The Critter Express is leaving Discovery Space station for the ultimate train experience. Tickets please!
Will you be the train driver or station master? Can you help fuel the engine or will you be a busy commuter off to work?
Read the timetable, buy your ticket and hop on.
Take the controls, shovel coal, load the luggage or simply sit back and gaze out the windows.
The Trains experience also features an interactive model diorama with vintage carriages, landscapes that echo local landmarks and interactive light and sound elements. The iPad-controlled engines allow drivers to control a train’s speed and direction as it travels along the track up mountain and through tunnels.
