The Experience

Once on board, families will indulge in hot chocolate and treats whilst reading along with the classic children’s book, The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. The train travels to the North Pole, where Santa and his helpers board the train and greet all the passengers with each child receiving the first gift of Christmas – a silver sleigh bell. Chefs on board, lead passengers in singing favourite Christmas Carols as the train heads to Spring Village Station. Here passengers depart the train leading into multiple festive activities.
