Ever since I posted the Medina event ticket giveaway last month I have been flooded with messages asking me all sorts of questions! Is A Day Out with Thomas worth the pricey ticket? What age group is best for A Day Out with Thomas? Is it just a train ride?
Honestly, I thought it would be an overpriced, quick gimmick type of event. The type of thing you show up to, snap a photo & leave. After all they are catering to little ones who are easily impressed with anything & parents these days will spend money on anything. This was all before I actually went to the A Day Out with Thomas event. I’m here now to set the record straight and to encourage you to not miss the chance to take your little ones to this event when it rolls into your hometown! There is definitely a reason that A Day Out with Thomas has been running strong for 20 years across the country and Canada & it's totally worth every penny!
Don't have a camera with you? Don't worry! For afew extra dollars they have a photographer on hand to snap photos of you and Thomas :)
Expect to spend at least 2-1/2 – 3 hours at A Day Out with Thomas since your kiddos can play with train tables, mega bloks, get there faces painted & even get a Thomas tattoo ;-) ALL included in the ticket price!
Then off we went! The ride itself was approximately 25 minutes out and back. During our ride we looked out the windows to see the green landscape and we even had a brief stop when another train passed us on a nearby track. Thomas and Sir Topham Hatt are your tour guides throughout the 25 minute ride & they talk about life as Thomas the Train, his friends, playing, and having fun. There are segments with music and interactive times to toot like Thomas. My daughter was smiling, dancing, and enjoying the scenery the entire time :) It was also her first ever train ride so it will make for a great story when she's older that her first train ride was on Thomas himself ;-)
Will my young kids like it? Will my older kids like it? So, what age is A Day Out with Thomas for? This was the number one question I had!
You will find many preschoolers at A Day Out with Thomas wearing their Thomas shirts and gear. This is the age that little girls & boys really get into Thomas & is the age group this event is catered too! My daughter turned 3 in March and had a blast! If your kiddo is a sand box, train table loving Thomas freak, they will fit right in! If I had older kids, like over the age of 5, I probably wouldn't bring them to this unless they were going with preschool age kids. Older kids might get bored quickly.
