Do you want to go to San Diego during Comic-Con but don’t want to deal with hotels and traffic? Do you want to have a leisurely trip with food and drinks while hanging out with celebrities? Then check out the launch of The Cosplay Train Express, the world’s first all immersive pop culture rail experience, aimed at fans looking for that ultimate adventure.
As part of an annual trek from Los Angeles to San Diego to celebrate the iconic Granddaddy of comic book conventions, this first-of-its-kind annual rail adventure will offer a limited number of fans the unique opportunity to engage with global celebrities, past and present, while creating the ultimate cosplay future universe along the way.
William Kircher, who portrayed Bifur in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, will be on board to socialize with fans and lead the 4-day celebration as event emcee. “I am excited to be the host of the Cosplay Train Express,” says William Kircher.
“When I was told that this was the first annual adventure, I just knew that my participation would be something that cosplay and pop culture fans would enjoy. It should be a lot of fun.” Fan favorites from other movie and TV franchises will also join the rail experience, including Adam West, Julie Newmar, and Burt Ward, with more names from the guest list to be released in the coming weeks.
The Cosplay Train Express includes round trip rail fare, one day in San Diego during Comic-Con International, all-inclusive food and beverage, and a 21+ environment throughout the train, with specialty cocktails and innovative party programming that brings stars and fans together in smaller, more extraordinary settings.
The Cosplay Train Express departs daily from Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, July 21-24, 2016. Quintessential themes will be recreated on board while additional events will be built around each rail car and their defining traits. Fans can choose their adventure from four immersive experiences:
The Cosplay Train Express will give “railers” the chance to become part of the Cosplay Universe throughout their adventure. Staffed by a passionate crew and professional cosplayers dressed in distinctive costumes, each rail car on the private carriages will pay homage to a favorite universe with parties and trivia competitions inspired by pivotal moments in pop culture history.
