Now through Sunday, August 2nd, Thomas the Tank Engine fans can meet Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the Railway and ride a train pulled by Thomas himself! Just step aboard the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad in Bryson City for all of the excitement. Your Day Out With Thomas™ includes a 25-minute train ride pulled by the authentic steam powered Tank Engine, plus live entertainment, a petting zoo, story telling, video viewing, an interactive play center (The Imagination Station) and more.
Tickets are $18 for ages 2 and up and can be purchased through this link.
While you are at it, be sure to check out the Smoky Mountain Trains Museum located just a block away from the Railroad. Thomas fans will enjoy seeing over 7,000 Lionel engines, cars, and accessories displayed and operating before their very eyes!
