Enjoy a day filled with friendship and family fun at Day Out With Thomas™ this summer.

For nine days between 5th–13th August, children will be able to take a ride with Thomas and Friends and experience lots of fun-filled activities as well as meet The Fat Controller, which are all included in the price.

The event will promote lasting friendships between children and adults alike as part of Thomas and Friends fun global brand campaign “Set Friendship in Motion”. This focuses on how playing and watching Thomas can promote friendships – in particular first relationships for toddlers and how to build these.

Day Out With Thomas will include crafts, interactive entertainment and fun and games for all - providing the perfect opportunity to highlight the friendship theme.

Alongside unlimited rides aboard Thomas and other full sized steam trains, visitors will also have an exciting range of activities to choose from that include rides on a miniature railway, a bouncy slide, tea cup ride and story corner. Entertainer “Rusty” will be returning following his popular debut at Easter to dazzle the crowds with fun and magic tricks while attempting to keep The Fat Controller happy.

Rusty will again host three magic shows a day with guaranteed laughter for little ones, with his repertoire including arm puppet “Vern the Bird”, the multiplying vegetable, a disappearing bottle of ketchup, a special Thomas trick where he is brought to life on a cartoon picture, a fun sing-along for all the kids and storytelling from classic Thomas the Tank Engine books.

This summer’s Day Out With Thomas promises to be a special occasion for children with many events and activities highlighting the importance of friendships - something that is so important when you are growing up.There will also be the regular exciting Thomas themed activities, as well as the chance for people to ride on a real steam engine and the miniature railway. Our popular entertainer Rusty is also returning with his repertoire of tricks and jokes, which is not to be missed. With everything included in the ticket price this event offers a wonderful day out for great value.
