Updated 1/2016;

So we went to the day out with Thomas this past summer and I was not impressed. My son who loves Thomas had a great time seeing the train and the set up around it, but even he didn’t go crazy on the train ride. It was not air conditioned at all, and the train itself seemed musty inside. They had cheesy Thomas birthday party city favors hanging from the ceiling and we were less then impressed. The train ride itself was only about 20 minutes and the played the Thomas song so low you couldn’t hear it over the taking crowd onboard.

They gave each child a certificate as a conducter at the end which was cute, but just a piece of letter paper so it ripped easily.

Overall, for the price they charge, I think they should up their game a little. Having the Thomas voice come over the loud speaker to talk to the children and raising the volume on the train for the song to remind us we are riding on the Thomas train would be a simple fix. The best would be an upgrade of the train interior.

Did you go? What did you think? Will you go again?
