Day Out With Thomas Returns to Tampa {Giveaway}

thomasOther moms warned me that boys have a tendency to become obsessed with trains, cars, planes and really anything with wheels and moves. My girls loved cars and trains, but nothing like their little brother. Liam loves trains, especially that “very useful engine”, Thomas the Tank Engine.

When Thomas the Tank Engine rolled into the Tampa Bay area last Spring, we traveled down south to Parrish to spend A Day Out With Thomas and his friends at the Florida Railroad Museum.

 Day Out With Thomas: The Go Go Thomas Tour

My Little Lion Man loved seeing the larger than life Thomas.  His smile was wider than Island of Sodor when we rode through the Parrish countryside.

 Day Out With Thomas: The Go Go Thomas Tour

For the next two weekends (March 15 – 16 and 22 – 23), Thomas and his friends return to the Florida Railroad Museum in Parrish for another Day Out With Thomas: The Thrill of the Ride Tour 2014. On Saturday and Sunday, visitors can board a 25-minute with Thomas the Tank Engine and Sir Tophamm Hatt, Controller of the Sodor Railway.

New this year, visitors can hear Thomas talk to them for the very first time on the tour.  I can’t wait to see the expression on my Little Lion Man’s Face when he hears Thomas chatting to all the children!

Guests can visit A Day Out With Thomas on the Florida Railroad Museum grounds from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm. While waiting to board, visitors can explore the Thomas & Friends Imagination Station which offers hands-on arts & crafts, train tables and more.  With storytelling, live music, a bounce house and other activities there’s fun for the whole family.

Ticket prices are $18 plus tax for ages 2 and up (service charges and fee may apply).  For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.frrm.org. For information on Thomas & Friends, visit www.thomasandfriends.com

    Eli says he would have “so so so much fun!”. Then proceeded to sing a made-up “Thomas the Train” song.

  2. Dana S says:

    She would love just seeing all the trains. And I’m sure it wouldn’t hurt for them to be from her favorite cartoon

  3. Amy DC says:

    My soon to be 3 year old daughter is Thomas obsessed! She has never been to this event before and I know she would love it.I think she would be in awe of everything but her favorite part would probably be the train ride on Thomas.

    my son loves Thomas. Watches the show and plays with him. He would enjoy the train ride and having a photo taken with him.

  5. Bonnie V says:

    Henry’s favorite part is the train ride. He and his daddy love steam engines and riding on Thomas is always a special treat. It’s all Henry can talk about for months afterward.

  6. Shannie T. says:

    My little guy would flip over getting to ride on Thomas the actual train. I am sure he would wear he conductor outfit and probably want to bring his train whistle. This would be something he would never forget!

  7. Laura says:

    My boys are 5 and 3, and they both love Thomas. They would be so excited to ride Thomas and enjoy all the activities. I would love to use this for a great family day together!
