Christmas is truly in the air and we can feel it on every mall in the country. Let us feature one mall in Bulacan, SM City Marilao which introduces its POLAR EXPRESS TRAIN which recreates the magical train ride to the North Pole.
November 6 marks the first train ride as the conductor announces "All aboard" and punches children's tickets. Ecstatic crowd then started to board the 27 meter train to experience snow winter fun at the mall. SM City Marilao's Christmas centerpiece is inspired by the 1985 classic book of Chris Van Allsburg and Warner Bros. hit movie, The Polar Express.
“We wanted children and adults alike to believe in the magic of Christmas” said Mall Manager Bernadette D. Velasco. “This led us to the idea of recreating the family favorite Polar Express Train with Ice Attraction. With this, we hope that families will enjoy and find Christmas in SM City Marilao” Ms. Velasco added.
The Polar Express Train contains a SNOW PLAYGROUND shipped from Italy. It is a 12 x 4 meter or 48 square meter mobile ice attraction that allows guests to experience winter activities such as snowball making and snowman building. Because SNOW PLAYGROUND uses highly sophisticated snow-making machine that freezes potable water for as low as -10 to -15 degrees Celsius while rapidly turning frozen water into small ice crystals or snowflakes, it allows customers to interact with simulated snow at below 0 to 3 degree Celsius temperature.
SM City Marilao's attraction targets children and adult alikes. What more can you expect as it presents a playground filled with colorful pails, shovels and toys to create fun shapes in the snow. Well, perhaps you can even create a snowman out of it.
It as an exciting sight as Santa Claus signaled the opening of Snow Playground and greeted everyone. Ehla Mae Nympha, The Voice Kids Champion were also there and sung Christmas Carols for everyone.
