All Aboard The Polar Express!

Based on the popular Christmas film, The Polar Express Train Ride will give families the ultimate Christmas experience as they are transported to the North Pole.

This has now expired.

With the first three days already sold out at Weardale, this hour long round trip is one that children will not forget.

During the magical experience, The Polar Express story is read aloud and is accompanied by music from the hit film so that all those aboard can sing along to. Guest will also get their very own golden ticket which will be punched by the conductor who is also on the hunt for an elusive hobo, who has rumoured to have boarded the train without a ticket – just like in the film!

Not only that but there is chefs dancing and delivering hot chocolate and cookies – so now you can go ahead and sing the hit song “Hot Hot Hot Chocolate” but make sure you never ever let it cool!

When arriving at the North Pole Santa and his elves will be waiting amongst the sparkling lights of the city and will climb aboard to give a classic silver bell to all the believing boys and girls.

Tickets start at £18 for children and £22 for an adult, so are you coming?
