This weekend is your last chance to catch Thomas the Train before he chugs off to his next destination. Even if you haven’t bought advanced tickets you can still go and buy tickets at the door. There will be a limited number of ride tickets so if your train enthusiast wants to ride the rails you need to get there early. Regular admission (without ride) still gets you access to loads of Thomas themed stuff including face painting, music shows, story telling, movies, Sir Tomham Hat photo ops and more. I’ll let you watch my two year old’s reaction in case you’re on the fence.
This is my son’s initial response to seeing Thomas. He was a bit nervous and very reserved. You can see he’s kind of sucking in his lip and that’s what he does when he’s a bit unsure of what’s going on. But in the second video (which I shot today, 5 days after we were there, you’ll see his true feelings on the events of the day.
We’ve attended Day Out with Thomas several times now and it’s always such a fun day. The kids really do love it and you know what? So do I. I love seeing them so excited about what is going on and I love that we picnic at the park, ride the carnival rides, shop at the candy store…all of it. I’ll be sad when they are too big to be interested in hanging out with their mom at Day out with Thomas but right now, as we’re in the thick of all that is train related, it’s something I’m soaking in and relishing.
My oldest still had fun too even though she’s pushing six and has pretty much grown out of her interest in the tv show. She loved getting her face painted the most and she also loved riding the train. Who doesn’t want to ride a train? Am I right? Go hang out at Heritage this weekend. You won’t be sad you did.
