They’re two, they’re four, they’re six, they’re eight,
Shunting trucks and hauling freight.
If you are the parent of a child under ten years of age, chances are you’re very familiar with the song lyric above. It is the theme song of the beloved television show Thomas and Friends, which has been captivating kids for so long that some of you parents may have been big fans of the show when you were little ones!
For a limited engagement this summer (July 12-14, July 19-21), Thomas himself will be appearing in North Conway at the famed Conway Scenic Railroad.
Here are all the amazing activities that are included with your ticket to ride (as stated on the Conway Scenic Railroad website):
- A ticket for Day Out With Thomas includes the train ride with Thomas the Tank Engine, as well as a variety of Thomas & Friends themed entertainment, including Storytelling and Video Viewing, plus live music, unlimited motorcar rides, bouncy houses, mini golf, engine tours, and an awesome Imagination Station that’s organized and staffed by the Mt. Washington Valley Children’s Museum. Here you will find Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway play tables, temporary tattoos, face painting, coloring and stamping stations, arts & crafts, and “Frodo, the Walking Tank,” a 70-pound tortoise who free-roams the area outside the tent! Guests will also have the opportunity to meet Sir Topham Hatt, the Controller of the Railway on the Island of Sodor, who is visiting North Conway for the event. The average length of stay for past guests has been 3.5 hours, so please plan accordingly.
One thing you all should know about Thomas — that is, if you don’t already know.
Among the ten-and-under crowd, this guy is a total rock star.
So you should open your summer calendar to July, put a big blue star on either July 13th or July 20th, and call us at (800) 332-6646 with your desired stay dates and ticket request.
Just remember, Thomas may be your child’s hero…
But you’ll be an even bigger hero for taking your child to meet him!
