Kennywood Park Adds Thomas The Train Theme Village

Kennywood announced it plans to expand its children’s theme featured ride area with a Thomas The Train theme town later this year.

It’ll feature Thomas the Tank Engine, all of his friends and some destinations from the Island of Sodor.

Thomas Town will include four new family rides, plus retheming The Olde Kennywood Rail Road into a Thomas & Friends story. There will also be a retail center, soft-play area, Birthday Center, and the entertainment show featuring Thomas’ friends Percy, James, Emily and Gordon.

We’re so excited to welcome Thomas & Friends to Kennywood,” says Kennywood General Manager Jerome Gibas. “Thomas Town presents a huge addition that expands our family offerings while introducing the park to Thomas & Friends fans from around the globe. We couldn’t ask for a better gift for Kennywood and our guests to help celebrate our 120th anniversary season in 2018.”

According to a release by Kennywood, it will be the second-largest permanent Thomas and Frie theme area in North America.
