Day Out with Thomas: The Thrill of the Ride Tour 2014

This is a fun-filled event that provides children of all ages the opportunity to climb aboard and take a ride with Thomas as well as participate in Thomas & Friends themed activities.   For two back-to-back weekends, little engineers and their families are invited to take a 25 minute ride on their favorite engine, meet Sir Topham Hatt®, Controller of the Railway and enjoy a day of Thomas & Friends themed activities including arts & crafts, storytelling and more.  Florida Railroad Museum will also offer mini train rides, face painting, a bounce house, imagination station, live entertainment along with other activities.   We had the opportunity to attend the Day Out With Thomas event last year at the Florida Railroad Museum and my little guy still talks about it. There was so much to do and see and it was simply a dream come true for my little train lover. You can see all about our adventure last year HERE.
