The Polar Express is a train ride is based on the hit Warner Brothers' film of the same name. It has only been available in the US until now. Setting off from Okehampton railway station, the Polar Express train 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 children's 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.
