The experience starts with a three minute introduction to the story before visitors are escorted to board the Polar Express Experience. They will follow the same journey as the boy from the story, and the train ride is brought to life through sight, sound, smell and motion. When the train arrives, visitors will embark and discover themselves in a winter wonderland.
Sea World has created a North Pole with not only ice and snow, but with a giant Christmas tree, a sleigh loaded with toys and gifts, the fully decorated village from the movie as well as Santa himself.
Visitors not only get to see St. Nick, they also are able to see Beluga whales, polar bears and giant walruses in their natural environment complete with cold arctic temperatures – be sure to bring a jacket!
