Our toddler is a Thomas the train fan so we decided to ignore the $24.95 admission fee (ages two and up) and go to A Day Out With Thomas at the West Coast Railway Heritage Park.
The event included a short train ride - about 20 mins through the train yards. Not much in the way of scenery but just enough to give very small children a taste of riding on the train. Other activities included writing a letter to Thomas or one of the other trains, touring the mail car, seeing model trains, seeing Sir Toppam Hat, a bouncy castle, colouring and toy train stations. Kids also were able to gat stickers and a poster by collecting stamps at various locations. You can also ride another mini train around the park for an additional fee. Regular exhibits also included the Royal Hudson and some classic cars.
Overall it was worth it to see our child's reaction to seeing Thomas, but without the event going on there wouldnt be enough to warrant a visit for anyone other than real train enthusiasts. Best for ages two to five. Older kids and adults may find less to be entertained.
