“So much potential, But...”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

For any little Thomas fan this place is good, but potentially could be so much better.
Entry is free and you purchase rides for $6 each with a choice on our day between Thomas, James, Percy and Toby.
While my five year old loved the mini rail, from an adult perspective the environment was less than desirable.
Staff were friendly, it was busy and the concept is great BUT the surrounds - the shed come shop was dusty and dirty. Outside the grass was overgrown and in desperate need of some maintenance. Limited hot food available - scones, coffee, drinks and snacks, albeit expensive. Plenty of tables, chairs and shelter provided.
Go for your little ones, they will enjoy it but don't expect much else.

“All Aboard!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

This is an enjoyable place to visit with kids. It is also cheap and affordable. Kids under 3 years of age ride free with a paying adult and entry is free. Would definitely come back here again. My daughter got to ride with Thomas, James, Percy and Toby.
