Thomas the Tank Engine will be pulling into the station at Greenfield Village in Dearborn just in time for lots of railroad-themed fun for Day Out With Thomas April 28-29, May 5-6 and May 12-13, 2018.
Visitors will enjoy a variety of activities including roundhouse tours of steam locomotives, learning railroad songs, listening to stories, taking photos with Sir Topham Hatt and temporary tattoos of their Island of Sodor friends.
The experience is a reminder that the Thomas saying really is true, “Little engines can do big things!”
As kids make discoveries and try out the many hands-on activities at the event, they’ll also be learning indispensable lessons about mechanics and engineering in an engaging way – by using all their senses.
Alongside the train rides, meetings and storytelling experiences, little ones can also dance to live music, watch magic shows, visit the imagination station – now equipped with iPads that visitors can interact with – and even do some shopping.
Train ride departure times are available between 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. (last time slot is at 4:30 p.m.) and guests are encouraged to register in advance, as tickets sell out fast.
Non-member admission prices, which include entry to Greenfield Village and the Thomas the Tank event, are $39.75 for adults, $32.75 for ages 5-11 and $11.75 for ages 1-4. Parking costs $6. For members, the rate is $11.75 for all ages and parking is free.
