I cannot say enough how much fun we all had!! Not only were we able to go on a 45 minute train ride on Thomas the train, but there were tons of other activities, games, hands on activities, and more.

During the ride there are 2 times that Thomas turns around and you can get a really nice picture of the front of the train in action. The conductors even warn you ahead of time that they are coming and what way to look out of the train.

During the ride you pass old trains and boxcars, go over bridges, see streams, fairs, and so many other fun things!

The ride on Thomas was really just a small portion of the fun that A Day Out With Thomas had available to kids. They also have a big old town that the kids could explore, inside the town they had broom makers, blacksmiths, printing press, opera house, and so many other amazing things for the kids to learn.  In each of the buildings they had people inside that would explain how they make each of the things or put on performances.

  1. We attended this event too, and I laughed that the kids (and my husband) fell asleep on the right. Such a fun event. I had a blast, and can’t thank you enough again for hosting a giveaway for the tickets. 🙂

    • Rosey,
      I’m glad that you had a great time with your family! We have kiddos fall asleep on the train every year to, it’s so calming. Thank you for entering the giveaway. I hope you have a great week!
