Go on an extraordinary adventure in the Wild Adventure Zone with “The Polar Express 4-D Experience” at the 4-D Theater. The 14-minute film featuring Tom Hanks tells the tale of a doubting young boy who takes a train ride to the North Pole and discovers that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe.
