readysetgo2016A Day Out With Thomas: The Ready, Set, Go Tour 2016
Coming to The Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera, AL – April 8-10 and 16-17, 2016

Start your engines!  Thomas the Tank Engine invites little engineers to team up with him for a day of family fun at Day Out with Thomas: The Ready, Set, Go Tour 2016.  Children everywhere can join Team Thomas when the #1 Engine pulls into Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in April 2016!  Day Out with Thomas: The Ready, Set, Go Tour 2016 is presented by Fisher-Price.

This fun-filled event offers children and their families the opportunity to take a ride with Thomas the Tank Engine, star of the popular Thomas & Friends™ series. In addition, they will meet Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the Railway and enjoy a day of Thomas-themed activities. 

For the 19th consecutive year, Thomas The Tank Engine returns to the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum, for two back-to-back weekends in April. The day offers plenty of fun outside the ride aboard Thomas including putt-putt golf, a petting zoo, jumpstation, bubble station, maze, sandbox and more.

Did you know that Thomas the Train TALKS at these events?  Check out our video from two years ago of Thomas talking:

I love at the end when my little guy said (about Thomas talking) “Thomas not shy anymore!” So cute!

And here’s our video from last year:

Both of these were at Heart of Dixie RR Museum.  We really love their facility and always have a lot of fun when we visit!

If you would like to see Thomas too, I have four tickets for Saturday, April 16. These tickets are good only for The Day Out With Thomas at The Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera, AL. Tickets are for the 3:45 train ride but I would arrive at least 2 hours early so you can participate in all the other activities! Last year there was a sandbox, bubble blowing station, story time and movies (in a train car!), live musicians playing children’s songs, putt-putt, and the Thomas toy tent – with dozens of Trackmaster, Mega Blocks and wooden Thomas train sets to play with and arts and crafts to do! Plus the attractions that are found year round at The Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum.

Please note again that this giveaway is for four tickets to A Day Out With Thomas at The Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera, AL on Saturday, April 16, 2016. These tickets cannot be changed. Winner will be notified within 24 hours of the end of the giveaway (end date is 11:59 PM cst on March 21st) by email used to enter and given 24 hours to claim their prize or a new winner will be chosen.
