Thomas Land!

Yup, a theme park based on Thomas the Tank Engine. Opening this spring in the UK. Drayton Manor Park has set aside 6,000 square meters of parkland for Thomas Land.

There are 12 rides in Thomas Land, an indoor play area and the obligatory gifte shoppe (I added the e's since it's in the UK).

How long until Orlando breaks out with a Thomas Land? It makes sense, the 'Day out With Thomas' live events around the country always seem to be mobbed with people. In a related note, I'm off to the land of the giant rodent next week.

Check out the official website here.
Here's a link to a Times Online review of the park, featuring video and a hard-hitting interview with Sir Topham Hatt.
