Did you know Canada.. this past Sunday we checked out the Day Out With Thomas: The Go Go Thomas Tour 2013 in St. Thomas ON - one of only 3 stops in Canada and the only one in Ontario!
It was AWESOME! The boys had a great time. Not only do you get to ride Thomas but there is so much more to do - bubbles to play with, stories to listen to, entertainment, animals to pet, a hay maze, a mist area, really fantastic balloon animals, Thomas tattoos, 2 jumpy areas, a gift shop and more!
The boys loved making big bubbles and they REALLY loved the jumps, there was even a Thomas jumpy the has a slide. There are also activity stations set up to colour, make conductor hats, play with Thomas the train sets, just so much to do.
Then comes the main event - riding Thomas! You hop on the train and take a lovely 25 minute ride through the outskirts of St. Thomas, you also listen to Thomas music during the ride, meet with the conductor, get a family photo taken if you'd like and the kids get a certificate at the end of the ride.
There was quite a few different food options as well - hot dogs, pizza, fries, cookies, ice cream and more. You can really enjoy an entire day out, the community of St. Thomas even offers a few treats to every visitor as well - a discount at the local Wendys, a coupon for Boston Pizza, a free visit to the Elgin County Railway Museum which is a really interesting stop.
Fun for a huge age range, all my boys enjoyed the day! The Day Out With Thomas: The Go Go Thomas Tour 2013 is in St. Thomas one more weekend, so there's still time to ride!
