The Wizard Expresses are operating 3 separate round trips on 1st,15th,16th and 22nd August from Kidderminster to Highley and noted today from Traffic Notices that the last departure from highley is now 1900.....great.....don't the people in Comberton Towers think about the volunteers manning the stations,Engine House, train crews, signalmen etc when they plan these timings. Means that staff at Highley station are on duty around 1000 to open up station and now won't leave until around 1915....thanks folks for the extra hour

also tickets are advertised as 100 for family four for each train which seems exorbitant but at same time we are reducing family day rover to 45 for 2 adults and upto 4 children....why should folks pay 100 just to travel on a separate train ??? This is on the assumption that the Engine House is open.for all passengers on these dates....surely it cannot be closed just for Wizard Express passengers....how do the EH staff there on duty sort them out for the attractions there

ah well something else to look forward too....

The Wizard Express

Wands at the ready as you board our VIP Wizard Express - be sure to dress to impress! BOOK BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!

Leave the humdrum world behind as you fly on board our Wizard Express leaving from Platform 92/4. Travelling along the enchanted Severn Valley, you will attend mystical lessons of wizardry at The Engine House. From magical characters to spellbinding activities, the fun and amazement is non-stop for all young budding wizards!

After collecting your wax-sealed invitation to Wizard School at Kidderminster, you and your family will board the Wizard Express; tasty treats await on board, before our Magicians amaze you with unbelievable acts of the unknown right in front of your eyes.

On arrival at Highley, you will be greeted by a figure of GIANT proportions who will escort you to The Engine House, where the Wizard School's finest Scholars will be ready to meet you.

Once inside, can you complete the masterclasses of trickery; Broomstick Training, Wand Making and Greenhouse Herbology? If you're successful, don't forget to pick up your graduation certificate!

And finally, anything from the trolley dears? Cameras at the ready as familiar faces join you for the journey! We've also got some unmissable photo opportunities along the line that'll make all your friends VERY jealous...

Your ticket includes:
    Guaranteed seating on The Wizard Express from Kidderminster to Highley on a table of four - an exclusive VIP service.
    Take part in three magical activities.
    Photo opportunities.
    Four 'Freedom of the Line' tickets to travel on public services before or after the experience to get you back to your starting station.


SELLING OUT QUICKLY! ADVANCE BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL.
