My family and I went to the Day out with Thomas event last weekend at the KY Railway Museum in New Haven, KY.  This event is so much more than just a train ride and I love that there are so many interactive experiences for the kids!  I highly recommend getting there at least 2 hours before your train ride, or allowing for 2 hours after your train ride to experience everything the event has to offer!

We first checked in and received our maps and schedule.  We were told to be at our train gate 20 mins. before departure time but until then we were free to get our map stamped and walk around.  If you got all four areas stamped on your map from the various stations, you could turn them in for a free gift at the gift shop before you left.

We visited some of the kid-friendly attractions such as the temporary tattoo station where the kids could chose which train they wanted. Then we went over to let the kids play on the train tables at the Imagination Station area.  There were several large train tables and Mega Blocks tables set up where kids could play together.


We had so much fun with the mini golf course, the petting zoo, and the train ride.  My kids didn't want to leave!
