Thomas and Friends: Explore the Rails
Opening Saturday, May 21
Welcome to the Island of Sodor! In Thomas & Friends™: Explore the Rails visitors find themselves surrounded by the island’s iconic locations, including Knapford Station and the Sodor Steamworks. Visitors climb aboard a large model of Thomas The Tank Engine and help him be a “Really Useful Engine.” Children race trains along a giant track, and work together to sort and load cargo to maintain engines.
The exhibit combines exciting play opportunities with important concepts in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and an emphasis on developing 21st century skills. These ideas are woven and layered throughout the exhibit, creating an experience that speaks to a diversity of interests, age groups, and learning styles.
