My son loves all things Thomas the train. I heard about this hidden gem which is downtown Greenville (a stone's throw distance from the Falls Park bridge) I recommend that you come visit during the Christmas holidays. There are two main displays during the winter months. The first display is the Christmas featured train display. There is a room about 500 square feet with a snowy mountain scene. There is a holiday themed scavenger hunt that my son and I enjoyed doing together. (The theme was primarily based on Frozen and Rudolph) After about 45 minutes of walking around the Christmas display, we headed over to the second display. The second display is much larger (probably 1,000 - 1,500 square feet. There is a giant mountain in the center, an entire town, roundhouse, neighborhoods, etc... If you remember Mr. Roger's Neighborhood's opening scene, it brought back a lot of memories. There were train tunnels, bridges, and lots of scenery that made it very enjoyable. I think I enjoyed it a bit more than my son. After walking around the second display (which is the one that is there year round) for another 30 minutes, my son was ready to go. The scavenger hunt for the second display was geared towards older kids (i.e., how many_____ are there).
When we went, it was $5 per child, and $7 per adult. I think it was worth it, especially since we got two displays for the price of one. My favorite was actually the Christmas display. I think you should plan on spending an hour to an hour and a half (depending on age of child/attention span).
Afterwards, stop by Spill the Beans by Falls Park for a treat.
