All aboard! Thomas & Friends™: Explore the Rails! is rolling back into the station. Guests will find themselves surrounded by the Island of Sodor’s iconic locations, such as Knapford Station, Sodor Steamworks and much more.

Young conductors can help the world’s most beloved blue train and the other engines solve a variety of challenges, from simple sorting and shape identification to more complex engineering obstacles, such as completing a train track. As children test their abilities, the smiling faces of Thomas and friends offer encouragement and remind children how “really useful” they all are.
