The Polar Express Experience

Holiday guests can take an exciting trip to the North Pole aboard The Polar Express Experience. SeaWorld's Wild Arctic is transformed into the North Pole... and getting there is half the fun! The Polar Express Experience is based on the film from Warner Bros. Pictures and Shangri-La Entertainment, inspired by the beloved children's book by Chris Van Allsburg about a doubting young boy who embarks on a journey of self-discovery during an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole on Christmas Eve.

The Polar Express Experience immerses passengers on a multi-sensory journey of special lighting, scent, sound and motion effects in classic scenes recreated from the movie. Upon arrival at the North Pole, discover a winter wonderland of holiday cheer and amazing animal encounters.
