NYMR Light Spectacular

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway, has unveiled its latest visitor experience, the Light Spectacular, an October half-term audio and visual sensory event for passengers on board the popular heritage railway.

Tickets for the Light Spectacular are currently on sale and are £25 per person. Entry will include an hour-long illuminated journey from Pickering to Levisham Station, with carriages adorned with 17,000 LEDs.

The North Yorkshire Moors website says "Marvel at our heritage carriages, decorated with thousands of lights, before departing from Pickering Station for an awe-inspiring journey. Let Voice Over Man, from the X-Factor and Britain's Got Talent, entertain you on your journey alongside a DJ-Mix of music that will get you in the mood for a party the whole family will enjoy.

Each passenger will be given their own interactive LED wristband which is synchronised to the music and passengers become part of the show"

From the moment passengers enter the platform, spot the train and then climb, on board they’ll be fully immersed in colour, light and sound. This one-of-a-kind experience will depart from Pickering Station every evening from the 23rd to 31st October at 6PM and 7.45 PM.

Tickets feature a flashing wristband which passengers wear for the journey and is synchronised with the on-board narration and a mix of music to help get the whole family in the party spirit, with famous hits from the 60s right up to present day tunes.

Specially discounted rates for groups of 20 people or more are available, and can be booked via the NYMR Customer Service team.

Chris Price, NYMR General Manager, said: “This is an experience you’re not going to want to miss out on! The team has been working really hard behind the scenes collaborating with an immersive sensory company to create a unique journey for passengers. 
We can’t wait to witness the first Light Spectacular express depart from Pickering Station - it will be something very special.”
