Matching pyjamas and dressing gowns are recommended! Get ready to interact with the conductor and the chefs as the Polar Express Film is brought to life before your eyes, enjoy hot chocolate and a cookie, just like in the movie. Santa and his elf will visit your carriage with the First Gift of Christmas for the little ones, a silver sleigh bell, and keep your Golden Ticket ready to show the Conductor, think of all the amazing pics you can take, this really is a Xmas experience like no other.
Your journey begins just like the 2004 motion picture when THE POLAR EXPRESS™ will pick you up at Leeming Bar station to take you to the North Pole. You will get to meet the characters from the film including the conductor, the singing chefs, the hobo and of course the main man himself Father Christmas.
You and your family will experience a fun filled theatrical adventure as you make your way to the North Pole. As the train arrives with the chefs waving, the conductor invites you and the other passengers to climb aboard shouting “all aboooooard!”. The excitement on the platform is intense, with guests dressed in Pyjamas, you all board the train with the chefs guiding you to your seats.
You leave the station and scenes from the film come to life as dancing chefs and waiters arrive to serve cookies and hot chocolate. Guests, young and old, are invited to share their stories and magical Christmas experiences with characters from the film.
The following day, after breakfast, your coach will escort you to York Christmas Markets to indulge in some festive fare before your journey home.
