All Aboard! The Polar Express Train is decorated with lights and garland! This luxury, old-fashioned locomotive will chug along at 6.1 km/h (3.8 mph) and pick up commuters from our fenced train station. The friendly, costumed train engineer will collect and punch tickets from passengers. The train is designed to look like an old-fashioned replica steam engine, but it is actually a high-tech amusement park ride. It features sound, moving wheels, smoke, music, microphone, P.A. system and a state of the art anti-collision system.
If the anti-collision sensors detect an object, the train will automatically stop. This system overrides the driver’s command. The sensors are positioned in the locomotive cow catcher and relay information to the PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) that is located in the boiler compartment. The LCD screen on the control panel is used to select one of the 3 pre-set sensitivity parameters. Up to 24 kids, teens and adults can choose a seat in the coal car, caboose or 2 covered passenger cars.
This electric, environmentally-friendly train can be used indoors or outside. Please allow 18’ for our turn around radius. Kids can sit in the engine for photo opportunities. The central kill switch will ensure the train will not move but they can still ring the bell and sound the whistle.
The Polar Express Train will be a delightful main attraction at any event!
