San Diego Comic Con is coming back at the end of July and fans of all ages, shapes and sizes are looking for ways to get to this amazing convention. To get there you could fly in a plane or drive but why use these boring methods when instead you can try something new and exciting. Angry Goat Productions have come up with The Cosplay Train Express which is a new way to travel to San Diego Comic Con in style. It will be the world’s first all immersive pop culture rail experience, aimed at fans who are looking for that ultimate adventure.
The Cosplay Train Express 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 the iconic dwarf “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. More names will be added to the guest list 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. There will also be specialty cocktails and innovative party programming that brings stars and fans together in smaller, more extraordinary settings. The Cosplay Train Express departs daily from Los Angeles July 21-24, 2016. Fans will be able to choose their adventure from four immersive experiences:
“Pack your wand and enter our magical universe, where you can act out your dreams of being a student wizard on board our fairytale mystical train. Surrounded by like-minded people, your adventure is not only all-inclusive, it’s all-immersive, and provides you with memories that will last a lifetime.”
“You’re a former galactic war veteran who has just received commission of a brand new ship, now it’s critical that you select a crew from the dozens of fellow “Railers’ on board the Cosplay Train Express. Your mission is to select the best team possible to defend the universe from a hostile alien nation.”
“Imagine there’s a place where you can be yourself, or better yet your cosplay alter-ego, rolling down the coast in your own private nightclub. Can you see it? The music stops, and you’re greeted by your host “The Hobbit” actor William Kircher. After a few selfies to share with your own universe, you’re then introduced to a VIP Guest who shares intimate behind the scenes stories from some of your favorite TV Shows and Movie franchises, all in an intimate Q&A setting. Is this just a dream? Not at all fellow Railer (Cosplay Train Citizen), welcome to TRAXX Celebrity Lounge on board the Cosplay Train Express. You can now check this off of your bucket list!”

Learn what it takes to be a true superhero by testing your abilities in games of skill and memory, and maybe even gain an extra superpower or two along the way! You may have heard the rumors from friends and family, or maybe even whispers in the quiet corners of fan conventions around the globe… They are all saying the same thing.”
The Cosplay Train Express will give “railers” the chance to become part of the Cosplay Universe throughout their adventure.
