The train was nice for the kids. They do offer free stuff for them to do such as face painting, balloon animals, tattoos, bouncy house, train tables, and pictures with Tophat. They also offer a store where Thomas the Train items can be purchased. Food vendors were available if you wanted to do lunch, have a soda, or snack.
