Event Details

This is a fabulous event for the little “Thomas” fans (and the family too!). Join Thomas & FriendsTM to enjoy train rides and take part in many Thomas-themed activities when you purchase tickets for the 12km steam and diesel train ride.

Thomas the Tank Engine will be offering rides in his trucks. His friends Rusty and Bulgy will be there. Bulgy will be taking passengers on trips around the beautiful local countryside. And of course Sir Topham Hatt, the Fat Controller will be in charge for the day.

Book your train tickets online or pay at the gate.
