Day Out With Thomas™ is heading to Grapevine Vintage Railroad

GRAPEVINE, TEXAS – (Oct. 3, 2022) – Peep! Peep! Thomas the Tank Engine is coming to town for a limited time and will be hosting outdoor events at the Grapevine Vintage Railroad on October 7-9 and October 14-16, 2022.

Day Out With Thomas™ is a full day event for families and friends hosted by one of the biggest friends of all—Thomas the Tank Engine! Every ticket includes an interactive train ride with a life-sized Thomas the Tank Engine as well as access to a full day of activities for the whole family to enjoy. At Day Out With Thomas™, families are encouraged to ride, play and stay all day—and there’ll be plenty to do including games, entertainment, photo opps, and more! This year, we are encouraging friends of all ages to dream big in the Dream BIG! Corner, where kids can go for fun photo opps, arts and crafts, and more. We also created the Dream Pass for kids to track their journey at the Railway and pick up a special giveaway at the end of the day. And before leaving, we’d love for the kids to say hello to Sir Topham Hatt, the Railway Controller from the Island of Sodor and stop in the pop-up gift shop for exclusive Thomas swag. Spending a Day Out With Thomas™ will remind kids to dream big and imagine how far they can go! Capacity will be limited, and advanced tickets are required.
