One of my favorite amusement parks, Kennywood, in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania, announced it is adding Thomas Town, featuring Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends. This new attraction will house four rides; Cranky’s Drop Tower, Harold’s Helicopter Tour, Flynn’s Fire Training, and Diesel Drivers, along with a life-sized Thomas the Tank Engine. Park officials expect the new addition to be ready in June.

Kennywood added its first train ride in 1945, the same year Thomas the Tank Engine was written. If you are a fan of Thomas, Cranky, Harold, Flynn and Diesel, make plans to check this out.
