Battle he who must not be trained!
It’s the first day of term at the Wizard Academy, and a sect of sinister sorcerers have made off with one of the school’s most important magical artefacts. Join an enchanting cast of characters on a quest to get it back, and learn all of the skills to be an award-winning witch or wizard along the way!
This interactive quest will see you and your family join colourful and quirky costumed characters on a steam train ride, during which you will take part in a host of entertaining activities to complete the story.
- One return trip from Bury to Rawtenstall hauled by a magical heritage steam train
- A two hour trip with some of the East Lancashire Railway's wackiest wizards
- Wizard themed activities
- Plenty of photo opportunities
Food and drink will be available to purchase from our café on Platform 3/4 at Bury Bolton Street Station and from our on-train buffet.
