All aboard for a Day Out with Thomas the Train! The beloved, famous and cheeky little Thomas the Train steam engine is coming to town NEXT MONTH. Mark your calendars for the Day Out with Thomas event in Perris, CA, and enter to win four FREE tickets in our giveaway below!
My son is obsessed with trains. Absolutely obsessed. Like, stuffs them in his pillowcase, under his mattress, behind his carseat, in drawers all over the house, obsessed.
Does anyone else walk around the house unconsciously humming, “They’re two, they’re four, they’re six, they’re EIGHT….”? You moms know what I’m talking about. This is why I am SO excited to take my little man to see THE Thomas the Train in person. I mean, what could be better?
According to their website, here’s what you can expect: Day Out With Thomas the Train offers an opportunity for children and their grown-ups to take a 25 minute ride with Thomas the Tank Engine, and to have their picture taken with Sir Topham Hatt, the Superintendent of the Railroad. (I know my son will squeal in utter delight at this one!)
The event includes Thomas and Friends storytelling, a viewing station for Thomas and Friends videos, a petting zoo, entertainment by Jules Music 4 Kids, an Imagination Station and much more. This is definitely an event meant to last several hours, so plan to accordingly, including sunscreen, hats, snacks, water bottles…and whatever else makes your little ones comfortable for a day out.
Also, make sure to arrive no later than one hour prior to your scheduled departure!
The Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, CA (close to Lake Elsinore) is a fantastic destination spot for any train lover in your family. In addition to special events, like the Day Out with Thomas, you can also meander through their museum…their website calls it the West’s largest collection of railway locomotives, passenger and freight cars, streetcars, interurban electric cars, buildings, and other artifacts dating from the 1870s.
