Specific activities vary from venue to venue. But do expect to make a day of it! A Day out with Thomas is more than just a train ride! We usually spend 3 to 4 hours at the DOWT events.
Besides the train ride and meeting Sir Topham Hatt, all DOWT events have the Imagination Station (tent full of Thomas toys the kids get to play with! As well as coloring and activity sheets and FREE Thomas & Friends temporary tattoos), story telling and video viewing station, and the gift shop tent.
We got to go to DOWT at Tennessee Valley Railroad for the first time last year. It was a blast! We had an incredible time as you can see from all these great pictures! DOWT is truly an all day family-fun event!
Here are the great things you can expect to see in addition to Thomas! (Activity availability may vary by venue!)
- Petting Zoo
- Putt Putt Golf
- Food Trucks
- Additional Train Rides on the Missionary Ridge Local (additional cost – discounted tickets with your Thomas train ride ticket stub)
- Bounce House
- Balloon Animals
- Entertainers (last year Jaden Maxwell, professional illusionist, stunned us with his card tricks!)
This is the fourth year that Thomas is able to TALK to his friends at A Day Out With Thomas! It’s such a wonderful addition that the kids won’t forget!
Here’s a video of Thomas talking as he’s pulling into the station at Tennessee Valley Railroad in 2016!
There was an excited Thomas fan behind me so it’s hard to hear Thomas talking over the kid yelling “Hi Thomas!” But you can see more videos from Day Out with Thomas on my YouTube channel here and see him talking at previous events.
