Don’t Miss A Day Out With Thomas At Midland Railway!
ALL ABOARD! The FINAL weekend for Day Out with Thomas at Midland Railway is THIS weekend! My guys and I had the opportunity to check out the festivities in Baldwin City, KS, located about an hour or so from KC. Check out our day!
My husband, son, and I ventured out this morning and made a SUPER fun day of it! They offered free parking with a shuttle bus from the elementary school. It was my two year old’s first experience on a school bus so he was excited from the moment we got out of the car. We arrived just in time for our departure on Thomas! The look on his face when he saw the giant train with Thomas pulling it was best part of the whole experience for this momma! He is a HUGE fan of trains, Thomas and all his friends!
The ride lasted about 35 minutes or so and takes you on a scenic tour of Baldwin City farmland! When we got off the train and all the memorable pictures in front of Thomas were complete, we were free to check out all of the other many fantastic activities: bouncy house, Imagination Station, mini golf, gift shop, Sir Topham Hatt, story telling and videos, magic show and much more! The bounce house was the perfect size for little ones ages 2 to 6! When you arrive you are provided a Passport to Friendship with 4 different “stamp stations” and once you complete your passport you get a little prize!
There is a gift shop with lots of fun exclusive Day Out with Thomas merchandise to remember your trip! We wrapped up our trip with lunch at Moose Backwoods BBQ, a restaurant located inside the gas station, on the way out of town. It was pretty good (but I think as Kansas Citians we all know who rules the roost on the gas station BBQ thing!)
A combo ticket gets you a ride on Thomas AND on Percy! Tickets are still available at midlandrailway.org. Be sure to use discount code IFKC2017 for $2 off each ticket! It was a great little day trip for my family and I definitely see another visit to see Thomas and the gang in our future!
