“This was the most magical and amazing experience we have had so far at Christmas. The organisation of the entire thing, the theatrics, all of the small details on the lead up to and throughout the journey is absolutely astounding and the children and adults benefited from everything on offer. An actually goosebumps event that I am so glad we all got to experience. 5 stars and more!!!!” – Donya V, 2023 Guest 

All Aboard!

“ALL ABOARD!” calls the conductor, and the chefs help you on board The Polar Express. As you make your way to your seats, the show is about to begin. The train pulls away from the platform and you’ll be treated to some familiar songs from the film, performed for you by our very talented chefs and maybe even the Conductor himself. 

Before your very eyes, the story of the Polar Express will come to life. Beloved characters from the story including the chefs, Conductor and maybe even the ghost on the train will draw you ever deeper into the story of the Polar Express. As the train steams along it’s journey, everyone will be served hot chocolate and a tasty cookie just like in the film.

“Absolutely magical experience. So very well organised and staff couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful. Everything from the moment we arrived was just full of Christmas magic” – Jennie H, 2023 Guest 

Before you know it, our very special guest will join you on board your train ride. Santa Claus himself will appear right there in your carriage! He will say hello to your children and provide them with the First Gift of Christmas, a beautiful shiny silver sleigh bell. His elf helper will make sure the grownups get their bell. Whilst Santa makes his way through the carriage, you’ll hear the familiar cry of ‘tickets, please!’ as the Conductor checks everyone’s Golden Tickets.
