The immersive Mail Rail ride will take visitors back in time to see what life was like on the Post Office Underground Railway opening as part of The Postal Museum in 2016. Through audio visual displays visitors will explore a part of hidden London, revealed to the public for the first time in its 100 year history.
BPMA Director Adrian Steel said: “Severn Lamb has extensive experience of projects of similar scale and purpose to Mail Rail, and is at the cutting edge of new technological developments and applications. Having them on board will help ensure we deliver a first class visitor experience and we look forward to working with them as we move forward on this unique journey.”
Severn Lamb has almost 70 years’ experience creating train rides for the leisure industry, largely abroad, with clients including Disneyland Paris and Drayton Manor Theme Park. They will be responsible for the creation of the train and associated ride system for the Mail Rail visitor attraction from design, through construction, to the completion of the project in 2016.
Severn Lamb Managing Director Patrick Severn Lamb said: “We are extremely proud and excited to have been chosen as the train and ride specialist. The chance to design and build a train to allow visitors to experience these practically unknown tunnels under our capital is a unique opportunity. We look forward to being part of the creation of this new and exciting UK attraction.”
