This must-see special introduces exciting and diverse new characters as well as historic new destinations, so climb aboard for a thrilling ride!
We joined Thomas & Friends as they embarked on a legendary movie adventure last Wednesday at a very special VIP screening which took place at Drayton Manor Theme Park in Tamworth. The steam team’s quest began when a special guest arrived on Sodor with a big surprise and lots of important jobs for Thomas, Percy and James to do. The engines met new friends and discovered suits of armour, coats of arms and legends of long-ago heroes. Their bravery was put to the test when their new friend Stephen went missing but did Thomas find him in time? ( I can't possibly tell you the answer ) Will the engines discover the truth about the Island of Sodor’s biggest mystery? King Of The Railway is fun packed crusade of knightly proportions for Thomas & Friends. Ryan and I really enjoyed it, it was a little hard to get Ryan to sit still for all of it as it lasted a full hour but he he is still only little (aged 3). We got to enjoy this new movie in a 4D cinema, the film itself was shown in 2D but there was lots of 4D effects thrown in for us like pretty bubbles and moving seats. It was lots of fun, I'm so glad we went along to enjoy it.
Drayton Manor is home to one of our favourite places ever - Thomas Land. My little man loves it there, in fact we all do. There's so many rides for him to enjoy but the Airplanes are by far his favourite of them all, he loved them so much that we had to ride them again and again and again. Luckily for us there was no queues at all last week as most of the schools were back open so it was nice and quiet. Thankfully the weather was gorgeous and the sun shone down on us making our whole experience just perfect. Sadly my girls had to go to school so they couldn't join us this time so we took Grandad and cousin Luke along with us. I think they had a great time too, my dad enjoyed the Bumper Cars, the Pirate Adventure and even the Carousel which he said he hadn't been on for over 40 years, it was really nice to see him have a good time.
Thomas & Friends new DVD is definitely worth watching if you're a Thomas fan. It's a fun filled adventure with lots of new characters to meet and enjoy.
We finished off our day off with a picture with the Fat Controller who was more than happy to pose with us. Drayton Manor is a delightful place where real family memories are made every day. If you're ever in tamworth it's well worth visiting, there's fun for everyone.
Disclosure, Thank you to Drayton Manor who invited us to this special VIP screening of Thomas & Friends King Of The Railway. We had free entry into the park and received a Thomas & Friends goody bag. This post has been written of my own accord and all the opinions expressed are honest and my own.
