Preschoolers will get the thrill of their lives when Thomas the Tank Engine™ steams across the country this year. When Thomas arrives at Calera for the Day Out with Thomas™: The Thrill of the Ride Tour 2014, he will not only take his fans for a ride, but also talk to them for the very first time on the tour! The event, which takes place March 28-30 and April 5-6, 2014, will be hosted by The Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum and presented by HIT Entertainment and sponsored by MEGA Brands, a leading toy company, and all inclusive Hard Rock Hotels.
Day Out with Thomas: The Thrill of the Ride Tour 2014 is a 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. The tour, now in its 19th year, will make stops in 42 U.S. cities and is expected to welcome nearly one million passengers in 2014. For two back-to-back weekends, little engineers and their families are invited to 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. The Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum will also offer a Jumpstation, Bubble Station, Sandbox, Maze, Putt-Putt Golf, and live music.
Thomas the Tank Engine rides depart every 45 minutes, rain or shine. Departure times begin at 9:00 am through 4:30 pm on Saturdays and 9:45 am through 3:45 pm on Friday and Sundays. Tickets for the Day Out With Thomas: The Thrill of the Ride Tour 2014 are $21 for ages two and up.
It’s no secret we love Thomas and A Day Out With Thomas is one of our favorite yearly events! Bug is 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 at Calera for the second time. You can read more about our Day out With Thomas on the 2013 Go Go Thomas Tour here.
