The Thomas Celebration Tour is celebrating one thing in particular: friendship. Families of all sizes are encouraged to come aboard and enjoy an entertaining and educational time. The event offers the unique chance to take a ride with the classic train engine, as well as a variety of Thomas & Friends themed activities. Some of the activities include storytelling, video viewing, and an Imagination Station with arts and crafts and more. In addition to the entertaining activities, guests will have the chance to meet Sir Topham Hatt, the head of the Railway on the Island of Sodor. Train enthusiasts and aspiring engineers alike are sure to jump at these exceptional opportunities!
Based on the classic stories of The Railway Series, Thomas and his friends have been welcomed in homes and hearts for more than 65 years. The first stories were written by Reverend W. Awdry for his son as a way to share his passion for trains. The stories of Thomas and his friends have continued to grow and inspire people all over. The valuable life lessons of friendship, exploration and cooperation have been used to teach children of all ages for many decades.
Due to the popularity of the event, it is recommended that tickets be purchased ahead of time, online or by calling 866.468.7630.
