Thomas the Tank Engine, star of the popular series Thomas & Friends has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of his friend Percy from the Island of Sodor. On September 13, the wait will be over. Percy will be joining Thomas the Tank Engine on the rails as part of the Day Out with Thomas: Thrill of the Ride Tour, debuting at Strasburg Rail Road in Lancaster County before traveling to select U.S. cities through the end of the year.
This fun-filled event offers little engineers and their families the opportunity to take a ride with Thomas and Percy and meet Sir Topham Hatt®, Controller of the Railway. Thomas and Percy will talk to fans and Percy will tell the story of “Percy’s Chocolate Crunch.”
Thomas-themed activities including arts & crafts, storytelling and additional train-themed rides will be available throughout the day and are included with the ticket price.
The tour, now in its 19th year, makes stops in 42 U.S. cities and is expected to welcome nearly one million passengers in 2014. In addition to joining Day Out with Thomas this year, Percy will also have a starring role in the upcoming Thomas & Friends: Tale of the Brave movie.
