All Aboard! The big day has arrived! Your little engineer is spending a Day Out With Thomas. There is so much to do and see. Time to go full steam ahead!
- Ride on Thomas the Tank Engine™
Did you know: Thomas by himself is an engine. Thomas pulling some coaches is a train!
Check the time on your ticket for your train ride. Make sure you locate and enter the boarding area at least 15 minutes before your train departure time.
To add some learning to your day, count the train cars with your child. Take a best guess on how many train cars Thomas will be pulling and see who can get the closest.
Listen for Thomas who says Hello and Goodbye as he arrives and departs the station. Make sure to wave to Thomas and the conductors as they pass you throughout the event.
Don’t forget to accept your Junior Engineer Certificate while enjoying your ride with Thomas.
After your train ride, you can get in line and have your photo taken with Thomas. Photos and frames are also available to purchase at the event through JED Photography
- Meet Sir Topham Hatt, the Director of the Sodor Railway
Sir Topham Hatt is available for photos throughout each event day. He always tries to be On Track and On Time. Schedules may be posted for specific times to Meet Sir Topham Hatt.
As Controller of the Railway, Sir Topham Hatt knows all the engines but we know who his favorite is. Be sure to have your child tell him who their favorite engine is as well.
