Welcome to Thomas Town™!

Coming in 2018: Thomas Town™ at Kennywood!

Thomas & Friends™ are making tracks to a great destination this summer: Kennywood! Thomas Town™ at Kennywood will bring to life everyone’s favorite No. 1 Engine, along with his friends and favorite destinations from the Island of Sodor! Thomas Town will be one of the largest additions in the 120-year history of Kennywood Park, featuring four new family rides based on characters from the beloved children’s program, and a life-sized Thomas the Tank Engine™ traveling on a redesigned Olde Kennywood Railroad. Young conductors and their families can experience thrills with Thomas, Cranky, Harold, Flynn, and Diesel, along with live shows featuring Sir Topham Hatt and some of his Really Useful Engines!

Thomas Town at Kennywood will be centered around the National Historic Landmark park’s 85-year-old train area. It will be the second-largest permanent Thomas & Friends attraction in North America. Guests will enter Thomas Town near the Pagoda Restaurant and find four new rides, a new gift shop & soft play area, new games, a stage show, and a Birthdays and Special Events Pavilion.
