This was our first trip out with Thomas and we were a little worried that we didn't go to the Southampton one after all the negative reviews on this site, but things couldn't have gone better and the kids (3y boy, 1y girl) absolutely enjoyed themselves.
The price is a little steep and it isn't the easiest place to get to, but there was plenty of entertainment around and the staff were so very friendly and went out of their way to help.
The main attraction was the Thomas ride. This was their first ride on a steam train and as the others have said it is a bit short, but you can go on as many times as you want so what does it matter. after the 4th ride we finally got the kids off.
They equally enjoyed the miniature train ride, although for very little kids an adult does need to hold tight otherwise they'll fall off. The punch and judy show and the magic shows also kept them entertained in between rides. The souvenir shop was a bit overpriced but which souvenir shop isn't?
All in all the whole day was fun and enjoyable for the kids, after all that is who it was aimed for, and if you have happy kids you have happy parents too!
