Thomas the Tank Engine Experience

In 2007 Drusillas Park became the first UK attraction to introduce a permanent Thomas & Friends train ride after securing a long-term deal with HIT Entertainment.

The passenger train ran from Tidmouth Hault, for ten years until 08 January 2017 when the contract came to an end. The Safari Express train replaces Thomas at the Park and is expected to be on the track from the end of March with two further rides (The Flying Cheetahs and Hippopotobus) due to open by June. Combined these three new rides will collectively be known as Go Safari! 

Meet Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends and explore the world of Drusillas Park. Go full steam ahead as you pass by the llama paddock and go on the lookout for Thomas’s friends. See our brilliant video below! 

Along your journey you will travel past some of the park’s most popular animals including the penguins and llamas, as well as many other cheeky characters in the depths of the zoo.
