What can you expect from A Day Out with Thomas 2018?

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.  You can expect to find  story time and movies (sometimes in a train car!), live musicians playing children’s songs, putt-putt, the Thomas toy tent and more.

This is the fifth 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:
