The Waterloo Central Railway Village Station in St. Jacobs hosts some wonderful Holiday rides. Walking towards the venue, you could see the glowing lights from the Christmas decor.
Bells could be heard jingling in the darkness of the evening sky. One of the smiling attendees from the previous Polar Express train ride said, “Enjoy your time, you will love it, it was so amazing!”
Entering the warmth of the building, there were Children dressed in pajamas clutching hands with their parents some were browsing the Polar express memorabilia and perhaps wondering what the night would entail.
The lights dimmed, smoke began to fill the room and our evening at the Polar Express began as actors began to tell the story of the popular Christmas book written by Chris Van Allsburg.
Entering train C, there were festive Christmas lights decorating the interior of the 1950’s old style train. We were met with the actors in costume greeting us all with smiles as we found our seating arrangements.
The conductor said, “All Aboard, we are embarking on a trip to the North Pole, please have your tickets ready!”
Rolling out of the station we all knew we were in for a special evening as the conductor began to inspect the golden tickets, walking up and down the aisle performing his golden ticket duties.
Attendees can enjoy a 1 hour train ride to the North Pole in the comfort of cozy seating while The Polar Express is read, hot chocolate and treats are served, carols are sang and everyone receives a gift and visit from SANTA.
The acting was really well done along with all of the details taken in to account to make the ride so memorable for Children of all of all ages.
Tickets are limited so be sure to check out the website and pre book your ride, Waterloo Central Railway, https://waterloocentralrailway.com/the-polar-express-train-ride/.
One of the last impressions I heard on the loudspeaker was, “What matter’s most is not where you are going, but that you got on!”
