Catch a train ride with Thomas the Tank Engine in July

“Day Out With Thomas” featuring Thomas the Tank Engine returns to Snoqualmie in his only Pacific Northwest tour stop, at the Northwest Railway Museum on July 9-11 and July 16-18.

With health and safety protocols in place, this event offers families the opportunity to hop on board an interactive train ride with a life-sized Thomas the Tank Engine. Activities include a hay maze, live entertainment, photo opportunities, a bubble zone and more. Children will receive a take-home goody bag of Thomas themed fun, and can say “hello” to Sir Topham Hatt, the Railway Controller from The Island of Sodor.

There will be Thomas themed activities at the Train Shed Exhibit Hall area and fun things to see at the Historic Snoqualmie Depot. Visitors can check out the pop-up gift shop for exclusive Thomas swag.

Capacity will be limited and advanced tickets are required. Everyone with a ticket receives a free admission for a follow-up visit to the Museum’s Train Shed Exhibit Hall this summer.

Masks are required for guests ages 5 and up event (masks recommended for guests ages 2-4).

Advanced tickets are required and are sold at https://Thomas.TrainMuseum.org. Ticket prices are $21-$28 for ages 2 and up (service charges and fees may apply). Walk-up sales will not be available.
