2 Tips for your trip!

    I will never do this again or recommend this to anyone with children. We had to walk 15 mins uphill, with children, to the arena from the parking lot. The ads were really misleading. Arriving 15 mins before as they recommended will not suffice. The train doesn’t stop for photos and you board towards the back of the train so children have no idea they are actually on Thomas. The train is a slow ride, stops and goes back, no announcement or anything. No scenery, just bush. Getting a photo or getting your child to see front of Thomas is a nightmare. The line was so long (and it was so uncoordinated) We had to wait for the train to board, depart and return to get to see the front of Thomas and take photos. Children and parents were all upset. No one left that place with a smile on their face. Everyone looked so disappointed. I never saw food to purchase at the arena. Their was no signage. They gave you an oversized map (pretty inconvenient to navigate while watching two boys run after the many toys for purchase). The area was also hot and humid, the air was off or not working. Went to the cashier to pay for my kids toys (they deserved them for their patience today) to learn the photo was behind, no big deal…but get this…Waiting to get the photos we were told the guy had to drive to the station to get the SD card Hahahah! We didn’t get the photos we waited so long for. Then 15 mins walk back to our car. Never. Again.
    Suggestions:
    1. Shuttle buses from all parking lots to take ppl to arena
    2. Start boarding lines from the front of the train so kids know they are on Thomas!
    3. Have a stationary thomas face so people can take pics and not have to wait for the train to return. Kids in line in the heat for over 40 mins is not right.
    4. When a ticket is purchased let people know what to expected. Every single child and parents leaving there looked upset.
    5. Have a mascot, sir topam hat walk through the slow train ride and greet kids with the train certificate.
    6. Have proper signage at the arena!

    I not sure where you were but we were in Uxbridge today. We were shuttled from the arena to the station; you were boarded like that for safety reasons; when we’d finished the ride we took our own pics of the kids with Thomas; there was plenty to eat at the arena; everyone on our train had loads of fun; your only valid complaint as far as we were concerned was that it was far too hot in the arena! Sorry you didn’t have a good time, but it was not our experience at all.
