Flynn’s Fire Training,


Set on a bluff overlooking the Monongahela River and the historic Edgar Thomson Steel Works in nearby Braddock, the site of Thomas Town fits in perfectly with the Island of Sodor. It is one of the largest single-year additions in Kennywood’s 120-year history, adding four new Zamperla family rides, plus retheming The Olde Kennywood Railroad into a Thomas & Friends story. The area also includes a retail store featuring a section to ‘Pick Your Own MINIS’ custom collection, soft-play area, Birthday Centre, and the entertainment show featuring Sir Topham Hatt, Percy, James, Emily, and Gordon. The attractions are placed in and around the existing footprint of the park’s train ride, which has operated at Kennywood with various themes since 1945.


Rides & smiles All of the rides and attractions feature beloved characters such as Thomas, Diesel, Salty, Iron Bert, Rusty, Cranky the Crane, Harold the Helicopter and more favorites. Guests can visit familiar destinations around the Island of Sodor, such as


Tidmouth Sheds and Knapford Station. Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the Railway on the Island of Sodor, is on site to greet and take photos with guests. The area’s main featured attraction is the Journey with Thomas train ride, which builds on the Olde Kennywood Railroad, which was originally constructed in 1945 by Vulcan Iron Works and Crown Metal Products. Since its 1945 debut, the train has undergone multiple theme changes, and for the last ten years has celebrated the storied history of Kennywood. The rethemed ride invites guests of all ages to hop aboard a Thomas-themed train ride that takes them along the back side of Kennywood, with great views of the Monongahela River and the Edgar Thomson Works, the oldest steel mill in the Steel City - truly reminiscent of something what you might see on the island of Sodor. The park's two 1939 Gimbels Flyer engines remain as part of the attraction. The first has been outfitted as a Thomas replica, using false wheels and a talking animatronic face, and is considerably larger in height than the original locomotive shell.


Thomas the Tank Engine was created more than 70 years ago by a British clergyman, the Rev W Awdry, as a storybook for his son. That story quickly grew to become the award-winning global brand franchise it is today, enjoyed by families in more than 150 territories and in over 40 languages across multiple touch-points and formats, from TV and films to toys, books and live attraction. With a Licensing Award for Best Classic Licensed Property, the famous and cheeky No.1 blue engine and his friends invite children to enter a world of imagination whilst experiences fun life lessons of discovery, friendship and cooperation.
