Get ready for big adventures with Thomas at Action Canyon, a Thomas and Friends TrackMaster set.

The Good: Exciting train set features popular characters

The Bad: Track only includes one train car

In a Nutshell: Action Canyon is ready to be invaded by imaginative kids
At a Glance

Ages: 3 and up
Requires: 1 AA battery
Laying the Tracks
Before the fun begins, Thomas and his friends will have to wait for the railroad to be assembled. Detailed instructions with clear illustrations make building the track through Action Canyon an easy task. It does take a few minutes to sort out all the pieces and get a feeling for how their plastic connectors snap together. Once the bridge and the mountainous waterfall are in place, you need to place a single AA battery (not included) inside Thomas, so he can power uphill.

A Dramatic, Dynamic World
Be careful! One light tap on a secret button might cause the old rickety bridge to collapse right under Thomas. This colorful, sturdy track that runs through the unpredictable canyon is a great setting for imaginative play. Little engineers will love the switch that lets them pick whether Thomas busts through the waterfall or continues to the top of the mountain and on toward a daring descent.

Kids who have seen The Great Discovery or ardent fans of the Thomas and Friends TV show will love that they can immediately start recreating adventures, like the discovery of a long lost town on the island of Sodor, but familiarity with these existing storylines isn't essential. Any imaginative child will be able to enjoy a day at Action Canyon.

A Growing Circle of Friends
If climbing up a steep pass and zipping through a narrow passageway isn't exciting enough, Action Canyon can be combined with other TrackMaster sets to create a humongous world for Thomas to explore. Adding exciting, new destinations, additional engines, railcars, and trucks to liven up the secluded canyon is sure to make this set way more fun for multiple kids to play with.

The fact that Thomas only requires a single AA battery to run is convenient and economical, but he does labor a little bit on the steeper portions of track, which makes us wonder how he would fair pulling a heavy load. This seems a small concern compared with the potential of surrounding him and the Action Canyon with fun-loving friends and constantly evolving stories.

What's in the Box
53 piece track set, Thomas engine, and instruction booklet.

I was very unhappy with the Carnival train set that falls apart the minute you put a train on it. Very poor manufacturing and I had my reservations of purchasing any other set for my son, but the Thomas Action Canyon train set is durable and very well crafted. I put it together for him in a few minutes and it has not fallen to pieces when he rolls the trains on the tracks (the bridge had me concerned.) This is definitely a track set to add to your child's collection. I am very happy with it.

This toy is really cute! My kids (3 and 5) love it. My husband had no problems putting it together (besides the fact the kids were bugging him at the time)and it seems pretty durable to me. I did test it by half jiggling the bridge and the side came off but that was easy to put back. But it's not coming off with normal play. I love how the bridge drops down and the train comes through the waterfall. It would be cool to have real water but that would be very messy.

Very impressive track! It does need a lot of room, but keeps kids occupied for long periods of time. Really a good buy for Christmas and everyday. It also shipped FAST... At this point, it is the nicest of the Thomas collection.
This will make you happy and especially your child!!!! psv

Thomas at Action Canyon is a neat toy, doesn't take up a bunch of space and assembles easily. The remote con-
trol is a breeze for a toddler and turns itself off after a time of inactivity. It's nice to look at and can survive the
abuse a three year old can dish out. What we have found with our 3 1/2 year old is that he still prefers his Brio track and train set (all wood construction and strictly kid-powered, no batteries). He can set it up anyway he wants, with as many trains as he wants and let his imagination go wild. He is a great Thomas fan and recreates the situations he has seen on the Thomas stories. The are only limited situations with the Action Canyon, since it can only go one way (can't go uphill). Frankly, the big kids in our house and adults seem to want to play with Action Canyon more than the toddler, but that's just us! If we didn't have the Brio set, I would highly recommend Action Canyon, but I still feel batteries are detrimental to a kid's learning process.

Although my son loves this toy it was kind of hard to put together, lots of parts. After we put it together a few parts on the bridge tend to fall off but he plays with it all the time!!!! He just turned 4 and his little brother 18 months also loves to play with it.

This is our FOURTH Thomas Train set... It is the best one yet!

Our 2 grand daughters, ages 2 & 4, are totally captivated with this set.... Whether it is the spiraling upward climb of Thomas on the tracks, or the descent of the train down and through the plastic waterfalls ....

**This train set is a marvelous project and toy...that keeps their attention.**

Day 1:

Our just turned 4 year old GrandDaughter assembled the track side by side with GrandDaddy (that's ME!).

Track set up was about 45 minutes ... in which she participated by finding the right pieces to connect and connecting those she could handle.

...Cookie Break...

We are back and played with it for 2 hours.

Our 2 year old GrandDaughter had the same amount of fun playing with the track.

Since we have other Thomas Train sets we have extra engines, so that they each have one to play with and follow along the tracks.

Day 2:

This is the second day of playing with this set, and they have been in the playroom with this item for 3 solid hours. They play with other toys and keep coming and running the trains. It is the center piece of their activity.

I HIGHLY recommend this train set. It's constructive value to the minds of our children is wonderful and its entertainment value to them is amazing.

Eventually this will fade and they will want to watch Yogi Bear and eat ice cream ... come to think of it, so do I...

My daughter is 2 1/2 and loves this track. It is a lot of fun for her and she loves running around it to control if Thomas will go through or over the waterfall. It seems fairly sturdy but we have the occasional pieces come off and it's usually right around the bridge (that's where the "controls" are to make the train go through the waterfall versus over the top). She has to push pretty hard on the button to drop the bridge and that is what causes most of it. The issues we have ran into so far are thus, first, the force at which the trains go down the waterfall causes the switch on top of the train to move and it turns the trains off at the bottom when it hits the curve. This happens maybe 10-15% of the time. It's not a big deal, my daughter will either turn it on again or if she has two trains running the second train is able to push the first one around. Also, while going around the loop to the bridge/waterfall, the front edge of the trains seem to get caught on the plastic supports so we have to pick it up and correct it. Lastly, the size of this track it is roughly 67 inches in length and there is no way this will fit on a standard train table. Right now we have this on the floor and I'm debating having my husband make a custom table to fit it since we don't have a train table. If we already had a table, this would be a big minus and we probably would not have purchased it.
