2024 Day out with Thomas Sponsored By:



My sons love trains and this was their 1st ride other than Day out with Thomas when they were 3. Danielle Ibarra - Fall 2022

My sons love trains and this was their 1st ride other than Day out with Thomas when they were 3. My 9 yr old loved the ride and turntable and seeing all the different trains. My 14 yr old loved all that and enjoyed the history. As for my husband and I we loved it all!. It was a great last minute activity for our weekend getaway!

An Afternoon Enjoying the Trains NanaD1 - Spring 2022

Learning more about the history of Missionary Ridge and the steam train. Thomas the train event was also going on at the same time and it was fun to see all the families and kids enjoying the trains. The entire operation is handled very efficiently with their staff doing an outstanding job. Our only complaint is the actual length of the ride itself. It needs to be longer as most of the time was spent with stops. Overall is an enjoyable afternoon out.

Fun with Thomas the Tank Engine! Dan E - Spring 2022

Visited today for the Thomas the Tank Engine train ride. The grandkids love Thomas, so this was a “no brainer” when I came across it while checking out the TVRM website. Kids loved it along with all the extra activities set up for the Thomas weekend. Hats off to the museum staffk for hosting a very busy weekend. I was more than happy to pay for extras in the form of food and toys to help support the museum. A lot of families visiting and all that I saw were having a great time. Thrilled that we had such a wonderful time and will visit again.

Day Out With Thomas is always well organized and staff is great. Thad T - Spring 2022

Day Out With Thomas is always well organized and staff is great. This is a great mini vacation for train enthusiasts. The Missionary Ridge local train is the best short ride and with turntable experience.
