  • Was worth a diversion to ride a well kept train and see a lot of interesting stuff at the museum. Kids love it and was a comfortable place for family.
  • We went during Thomas day out. We have never been before it was crowded and hot which wasn't the places fault. A couple things that is frustrating is that it cost us 100 for a 25 min train ride. 5 of us me husband and our 3 children ages 7 5 and 3. We were not directed which box to get in so we waited in line in the sun for 15 minutes, and just got onto the one closest to us. After sitting down look at our ticket and realize that we are not on the right train thanks to someone saying something about seating helped me. This train was nice it was air conditioned large windows and facing seats so our family could sit together. So we have to walk all the way to the last box car and this car was not nice it was barely air conditioned, it looked like a school bus and due to us not getting on the correct train there was not enough seats to sit together or for the kids to be able to see outside well. It was very disappointing. I said something to the person selling the tickets just to next time please direct to which box to go to so that doesn't happen to anyone else. It was difficult for bathrooms, so many people hard to do the activities for the children. The lady who did the magic show was nice and seemed to do a good job but no seating. We bought snow cones for the kids that was the best thing about the whole trip. Hope I can save someone else some money.
  • We Visited for a Day out With Thomas The Train, it was a bigger crowd than expected by us, i would guess between 1500-2000 people showed up during the day. Train rides departed every 40 minutes and the ride itself last for 25 minutes. Plenty of stuff to keep the kids occupied, like a petting zoo, imagination station, Sir Toppem Hat, Story time, Magic show, and even a Scavenger hunt for the kids, we planned on 2 hours and stayed for 5, food and drinks were available for a fairly cheap price, sno-cones and Hot dogs for a $1, hamburgers were $2-$2.50. Parking is scarce unless you want to pay to park. If you want free parking turn at the gas station the take the first street on the right, park near the barn beside the railroad tracks in the grassy area. Come Early stay late and use the Restrooms before boarding the train, as there are no restrooms on board. But most of the cars are Air Conditioned
  • You walk in and say where are the trains! The whole place is a gift shop and a few knick knacks. All the trains are rusty and destroyed and rotting. You cannot go in the trains. There is a sign with a bunch of stuff to do here and it is all a lie. You can pay 5$ to see rusty scraps of metal. There is a barn with trains inside and they say "oh you can go up to the barn but you can't go inside they are working" on what! 10 minutes of my life I am not going to get back.
  • Fun time for the whole family. Recommend buying tickets online.
