Been to Thomas Land with my wife and 3yr old. Overall very enjoyable day out, Only a couple of negatives, if it's busy avoid the Winston ride, we queued for around 45 mins for a 2 minute ride by which time my 3 yr old had become grouchy and mardy, and the exit from this ride is straight into the...

We're just home from our trip for the Thomas weekend. Very long queues from the outset. Not helped by the fact that the staff were slow and sullen on most rides. Lots of rides going round half full despite the queues. We queued for 45 minutes from the '25 minutes' sign for Winston which is far too long with a... More

Hour long waits for 1 ride, cars half full, loading on and off rides taking longer than the ride itself. Impossible to work out where queues begin, poor children totally fed up. Needs better organisation & better management. Lovely friendly staff, has such potential, could do so much better

Visited on 18th March, prebooked our tickets and overall it was good value for money, I would have NOT paid the gate prices (double the online price) The rides were all very good and well themed! Staff seemed to spend a lot of time locking and unlocking gates and not much time filling up the empty seats on the rides!!... More

Had a great day out, kids enjoyed the rides and zoo. Adults enjoyed the bigger rides the shockwave and storm force 10 are some off the best rides I have ever been on. Only disappointment was the food available in the park wasn't great

I visited with my wife, 4 year old son and 2 year old daughter. Both of my kids really enjoyed the rides which are very varied whilst staying with the Thomas theme. Unfortunately the zoo let the day down considerably. My son was very excited to see all of the animals however nearly half of the enclosures were empty. It... More

The trip of a life-time was gifted to my two young children by those who gave out of their love, not their plenty. When we arrived (Feb 23, 2017), the gale force winds were so strong that they blew our double push-chair/stroller away. Why did we stay...because it was Thomasland, we came to see Thomas and Thomasland was open. We... More

Ok experience. The park is quite dated and very grey and depressing. Long queues for all the rides which is torture with a 3 year old. Lack of places to get anything to eat other than deep fried rubbish. The zoo is very sad. The animal enclosures are tiny and the poor panther was dementedly pacing his cage. It was... More
