The Polar Express
"Inspired by the run-away hit movie produced by Warner Bros. Entertainment and the award winning book by Chris Van Allsburg, this very special train ride from the USA returns to the UK in 2015. Join us in Weardale and make it your new annual Christmas family tradition. The Polar Express train ride makes a mystical round-trip journey to the North Pole. The characters of the story come to life with the conductor punching away at the golden tickets, chefs dancing and delivering hot chocolate and cookies, and the doubting hobo wandering through the train. The story is read aloud and the music from the movie plays for all the children to sing along."
