenirs. Whichever venue you choose, THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride will be a wonderful Christmas adventure.
“With 2 new railways in the London Area joining our Polar Express family, there’s never been a better time to climb aboard THE POLAR EXPRESS™. We’ve successfully run the event in other areas of the UK and we know that visitors to both Cholsey and Wallingford and Spa Valley Railways will delight in this Christmas spectacle on board a steam train. Don’t miss out – book your Polar Express tickets today!” – Mark Haynes, Digital Marketing & Ecommerce Manager PNP Events Ltd.
