We went when my kids were 3 years old and my son in PRIME loving Thomas stage.  We felt that going once was enough as “attractions” didn’t change from year to year.  The Thomas Train ride was cute but they simply just had the first car dressed up like Thomas.  We went on two other train rides that the kids enjoyed.  They has a “scavenger hunt” when we went (i.e. visiting all the stations, getting a stamp and getting a SMALL prize).  We enjoyed walking through the old cars but it was super hot as they aren’t air conditioned.  There are some restaurant options but not many… you can pack a lunch.  They had a bouncy house set up, picture stations (ex. take a pic with Sir Topham Hat), a small tent set up with face painting, card making and colorig and a little wheel cart thing.  The MAIN attraction was the ginormous white tent filled with 100001 Thomas merchandise at jacked up pricing.  If your child loves Thomas, I do recommend going at least once.
