The Day Out With Thomas®: The GO GO Thomas Tour 2013, now in its 18th year, kicks off in early March and will stop in over 45 cities in North America this year. The fun-filled event that provides children of all ages the opportunity to climb aboard and take a ride with Thomas as well as participate in Thomas & Friends themed activities. At the respective railroad, fans take a 25 minute ride on their favorite engine, meet Sir Topham Hatt®, Controller of the Railway and enjoy a day of Thomas & Friends themed activities including arts & crafts, storytelling and more.
It’s no secret we love Thomas and A Day Out With Thomas is one of our favorite yearly events! Bug is 4.5 this year, and I don’t know how many more trips to see Thomas we have left, because I know he will eventually grow out of it. So I’m going to enjoy it while I can too!
Last year we saw him in Silverhill, AL (close to Gulf Shores) as part of our beach trip. You can read all about our Thomas adventure at Wales West Light Railway in Silverhill here. If you want to find Thomas at a location near you, check the Day out with Thomas schedule here. You can save $2 per ticket with code DOWTFB – good for every stop for the entire duration of the tour.
