  • We had a blast at the Day with Thomas event. We got tickets for 9:00 AM which meant great parking situation and short lines. This event is so well run. There is a crew of Adventure Scouts and ROTC students there to help at every station and wherever you went. They had a nursing/baby changing station which I thought was such a great touch for mothers. We loved the trains and the picture stations, however the event would have been fun even without the train rides! I highly recommend this anyone who has children who enjoy Thomas the Train. It was a great family activity.
  • Was truly impressed with the collection of trains they had. So much to see and this was a great time to go with Santa's Workshop. Only down fall was that we were told the area with the toy train area that we were able to "board" and look around on the cars. Which I thought was neat at first. Only to be yelled at by a gentleman saying EVERYTHING was off limits and that even the area was now closed because it was "closed for repairs". But later saw people go in said closed area. If we weren't supposed to be able to look on the inside then all employees must be in unison of this information. The gentleman who also said the "toy" car area was close could've been less rude and also put a sign up saying area was closed. Other than that my child and I had a good time.
  • We went to see Thomas the train and we had so much fun! Wish we knew it was like a carnival so we could go early! Both my 5 year old and my toddler enjoyed the event. We will definitely come back. Everyone at the event was super friendly!
  • Other than Santa's Workshop train ride, and another tram ride around the park nothing much to see. Staff (especially the train conductor) was really nice. Kids had lot of stuff to do at the Workshop. Hot cocoa and free popcorn. Will go back to see Thomas.
  • Interesting collection of old trains. Very popular during special events such as Thomas the Train. However, sadly there is not a lot to do or see.
