All aboard! Thomas the Tank Engine is headed back to the Midland Railway in Baldwin City, Kansas. I live just outside Kansas City and it's about an hour drive for us to go see Thomas. Our kids are both really excited to see him live and in person (way more so than they were last year), so I know it's going to be a big hit.
Even if you aren't in KC, you can probably catch a stop on Thomas' tour somewhere near you! Here's the scoop on this year's tour!
Little engineers won't believe their eyes - or their ears! For the first time ever at Day Out With Thomas, Thomas the Tank Engine will be able to talk to his fans. Boys and girls will be cheerfully greeted by the #1 Engine when he pulls into Midland Railway Historical Association for Day Out with Thomas: The Thrill of the Ride Tour 2014.
This fun-filled event offers little engineers and their families the opportunity to take ride Thomas the Tank Engine, star of the popular Thomas & Friends series. In addition, children will meet Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the Railway and enjoy a day of Thomas-themed activities including arts and crafts, storytelling, and more. The tour, now in its 19th year, will make stops in 42 U.S. cities and is expected to welcome nearly one million passengers in 2014.
Thomas will be in Baldwin City May 30 - June 1 and June 6-8. Rides are available from 8:30am to 5:00pm. You can purchase tickets here - or enter to win below! Visit Midland Railway for more info and directions.
