Your journey begins just like the 2004 Motion Picture where The Polar Express will pick you up to take you to the North Pole. You will get to meet all 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, hopefully dressed in PJs, will experience and fun filled theatrical adventure as you make your way to the North Pole. Throughout your journey you will tangle with the Caribou, see the magic of the Northern Lights and have the story of The Polar Express told you by the singing Chefs. Don’t forget to have a bite of your cookie and authentic Hot Chocolate before arriving at the North Pole to meet Santa Claus.
Santa will join you and, if you are on the nice list, hand you your first gift of Christmas, a Silver sleigh Bell just as in the Motion picture we all love. You will get to speak with Santa and he may even sign your Polar Express Book available to purchase with your tickets.
Once you arrive back at the station your journey is not at it’s end far from it. Next you will get to experience Santa’s Workshop where you can write a letter to Santa, check if you are on the naughty and nice list and buy a little souvenir of your experience. There may even be a little surprise in the workshop to, you will just have to wait and see. The Polar Express Yorkshire at Wensleydale Railway is truly the best Christmas experience in Yorkshire if not the UK.
