Two Kids and a Coupon received tickets to this event for purposes of a review and a reader giveaway has also been provided by our sponsor. All opinions and love of Thomas are completely our own. 

Peep Peep!  If you have a Thomas the Train fan in your life, you know that there’s only one little true blue engine that makes little engineers happy. My little conductor eats, breathes and sleeps trains 24 hours a day and we have nearly every “chug” in the Thomas the Train collection along with all the DVDS. We love Thomas dearly and one special event that we always look forward to each fall is the Day Out With Thomas Event.

We headed out last weekend to visit Thomas for our third visit and to ride the rails with our favorite little blue engine.  Thomas made his Iowa stop at the Boone Scenic Valley Railroad in Boone, Iowa.

The railway normally offers some great views and opportunities to ride the rails, but this weekend and next weekend is all about Thomas!  In addition to riding the train pulled by Thomas, there are lots of Thomas themed activities including bouncy houses, storytime, a corn maze, and more. You can even meet Sir Topham Hatt™.

Even though we’ve been to the event a few years in a row, the kids were excited, and my little man could hardly wait for our turn to ride Thomas.

The kids loved that real conductors took the tickets and helped them to their seats.

  1. My oldest (9) is too old for this now, so we haven’t gone in a couple of years, but it’s a great event for little Thomas fans.

  2. We went to the event in TN earlier this year and my grandsons loved it! At first I thought the train ride was too short, but quickly realized it was about all my two young grandsons could handle and was perfect!

  3. That is so much fun! My boy and my girl loves watching Thomas the Train Engine and his friends and this would be a fun place to visit. Didn’t know about this place until you did a review about it. Thanks for sharing!

    • If you have a Thomas fan, this event is a blast. I would definitely recommend if it comes anywhere near you. It would make their dreams come true!
