What: One of the most magical activities you can do with any Christmas-loving kid (or adult), especially if they love the Tom Hanks-voiced Polar Express movie. Hop aboard the West Coast Railway Heritage Park's real-life train––with its costumed interpreters (singing hobo included)––and enjoy your cookies and hot chocolate while awaiting your arrival at the North Pole, where Santa greets you alongside rosy-cheeked Mrs Claus. Stick around after your 50-minute train trip: the park is decorated for the season, with twinkling lights and festive train set displays. Be sure to book early, though: this activity is extremely popular.
