Leading attraction, 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 will be on sale from 3rd August 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. 

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 also 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.”
