    About the Tour

    All aboard! Thomas the Tank Engine invites little engineers to join him for a day of friendship and family fun at Day Out with Thomas: Big Adventures Tour, 2018. Children everywhere can spend the day with their friend Thomas when the #1 Engine pulls into  the Oklahoma Railway Museum presented by Mattel.

    This fun-filled event offers little engineers and their families the opportunity to take a ride with a 15-ton replica of Thomas the Tank Engine, star of the popular Thomas & Friends™ series.  Children will ride along with their favorite hero on his latest adventure.  The tour, now in its 23nd year, will make stops in more than 45 US cities, and is expected to welcome more than one million passengers in 2018!

    In celebration of this year’s theme, Day Out With Thomas: Big Adventures Tour, 2018 will feature an array of friendship-inspired activities. Attendees will be able to participate in events that encourage and celebrate friendship including photo opportunities, crafts, and a fun activity that invites kids to collect passport stamps throughout the day to receive a trio of Day Out With Thomas friendship bracelets. The 2018 tour theme is in line with this year’s Thomas & Friends global brand campaign, ‘Set Friendship in Motion’ – a campaign that ties together content, social integrations, and event activations across the entire Thomas & Friends franchise to highlight the importance of first friendships and the development of key friendship skills in toddlers.
