Day Out with Thomas Review

Day Out withThomas at the Heber Valley Railroad was another hit this year.  Not only was it fun but the weather was perfect!  My Thomas fans grinned ear to ear the entire time!

There was balloon animals, hats, name it.  And if they popped you could go get another one. :)  I know this from experience.  Everyone was so nice!
Each kid also got a paper when they arrived.  Then you go to 4 different fun areas to get a stamp.  Once you get them all you got a free prize from the gift tent.

This year they were able to meet Sir Topham Hatt!  They were shy at first, but ended up giving him a high five.  There was a professional photographer at this station and in front of the Thomas Train.   You could opt to buy their photo if you want. 

We saw a juggling show and there was a magic show that we missed.  Face painting, train tables, story-telling, movies...etc, and of course the train ride.   My daughter said her favorite part of Day Out with Thomas was riding on the train.  
My son said his favorite part was his

 If you are not in Utah you can find a Day Out with Thomas Event in your area.  They visit 45 different cities!

 I received free tickets to give my honest opinions. Note: This post may contain a sponsored/affiliate/referral link. Thank you for supporting this site!

We did this when my son was younger. We actually were visiting a train station that we took a day drive to visit because the kids like trains and museums. How excited were we to find out that the regular station/museum was shut down for the day for Thomas to come visit but they still had a few tickets available for later in the day if we wanted to goof around in town and come back a little later when we could get in. We sooo couldn't turn that down! It was a nice small cute town so we were able to explore an old hardware store, go get food from a cute little old style cafe, and then hang out along the local parks riverbank until it was time to head back and have our Thomas fun! Our only dislike of the whole thing was how much the tickets cost to get in for how little time we were allowed to stay and play!
