Do you believe in Magic?
The North Pole Express Train is coming to the Wellington Region this December!
Prepare to be surrounded by the magic and wonder of the Christmas season! Families will love the magical train ride to Santa's Railway Station at the North Pole in one of the specially decorated carriages, you’ll meet Santa, sing, and celebrate this special time of year.
Set to the sounds of carols passengers are invited to wear their pajamas and join us to be whisked away on the North Pole Express and delight in the magic of Christmas as the train departs for a two hour long round-trip journey to the North Pole.
On Arrival at the North Pole Express Station.
As you and your family take in the festive decorations at The North Pole Express Train Station in Paraparaumu, you can almost hear the faint sound of sleigh bells in the distance and the fun begins.
From the distance, to much excitement your steam hauled North Pole Express arrives, then the train Conductor invites you and the other passengers to climb aboard shouting “All aboard!”
Once onboard, passengers are served hot chocolate, a delicious cookie and sweet treats by our North Pole Express Chefs and everyone receives a souvenir mug. During the first leg of the journey to the North Pole wide-eyed children are invited to engage wonderful characters who are eager to hear what makes the Christmas season special to them.
You’ll meet the conductor and uncover the secret of your special golden North Pole Express Ticket, and while the Cocoa is warm in your belly’s, passengers are read a Christmas story and join in the fun singing and dancing with elves and our chefs.
