Thomas the Train travels on Magic Mountain

The Island of Sodor is surrounded by beautiful blue seas. It has fields of green and sandy yellow beaches. It doesn't look much like Magic Mountain, a Six Flags Theme Park near Los Angeles, California, the roller coaster capital of the world. But Thomas the Tank Engine can ride the rails on both the fictional island and at the family theme park.
In Thomas Town, children can loop a small track behind a full-sized, blue, # 1 Thomas train in passenger cars Annie and Clarabel or race with Thomas' best friend the green cheeky engine # 6 Percy on a mini roller coaster. Cranky the Crane looks over splashing fountains where engineers big and small can cool off on a hot summer day. Much smaller than advertised and overrated for anyone over the age of four, Alex still found his own slice of heaven for a few hours at the park. The other 18 roller coasters will have to wait until Alex outgrows the height restrictions and mommy gets a little bit braver.
