Details

The Fat Controller will be welcoming you and your family plus you can join him for Storytelling time and interactive re-enactments with Thomas and other characters throughout the day.

A variety of activities will also be taking place all day including the Imagination Station which offers a wide range of children's activities, from Circus Skills, Punch & Judy, Colouring Competition, engine outline rubbing, playtables with plasticine, temporary Thomas tattoos, reading books and much more.

Our trains run all day long with no fixed timetable and you can have as many rides as you like, whenever you like. This is a real family day out, voted a hit by our visitors as a great time for young and old so we hope you’ll come and join us!
