The whole town is talking trains! Thomas the Tank Engine, from Sir Topham Hatt’s fleet of engines, is chugging his way into Greenfield Village – making it one of the hot things to do in metro Detroit for three fun-filled weekends, loaded with train rides, special guests and more on April 25-26, May 2-3 and 9-10, 2015.
Thomas will first stop at the Smith Creek Depot for a photo op, after which he will supply 30-minute round-trip rides through the village. Folks waiting for their turn to board will enjoy live music and sing-a-longs from Barry the Guitar Guy, Picks & Sticks Stringband, and others.
Off the platform, guests will get to see one person turn a locomotive on the railroad turntable, enjoy pedal cars and bubbles, or play on a 1920s construction site-themed playground. Plus, there will be modular train displays, courtesy of Glancy Trains Modular Group, an Imagination Station Tent where kids can get Thomas-themed temporary tattoos, a magic show, food and more.
Kids will even get a chance to meet and snap a pic with Sir Topham Hatt himself, when he stops by at select times 9:45 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Day Out With Thomas starts at 9:30 a.m. at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, April 25-26, May 2-3 and 9-10, 2015. Tickets to this event may sell out quickly and will automatically be added to the price of a Greenfield Village ticket. Prices are as follows: $36.75/adults, $34.25/seniors, $30.50/kids ages 5-12, $11.75/kids 1-4, $6/parking.
